Post your IDEAS of what should be printed in 3D

Recommended Posts

Did you ever see a photo or actually something with your own eye that just screamed... make me printable ?

Well I thought this would be a nice new tread on the ultimaker forum.. share your snaps and web shots of what would be super cool to 3d model and print..

Maybe if we can find some super ideas,, some of the chaps on the forum can actually model up the really popular ones and allow the lot of us to have a massive amount of fun printing them ?

So share your SHOULD BE IDEAS ! :-) :-)

for example.. this one caught my eye this morning.

This strange russian tank creation would be a ball cracking model to design and print.. Lots of lovely details and when this is printed up.. cleaned up.. sanded and then primer... and some paint to make it look old and rusty... WOW...

Just an idea... ;-)

does anyone else have the feeling.. ohhh that would be an interesting application for 3d printing.. the wheel design I mean ;-)

I always loved the idea of printing wheels on plan, using only clever flexable design to give a working wheel its own strenght and suspension... :-)

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
