This Week’s Top Printable 3DShare Models: Table Parts, Multi-Use Pot, Mars Migration Ship & More

Share this Article

I say this again and again, but I can never guess what will be included on our weekly review of 3DShare’s top printable models. It’s as if just when I am starting to think I can make some predictions, bam! The carpet is pulled out from under me. I am always expecting the usual fun/ctional items like the snap tab and the pot up, but Lawrence Butts has taken this week’s top models all the way to Mars with his Mars 1 Colony ship model. It keeps getting better for those who want to print useful everyday items, as well as those who use 3D printing to transport our imaginations to the not too distant future. Each of these top designs is available for a 99 cent download.

Snap Tab

This ingenious idea from Castomized, Snap Tab, is a 3D printed kit of parts that allows you to make a table out of any surface up to 30 mm thick, like a piece of wood or an old mirror. You will need: 1 snap tab body, 2 snap tab feet, 1 threaded rod, 3 nuts, and 2 washers for each leg to make a table with your surface. These parts can be printed on a compact micro desktop 3D printer.

PotUp!

Castomized also brings us this week a 90 x 90 x 45 mm multi-purpose pot for plants, pencils, and anything else you can think of using them for. They are handy because they collapse, and can be used when you need it. Print these pots in many colors on your micro desktop printer, and see how much more organized and colorful your life can get!

Voronoi Skull Mask

We can never get too much of the mathematically inspired Voronoi design, can we? Well now you can add a skull mask to your collection of 3D printed Voronoi objects — this one is made by Lin D.

Band Aid Box

Kurt R Hamel brings us a Band-Aid looking Band-Aid box that will help you avoid those pressing questions: “Do we have any Band-Aids? Do you know where they are?” and the usual answer, “I thought that I saw some shoved into that drawer.” For a home medicine cabinet, or as a travel item, this little case sets aside your supply for those times when you need one in a rush, and usually can’t find one. What’s not to like about this idea?

Mars 1 Colony Ship

Lawrence Butts is another 3D Share regular designer, and this week he offers one of three Mars 1 Colony ship designs based on an imaginary US government model with the intention of transporting 50,000 people to Mars. Whoa. In this science fiction scenario, migration to Mars begins in 2088, and the Mars 1 is launched in 2095. This is a man with a serious vision of the future, and he’s willing to back it up with some designs that take us there. Keep on keepin’ on, Lawrence Butts!

Which of this week’s top designs is your favorite? Let us know in the Top 3DShare Models forum thread.
