Over the course of the last few weeks, 3DSha.re has seen tremendous growth, as new designers make their way to the platform providing both free and paid content to the 3D printing community. While there are plenty of 3D printing repositories out there, 3DShare is unique in that they cater to those looking to earn some money for their time-consuming design work, as well as those looking to find exclusive 3D printable content.
With 3DShare every design file is completely free or is priced no higher than 99 cents. Another unique aspect that makes 3DShare stand out from the rest is the fact that they allow for the sharing of what they consider to be “Not Safe for Work” (NSFW) content. Last week, we featured the top 5 3D printable 3DShare models from those previous 7 days, and this week we do the same.
Kim (Kardashian) Nude
While the designer of this 3D printable model, Richard Swika, doesn’t say specifically that this is indeed a nude model of Kim Kardashian, he does refer to the model as “Kim Nude” and states that “It is a remarkably life-like sculpture representing the beauty of a real woman you might actually know — not a super-model.” By examining her proportions it is quite evident exactly which “Kim” Swika is talking about here. The model is ready to be 3D printed, in two separated pieces; the base and the body. Swika recommends priting it at 0.1mm with support material for the body.
Now you can have your very own life-like nude model of “Kim” sitting on your desk. This model is exclusively available only on 3DShare, for 99 cents.
There has been plenty of talk about 3D printed guns as of late. Now, apparently you can 3D print yourself a pair of nunchucks as well, with this 99 cent download. Even worse, this is a pocket-sized version of the weapon, making it easily concealable in one’s pant pockets. Of course designer Lawrence Butts has no intention of making these available for someone to use as a weapon, and the fact that desktop 3D printers can only print objects in plastic makes it highly unlikely that they would even be capable of doing much damage. With this said, this certainly may not be the case in the future as more and more material options become available for 3D printers. I would be interested to see what a copperFil or bronzeFil printed version of these would be like. Butts does warn that these are not intended to be used by children.
These will bring out the inner Bruce Lee in you,” Butts explains. “They are a lot of fun but not for children under 12 years old.”
There is nothing I hate more than trying to figure out exactly how much spaghetti to put in my pot. I’m not one for counting out each strand and trying to figure out how many pieces each of my guests should get. This does all the work for you. It allows you to measure the amount of spaghetti needed, based on how many people you are serving. This is another exclusive 3DShare item, designed by a man named Chauvin Xavier, and it is available for 99 cents.
This is a 3D printable statue that has been scanned and digitally remastered for V&A London of George Frederic Watts’ bronze sculpture of Clytie. Remastered by Studio Coco, they have now made this available for download via 3DShare for free. It can be downloaded and printed on any FFF-based 3D printer. If you want a piece of history in your home, then this might just be for you.
“Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Batman!!!” Do you know someone who is a huge fan of Batman? Then this is the perfect 3D printing project for you. Designed by a company called Castomized, this ring is easily 3D printed in less than an hour for just a 99 cent download. It has an internal diameter of 18mm (0.7 inches) but could be scaled to fit whichever finger you wish.
There you go! That was this week’s top 5 3D printable designs from the 3DShare repository. Be sure to upload your content to 3DShare for a chance to be featured in next week’s top 5 list! Which of these did you like the best? Discuss in the 3DShare forum thread on 3DPB.com.
