This week’s top 3D printable 3DShare models include a few surprises. For one, we have an anatomically correct vagina that can be used in anatomy lessons (what else would you use it for?!) If that doesn’t float your boat, there’s a nifty pillbox, cute flower spinner toy tops, a handy “Glass Liberator” to be used for breaking glass in emergencies, and a mystical pyramid ring with box to delight you. Maybe you’ll even spend this holiday weekend printing one of these top models from 3DShare’s vast selection.
Don’t you hate carrying around small valuable items, always worrying that you will lose them somewhere? Well, with this next design, free to download, you no longer have to worry about that problem. This is a sleek, small, and discrete pillbox designed by Jules that can also hold breath mints, coins, or anything else small you don’t want to lose.
Children’s toys frequently require batteries, and they can lose their luster after a while. Usually it’s the simplest toys that produce the most fun. These happy and fun objects — also designed by Jules, and free to download — are modeled after toy tops that spin around and around. You can print them out in several different colors, creating nice effects as you spin them all at the same time. According to the designer, they “actually work pretty well,” too. You can see for yourself by downloading these from 3DShare and printing an entire garden of flower spinners!
For over a month, each week Lawrence Butts has provided a top design each week on 3DShare. And given the diversity of his designs, one wonders how he comes up with these ideas of his. Anyway, this week’s idea is a “Glass Liberator” that can be used in the event of an automobile accident to break the glass from the inside. Butts states that this tool “should only be printed using ABS or ABS carbon filament” — recommending printing the tool at a minimum of 20% infill and 3 shells for structural integrity and weight. Butts also recommends using a “high strength epoxy” to affix the bottom of the Liberator. The tool works by using both hands, with one hand on palm’s bottom and the other hand gripping it. Available to download for 99 cents, this design sure could come in handy!
This aptly named model is brought to us from another tried and true 3DShare designer, Richard Swika, who has been delivering ring boxes fairly steadily for the past several weeks. This design is a pyramid-shaped “charging station” and box evoking the supernatural and mystical properties of pyramids, set to house Swika’s Mystical Pyramid Ring–wearers of this ring have reported improved moods and energy levels. Swika recommends you use the station to “recharge” the ring when you are not wearing it to ensure it functions at its full potency. The box is available for 99 cent download (and the ring, separately, for another 99 cent download).
This anatomically correct vagina, designed by Lin.D, is different from his usual designs, which are quite popular on 3DShare and have been included in our top 3DShare models in previous weeks, like the Voronoi skull and the Mayan calendar, for example. This one can be used to teach proper female anatomy. What else would you possibly use it for, after all? The vagina can be downloaded for 99 cents.
Let us know which of these is your favorite in this week’s Top 3DShare Models forum thread over at 3DPB.com.
