Another week, another great list of 3D printable designs from the always entertaining, sometimes controversial, 3D printing repository we have all come to love (or hate), 3DSha.re. Last week’s list of the top files for that week, brought us the 3D printable nipple tassels, a bat ring, and more. This week’s list may be just as exciting.
Here you have it…. The top 3D printable design files from 3DShare for the week of April 5-11, 2015.
3D Printed “Sexy Camie” on a Yoga Mat
Richard Swika has become quite the name within the 3D printing space as of late, with his controversial 3D printable files, ranging from the Nude Kim (Kardashian) model to the Naked Jello Wrestlers. His designs are considered to be either highly sought after or highly offensive, depending on who you ask. This latest design features a woman laying on a yoga mat, and it is available in three different version; G, PG, or R. The G version features “Camie” in a swimsuit, while the PG version features her topless, and the R version is a fully nude model. In all, these models take about 5 hours to print out, using a bit of support material which is very easily removed after being printed. Swika recommends printing with a layer height of 0.1mm, and the 3D printable file is available exclusively on 3DShare for 99 cents. Below you can see a timelapse video of a this model being printed.
This is quite the interesting creation, one which features a good amount of detail. Designed by Renato Tarabella and available for 99 cents, it is a displacement lamp that has been created for a standard E27 bulb holder. Tarabella says that it is the perfect fit for hanging over a small 2-chair table. He recommends printing it with a 0.24 layer height at a speed of around 80mm per second. At this speed it will take approximately 3 hours and 40 minutes to print out.
The Birth of Meri I & II
For those of you who are fans of the female body, but don’t prefer the designs that may take things a step or two too far, this might be just for you. Designed by Studio Coco, these two models depict a bald-headed nude woman rising up as if she were “being born.” These are also available to download and 3D print for just 99 cents each.
Brick Dice Tower
For those of you who like to get a little entertainment value out of the simple act of rolling dice, this 3D printable brick dice tower may be the thing for you. It also ensures that everyone playing a particular game is rolling their dice fairly. No one likes cheaters! Designed by Joe Larson and available to download for 99 cents, this creation prints without any need for support and even comes with a dice tray that closes up to become the tower’s door.
The IKEA Compatible Lamp Shade
I don’t know about you, but IKEA is one of my favorite places to shop. They have just about everything imaginable for the home, including interesting lamps. This design, by Fabricatelab, is for a 3D printable lamp shade that is compatible with the IKEA SEKOND cord set. Printed with support, it measures 162 x 162 x 148 mm in dimensions when complete and is available to purchase and download for just 99 cents.
