Shapeways’ Top 10 Selling 3D Printed Products for August 2015 — Dice, Mounts, Cases & More

Share this Article

It’s the end of Summer, and its time for us to review the top selling Shapeways’ products for the month of August. Popular last month were elaborately designed dice sets, and cases for the Evolv DNA200. There’s a new gun-axe for Transformer Menasor, which was the top seller, a clip for your FitBit Flex, a cover for your Pebble Time smartwatch, a GoPro helmet mount, and a mount for your C64C case. It’s always interesting to see what sells the most on Shapeways, since it is a 3D printing marketplace with many, many choices.  Maybe you’ll find something here that you can’t live without!

#1 CW Blackjack Upgrade “Gun-Axe”

The top seller for the month of August is a “Gun-Axe” upgrade for Combiner Wars Legends Blackjack designed by fakebuster83. According to a Youtube video, this item attaches to Transformer Menasor’s chest so that Blackjack fits more securely onto it. It can also be used as a “battle axe” style weapon, of course!

#2 Kraken/Eldritch D20

This wild looking object actually has a purpose. This is not just a “terrifying” mass, it’s a twenty sided die that really works! It’s almost three inches across (7.1cm), and it might be perfect for your gaming dice collection. According to die designer, NVenom8Designs, this is “ideal for Call of Cthulhu, 7th Sea, Skulls and Shackles, or a seafaring campaign in any rpg system! Also a great life counter for kraken decks in MtG!” You can see the other dice by NVenom8Designs here.

#3 DNA200 v1 Faceplate+screen holder+buttons

I just learned what a DNA200, is, and this is a case for it. The DNA200 is a power-regulated digital switch mode DC-DC converter for personal vaporizers. For $12.76 – $17.56 you can get a faceplate, screen holder, and buttons for your DNA200 — printed in whichever color of nylon plastic you choose from Shapeways’ wide selection.

#4 Pocket Clip for FitBit Flex

This little clip is designed to securely hold your FitBit Flex. It can clip onto a pocket or somewhere else on your clothing to keep track of your fitness progress without you losing or misplacing it. The tracker is easy to snap in and out of the clip, and the clip is available in a range of colors for $8.99.

#5 Keyboard Mounts for C64C Case

Although the C64C case was released in 1986, this keyboard mount is suitable for all mainboard sizes of the now vintage C64C case. These mounts, designed by Tommes, are available for $24.00 from Shapeways, so you can update your case and make it more user-friendly.

#6 Thorn Dice Set with Decader

This set of seven dice includes a d4, d6, d8, d10, decader d10, d12, and d20. The designer, wombat, claims that although the dice are spiky, they won’t scratch your table. Sets are available in a variety of colored plastic or metals, with the most expensive set setting you back at $127.

#7 Pebble Time cover/ bumper

If you have a new Pebble Time smartwatch and you need  a cover/ bumper to protect it, then this is the item for you. It snaps off and on smoothly, and is designed to be very thin — maintaining the watch’s sleek style. It’s available in the Shapeways shop for $9.99 in a variety of colors. Also, the bumper can stay on the watch while charging, so once you put it on, it never has to come off.

#8 GoPro Helmet NVG Mount

This helmet works as a mount for your GoPro camera, affording it the best first person view. According to its designer’s instructions, “simply snap it in, hook up your GoPro camera and rest the camera case against the edge of your helmet.” All you need to assemble it on the helmet is the screw and nut that comes in the GoPro camera kit. BrainExploder Creations just made it much easier for you to easily use your GoPro camera, it seems.

#9 Evolv DNA200 Case with Buttons

This month it appears you have your choice of 3D printed cases for the Evolv DNA200 box. This one is modified with specifications that you should probably read about if you are planning to order it. Compared to the other case, that was the #3 top selling Shapeways’ product in August, this case runs $42 while the Mamu Mods case is $12.76. Either way, no matter which case type you choose in this list, you’ll be a Happy Vaporer with your own brightly colored and 3D printed DNA200 case!

#10 Celtic Dice Set

Dice sets are also popular this month on Shapeways. This one is a Celtic design by eondesigner that includes six dice that are available in a variety of Shapeways’ metals, including: stainless steel, polished and matte gold steel, polished and matte bronze steel, polished nickel or grey steel, or matte black steel. Each set, regardless of the metal you choose is between $75 – $99.
