This Week’s Top 3D Printable 3D Share Models: Smartphone Hologram Screen, Weapons & More

Share this Article

This week’s top 3D Share models are a good sampling of the diversity of designers as well as ideas inspired by 3D printing. First we have a nude model, who kneels while casually scratching (?) her back. A base for a DIY smartphone hologram project replaces the need for tape when putting together a very cool 3D printed hologram generator for your smartphone. Also, weapons enthusiast Stephan Albert has a Ninja set now available for fans of his two previous weapons series. Finally, a Puzzle of Evil is provided that even the folks at the Khan Academy had trouble solving!

 

DIY Smartphone Hologram Screen

Holograms are photo-based images that project shape and texture in three dimensions, and apparently you can now use your smartphone to project these images! This particular design by Brian Ferrara is related to a 3D printed smartphone hologram project that has been modified by several people; here’s a YouTube video about the project. This provides a printed base of the phone that you use four pieces of fitted plastic with to create the hologram effect using your smartphone as a light source. In other versions, tape is required to keep plastic pieces together, but here Ferrara eliminated that need and simplifies the process. Now putting that smartphone to good use when it sits by idly has never been more rewarding. This fun contraption can be yours for a free download.

Weapons 3

Stephan Albert is a bit of a weapons enthusiast — make that a 3D printed weapons enthusiast. In the past his first two design sets have been featured as top models, and this week is no different with his third installation: ninja weapons, a 99 cent download. If you’ve seen or printed his previous weapons sets, you already know it started with a medieval themed weapons set including bow, arrow, quiver, axe and hammer. Then he turned to modern weapons, like guns, grenades, blades, bullets — and he also included a first aid kit. This third weapons set is for the ninja in you: collect them all!

Puzzle of Evil

I am assuming this puzzle gets its name from how hard it is to master. Last week Joe Larson contributed the T Puzzle, and this week he’s back for more puzzling design work. Larson claims it was inspired by a Khan Academy blog, and the object of the puzzle is to fit all the pieces into the available area. Just like the T Puzzle, this one has a difficult and a hard side, too. 3D print your own puzzle and get busy on this as soon as possible. The folks at the Khan Academy had one heck of a time solving the difficult side of the puzzle, so please be prepared to dedicate some real time to this one! Confound your friends with this free download.

Let us know if you’ll be making any of these on your 3D printer in this week’s Top 3D Share Models forum thread at 3DPB.com.
