3D printing is a great way to create unique and customised items for yourself or as gifts for others. However, it’s not as simple as buying a 3D printer and jumping straight into creating complex objects! We recommend starting out with a few relatively straightforward prints to get the hang of this delicate skill.
It’s also worth mentioning that eSUN is at the forefront of high quality filaments, so make sure you stock up on filament from this industry-leading brand. Without further ado, here are a few ideas for 3D print projects to get you started.
1. 3D print a phone case
This is a great idea if you want to make a case for a new phone or even an older model that you can’t find in stores anymore. You can either find a design online or create your own using some simple modelling software. If you’re feeling really creative, you could even add some embellishments like jewels or patterns.
2. 3D print a toy
There are loads of great toys that you can find online or design yourself. If you have young children, they’ll love seeing their favourite characters come to life right before their eyes. And if you’re looking for a more challenging project, try your hand at designing and printing your own board game pieces.
3. 3D print a figurine
This is a great option if you’re looking for a unique gift for someone special. You can find plenty of sites online that sell pre-made models, or you could create your own using photos and a bit of imagination. Just make sure the figurine is small enough to fit on your printer’s build plate!
4. 3D print a keychain
A keychain is a great way to add a personal touch to your keys. You can find plenty of designs online, or you could even create your own using some simple shapes. We recommend checking the hole for the keyring is big enough so it’s easy to put your keys on and take them off.
5. 3D print a jewellery holder
If you’re looking for a way to organise your jewellery, look no further than this handy little project. You can find plenty of designs online, or you could even create your own. Again, just make sure the holes are big enough so you can easily put your necklaces and bracelets through them.
6. 3D print a phone stand
A phone stand is a great way to keep your device charged and within easy reach. You can find plenty of designs online, or you could even create your own using some simple shapes. Be sure the hole for the charging cable is big enough so it’s easy to plug in and unplug!
So there you have it – six easy things that you can print out with a bit of patience. We hope you have fun exploring the world of 3D prints. Happy printing!
