This week’s top 3DShare 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 real pieces of art, like Formbyte’s Snake Pendant. Continuing the wearables theme is this beautiful, gothic Skull Bowtie! Of course, we continue to see some amazing models, such as this Dragon – a fast and sturdy print which would make a great addition to any kid’s toy chest. Perhaps, the area that resonates most with the general public, is genius life hacks that wouldnt be possible without 3D printing. This week’s life hack is Reboottle, which helps turn old bottles into beautifully functionable, recycled vases and containers. This collection of the top 3D printable models shows us the wide range of 3D printable models available on the fastest growing 3D file marketplace for designers!
Jewelry has been one of the biggest success stories of the 3D printing world. The fact that jewelry is usually small enough to get a fast print has meant that the advances in printing have led to much more intricate pieces. You will have to go a long way to find a more detailed and beautiful piece than this Snake Pendant uploaded by Formbyte.
REBOOTtle is a simple idea to give new life to used plastic bottles! The two rings fit into the edge of the sliced bottle creating a fun jar for pencils, brushes or flowers! the dimensions are calculated to accommodate bottles with a diameter of 86mm, but you can always scale it to fit yours. The rings are suitable for bottles with a thickness up to 0.3 mm and they fit together simply by pushing them against each other with a little pressure. You can easily print them without the need for supports. You should also checkout Castomized’s other models – it’s no wonder he’s one of our most downloaded artists!
