Another week, another bunch of amazing 3D printable designs hit 3DShare. Last week brought us a nude 3D printable model of Kim Kardashian, as well as several other intuitively designed objects, available to be 3D printed. This week there are some equally impressive and equality controversial 3D designs that have become popular on what some refer to as the “Reddit of 3D printable design files,” 3DShare.
This week’s top 5 list from 3DShare includes some functional products as well as some quick-to-print items. Here they are!
Nipple Pasties / Tassels
No party is complete without a set of 3D printed nipple tassels. As the designers of these fashion accessories (if you can call them that) explains, you can now “Print these swanky tassels, simply clip off the baked-in supports, and get to twirling.”
Personally I have no use for them, but evidently they are quite the hit among other 3D printing enthusiasts, as they’ve gathered a lot of attention in the short time that they have been made available to download for 99 cents. Perhaps this is the fashion of the future… Or perhaps not!
Uniquely Designed Bow Ties
Maybe it’s the Avengers that you are obsessed with, or perhaps you are a large supporter of Bitcoin. Either way, 3DCloud Inc. has made a library of different bow ties available to download and 3D print. These designs include a Captain America version, as well as a Brain bow tie, and many more. Each of these is available to download for just 99 cents and they are ready to be printed on your FFF-based 3D printer.
Seej Starter Set
For those of you who like tabletop war games, this is just the design for you. Seej is an open-source game built around 3D printing. In order to play, you simply need to 3D print several objects, including two catapults, then grab some rubber bands and pennies and you are ready to go. Complete rules for this game can be found on their website. This might just be the thing to keep you busy while you wait for your nipple tassels to finish printing. The entire set of designs are free to download.
Bat Ring (The Light Version)
Last week, we featured the 3D printable Bat Ring, and this week it appears as though the Bat Ring Light is gaining in popularity. This is such an incredible design because it literally only takes a few minutes to print out on most 3D printers. Since it features an empty center, the material used is very minimal. This is the perfect solution for that Batman fan that just doesn’t have much patience. Exclusive to 3DShare, it can be downloaded for just 99 cents.
When I look to 3D print things, I tend to focus on functionality, but it is always a plus when those objects I wish to print are also tiny, allowing for a quick easy print job. This is certainly the case with these 3D printed card stands. Like the Bat Ring Light above, these take only a few minutes to print out and can be quite handy. They can be used for business cards, photos, message cards, or anything else you can think of–all for a free download.
