Weekly Roundup: Ten 3D Printable Tiny & Miniature Things

by • July 8, 2016 • No Comments

3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_bannerI may be opening myself up to a lot of jokes here, but I’m just going to say it, I ponder small and small things are lovely
. Whether it’s a small dog, a small car, a small tool, a small toy or a small man, I ponder small things are always lovely
, and I’m most likely going to want to have it in my life. I don’t understand why, the giant meaty stumps that I call hands generally can’t use anything that’s too small. And miniature versions of things that don’t in fact do anything assist no purpose other than to just clutter up my house, but I yet ponder they’re all lovely
and I want to shove all of them in my pocket.

I realize that there are of five or six future double entendres hidden in that last paragraph, but I’m in fact not joking in the slightest. I have always liked small things, at any time since I was a kid. I ponder it started when I was young and my mother utilized to create and assemble miniature dollhouses and fill them with miniature doll furnishings and doll-dimensionsd things. Despite being small and unquestionably dimensionsd to be utilized by my G.I. Joes, my mother’s doll houses were always off limits to me. God, it always comes down to our mothers, does not it?

Anyways, while I try to ignore my ongoing initially world childhood traumas, I decided to find ten of the most lovely
teeny small, itty bitty 3D printable things around. Here are Ten 3D Printable Tiny & Miniature Things:

MINI ATARI 2600 GAME SYSTEM3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_atari_1

Mini Atari VCS 2600 Heavy Sixer by RabbitEngineering

Found on: Thindonaterse
Cost: Free

Since I started this off by peeling away one layer of my fractured psyche, I can as well risk another. Being a child of the late 70’s/early 80’s means that, like most, my initially video game process was the Atari 2600. I wish there was a few other deep-seated reason for me to want an lovely
, little, mini, completely non-functional version of the video game process that I grew up playing, but I’m not certain there is much additional to it than that. And if you are a bit younger than I am, but afflicted with the same small thing obsession that I am, and so here is a mini Nintendo Entertainment System for you.3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_atari_2

TINY TAPE GUN-SHAPED TAPE DISPENSER3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_tapegun_1

Mini Tape Gun – Tape Dispenser by brycelowe

Found on: Thindonaterse
Cost: Free

At quite least this little thing in fact assists a purpose other than being an object to clutter up my bookshelves. This small tape gun is thoughtlly dimensionsd for a standard roll of scotch tape. Not just can this diminutive tape dispenser sit on your desk, it can in addition be utilized just as you may use a larger tape gun. It is in fact thoughtl for wrapping gifts, that is not always effortless to do while attempting to tear off a piece of tape one handed. Of course I wish it was the useful aspects of this version that drew me to it, but it is not; I like it for the reason it’s just a small tape gun. There is a fewthing wrong with me. 3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_tapegun_2

TINY HURRICANE LAMP3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_hurricanelamp_1

Cost: Free

I feel like if you have been reading my Weekly Roundups for a while and so you’d understand why this small lamp is so irresistible to me. Yes, I like lighting, most likely a lot additional than I like small things, but when you mix the two together I’m manufacturing a squee noise right now. Maybe it’s just my lizard-brain that loves things that light up mixing with my love of small things, but this lamp is just too darn cute. It is in addition a quite easy 3D printing project that just requires a small LED bulb, a watch battery and a bit of brass shim. But what little effort may be requireed to manufacture this small lamp is totally worth it.3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_hurricanelamp_2

TINY 3D PRINTERS3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_3dprinting device_1

Tiny 3D Printer by renobot

Found on: Thindonaterse
Cost: Free

I may in no way put together a list of lovely
small things without which include small 3D printing equipment, now may I? Whether you are manufacturing these for your kids, as donateaways or just for the reason it’s worth having a small 3D printing device that does not jam or manufacture comical noises when it prints, this is a version that you require to have printed at quite least once. And if the generic 3D printing device create of createer Renobot just does not do it for you, and so you can 3D print a mini version of a Solidoodle or a 3D Systems Cube. I mean, you most likely didn’t want a full dimensions version of either of these 3D printing equipment when they were on the market to purchase, but a mini version mayn’t probably be less useful.3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_3dprinting device_2

MINI SPOOLS OF 3D PRINTING FILAMENT3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_filament_spools_2

Mini filament spool and earring carousel stand by CreativeTools.se

Found on: MyMiniFactory
Cost: Free

How useful may a mini 3D printing device be without a bunch of mini spools of 3D printing filament? About as useful as a real 3D Systems Cube of course. These are technically earrings, with the hook being the strand of filament tail coming off of the spool, but there is no reason that you can’t just print them to have cute little spools of filament. The STL files in addition include a 3D printable carousel stand that can hold the spools, or any earrings with a hook that you want to hang on it.3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_filament_spools_1

Here is a video of the spools being 3D printed and assembled:

MINI STAR WARS LIGHTSABER3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_lightsaber_1

Light Saber Mini by muzz64

Found on: Thindonaterse
Cost: Free

I mean. Come on. I quite shouldn’t have to explain why this is awea few. This fun little 3D version is in addition quite well createed; not just is it 3D printable as a single part, but the createer has figured out the precise layers at that the print can be pautilized to print the version in multiple colors. The lightsaber blade can extend all on its own; howat any time, you may require to clean off a little bit of assist material in order for it to open and close. If you don’t have a 3D printing device that lets you pause, or if you are lazy like me and just don’t want to bother, and so it is effortless adequate to paint it the colors that you want. I’d recommend 3D printing the entire thing in a transparent material like red, blue or green and and so painting the handle with a metallic paint. No one can at any time understand that you cheated except you and I, and I promise not to tell.3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_lightsaber_2

I can’t quite ponder of anything much additional Freudian than dangling a pair of testicles of an over-dimensionsd truck, but I can’t stop giggling like a middle schooler whenat any time I see a pair of these in real life. So the thought of individuals putting them on small remote regulated cars manufactures me laugh actually additional. What does that actually say of you and any future issues with your masculinity that you may have? I’m quite confutilized, but quite amutilized at the same time. I’m Comutilized.

And don’t worry, if you quite require a set of these guys for your real life “it’s a excellent dimensions!”-mobile and so the STL is easily scaled up. I guess you may in addition turn these into earrings if you quite wanted to, but that’s a dark corner of your subconscious that i’d quite not venture into in these times, thanks.

True, back to lovely
stuff to finish off this week’s list, and it does not get much cuter than a small gingerbread house. An enterprising manufacturer 3D printed out a few easy templates for gingerbread cookies that manufactures it super effortless to cut out the correct dimensionsd parts to create small little gingerbread houses. This is a excellent way to rapidly manufacture Christmas decorations, sweet holiday treats or put together a fun activity for a house party. Just bake off the parts, use a few icing to assemble the house and and so donate your guests colored frosting and candy and let at any timeyone go to town. And it appears like it may in addition be quite effortless to bump up or down the dimensions of the cookie cutters a bit in order to manufacture slightly larger or slightly additional lovely
mini gingerbread houses, so you may manufacture these quite endearingly
small if you wanted to.3dp_ten3dpthings_Tiny_Miniature_gingerbread_2

Well that’s the Weekly Roundup and I had a excellent time appearing for small things for you to 3D print this week. As always, if you 3D print anything of my list, or just feel like sharing what you are working on this week with me, please feel free to email me or send me a tweet @SJGrunewald. Happy 3D printing!
