A few months ago we posted 16 things that you can 3D print with your MakerBot and we thought it was time to revisit Thingiverse and see what else they had to offer. We’ve gathered some of the most useful things that we found – from phone cases to a jewellery tree. Check out some of the most useful stuff that you can 3D print!
1. Bike planter
Add a small planter to your bike and have some greenery with you on the go.
It’s useful and decorative! Here’s an easy way to organize your jewellery.
Don’t you hate it when you break a zipper pull? Save old bags and hoodies by 3D printing yourself a new one.
An actual working padlock that has a five-lever tumbler mechanism that opens with the correct key. (Or if you’re the Nancy Drew of lock-picking.)
Meant for an electric piano, you can 3D print your own sustain pedal. There’s also a helpful YouTube video on the page to help assemble it.
Cherry pits are annoying so this person created this little tool to easily remove them.
Keep your headphones tangle-free with this ghost shape that you can wrap them around when they’re not in use.
Sometimes you just don’t have a measuring spoon in the perfect size so…just 3D print what you need. For example, the creator made a specific 2 tsp measuring spoon so his brother can make the perfect cup of tea every time.
SOS! Save your snacks. Keeps your chips fresh with this chip clip that easily goes on to the bag.
Probably not the most protective of iPhone cases, but if you’re looking to add some colour to your iPhone then here’s a template to use.
11. Structure clock
We love this simple wall and table clock design. You can vary the colour and fill to suit your style and the finished product looks pretty cool.
I wouldn’t want to ride over any bumps just in case, but this bike clamp that allows a phone to snap into the handlebar is pretty cool in theory. I’ll let someone else test how it works.
