What work place items have you printed to show off your 3D printing skills?

I'm relatively new at my job and I think I want to jazz up my office space/desktop.

What are some fun things you have printed to make your work desk more entertaining?

(I was going to print a pen/pencil holder...but I think I want something fancier than just that!)

    I printed a little T-Rex skull to sit on top of my screen:

    And this gear-cube I often find myself casually fiddling with during small tals and meetings (keeps the hands busy but dosn't distract focus):

    I can point you to the designer, but unfortunately the files are not (yet?) out there..

    (It appears that his website is offline for the moment, but the link I gave you now is his side project.)

    Didn't mean to derail your office supply topic, lets get back on track! :p

    Yeah its nice in the geeky way... :)

    This one is printed in two parts (to get details on all sides), glued together, primed with auto-filler, sanded a bit here and there, primed again with paint primer and then hand painted with citadel miniature paint (the stuff you use for tabletop miniatures like warhammer etc.)... Finally its had a layer of gloss varnish, mostly for protection.

    This is what we have in my room at work, since my wife asks me to remove the "plastic garbage" as she says, from the home.

    The stretchlets and the cuddling cats proved to be the unbeatable presents!

    I think the owl is one of my favorite prints, I printed one at the normal size and down to 2 inches tall to show off the detail the Ultimaker Original can do.

    Whenever friends learn I have a 3D printer, the men ask if I can print guns that work...and women inquire about "private toys" Yikes!
