This week’s top 3D Share models represent the variety of models on the site that continues to have one of the largest selection of printable models out there. Some models are functional (like Lawrence Butts’ really strong carabiners or brightly colored, mounted plant holders). Some models are fun (like the Summoner figurine who comes with a fantasy-like story about a magic spell and a snake or a Star Trek button). Some are both fun and functional (like the printable tray that makes star-shaped ice cubes). This collection of the top 3D printable models shows us the wide range of 3D printable models available on this 3D file marketplace.

Threaded Link Carabiners
3d1

Lawrence Butts is back this week with more 3D printable carabiners for you to consider. This is his second set of carabiners that he’s posted on 3D Share; his last set also made the Top Printable Models earlier this month. These carabiners, which have received 42,891 views and are available for a 99 cent download,  are 85 x 12 x 50 mm. Their “tube within a tube” design ensure maximal strength. You can check out the other printing details for these highly functional models on Butts’ 3D Share site.

Wall Flower Mount (click)
3d2

These 3D printed mounted wall plant holders came in an earlier version, now updated into three parts each for easier printing, and so you can print in many colors. Also, now you can assemble the components using the click system — so there’s no need for glue. If you are looking for mounted plant holders, this just might be for you! These plant holders are available for a free download from designer 3D-PrintersVDB.

The Summoner

3d3

The 3D printable model designer Fantasygraph has provided a figure called “The Summoner” who comes with a story about a woman who “lived near the spine of the world” in a big city, the daughter of an unknown wizard. While her father is out working one day, she began to explore her father’s book of magic spells. Bubbles started to form around her feet, and these bubbles eventually became a snake that asks her, “What can I do for you, young mistress? And what will be my dinner?” …To be continued? This enticing storied design, available for a 99 cent download, is from the same designer whose “Love Me” statue was featured last week.

Star Trek Button
3d4

Science fiction-themed 3D printable models have quite a following since there is significant overlap between the “Trekkie” subculture and the maker culture. After all, some of the things you can do with 3D printing feels very futuristic, right? This is Oral Tosun’s simply designed Star Trek button, that can be scaled up or down to suit the user’s needs. You can have your own for a 99 cent download. Happy printing, Trekkies!

Star Ice Tray
3d5

This whimsical ice tray from nithin mamadala features 10 stars and a set of sticks, that can be used to stir drinks, perhaps? It appears many people are interested in the possibility of adding star-shaped ice to their late summer drinks, because this model has received 884 views, and 18 downloads so far. For a 99 cent download, you can have your own star-chilled beverages.

Do any of this week’s top designs appeal to your practical side–or your sense of whimsy? Let us know if you’ll be creating any of these designs in this week’s Top 3D Share Models forum thread over at 3DPB.com.
