This is a compilation of 101 useful things that can be 3D printed!

Disclosure/Disclaimer:
I did not design any of these models and am taking no credit for any them, I searched for a very long time(over 8 hours!) and downloaded these pictures from the Internet. I thought that this would be acceptable because most of the compilations of 3d prints online are small and of not useful things.

Note: I do not have the files to print any of the following objects, this is simply to give you an idea of the usefulness of a 3D printer. But, all of the images were downloaded from the Internet and if you search you will probably find the file to download if you would like.

And that is 101 useful, practical, functional things to 3D print. Thank you for viewing and God Bless!
<p>Can I have the .stl file for the d20?</p>
<p>Or any kind of file for the d20? I can convert it using autodesk.</p>
unfortunately I do not have the .stl files as I stated on the beginning I found all of the pictures online through Google Image searches, I would advise searching for it either on Google/Bing or perhaps on thingiverse.com. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
<p>Too bad you have to click through 101 pages to see them all</p>
<p>No there's a way to see all in fewer than 100 clicks.</p><p>Totally irrelevant, but anyone else ready for an epistocracy?</p>
click view all steps and you can see them all in 1 click.
<p>There's always one</p>
<p>Step 1: Click &quot;View all steps&quot;<br>Step 2: Don't click through all 102~ pages<br>Step 3: ???????????<br>Step 4: Profit!</p>
<p>All the negative people need to put their egos aside and play nice. You can be helpful and not be a jerk.</p>
<p>Nice article, I'm putting some cool 3d printed stuff on my blog too if you'd like to check it out https://www.cool3dprinted.com/</p>
<p>all cool no junk? yeah, right. so unique, too. ( in case you don't find it on thingything first) And only $300 for a bow tie? bargain</p>
<p>The picture for #51 does not appear to be 3D printed. While I'm sure you can print clips like that, the picture is not proper. </p>
Thank you for trying to help, but according to its source it is 3d printed.
<p>You can clearly see the marks where the plastic was injected into the mold. Definitely not 3D printed.</p>
Ok sorry, from the source I thought that it would be, my bad. It could still be 3d printed however.
<p>Not with a standard extruding printer like 99.9% of use have. The overhangs on the female side of the buckle would be an absolute nightmare and most likely impossible. </p>
print it standing upright?
<p>You'd be able to most likely print the majority of it, but the actual slot where you thread your fabric or whatever would be near impossible. That's on FDM machines (standard consumer 3D printers, what about 99% of them are) but on sintering machines you would be able to do that no problem. Problem is they are still somewhat rare because of their multi-thousand dollar cost.</p>
<p>yeah yeah.... people without 3D printers continue to appear as experts and assume stuff around on the internet I see :-) :p </p><p>Get yourself a printer and start experiencing in stead ;-) </p><p>It is SO possible to print those buckles on a FFF 3d-printer. </p><p>The best result I got was when i printed the <a href="http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:348729/#files" rel="nofollow">http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:348729/#files </a> and it turned out very nice, strong and smooth.</p><p>I printed 2 and I had to give one of them away first time i showed it to anyone. He immediately asked &quot;can i have it?&quot; when he got it in his hand :D</p>
<p>Awww that's cute, I built both my printers. I'd love to see just how long those buckles worked for. got any pictures of them after actually using them instead of sitting on a trinkets shelf?</p>
<p>they are probably good for safety harnesses</p>
<p>Get REKT @solongsidekick</p>
<p>I don't think you know what that non-word means.</p>
Thank you.
<p>99.9% of USE?</p>
<p>Ugh thanks, supposed to be &quot;us&quot;.</p>
<p>this is a nice reference for things in 3d printing .. but it is NOT an instructable .</p>
<p>Very nice guide! I have always been interested in 3-D printing; will have to try some of these out sometime.</p>
<p>The idea of 3D printed products is simply innovative. It is something trendy and unique for every occasion. I always wanted to make some interesting gifts for my friends, and thankfully I landed on this site. The 101 tips were really simple and useful.</p><p>http://www.makewhale.com/</p>

<p>Very nice, download links would have been even better!</p>
<p>I can't Find the Pencil stl file :(</p>
<p>&quot;Door Graber&quot;</p>
<p>Awesome ideas! I will definetly print a few of these if I ever buy a 3D printer</p>
<p>It's really unfortunate that there is not an single instruction in this entire page. Even on Pintrest I can usually click on the picture to get to the actual items or instructions.</p>
<p>Maybe i am thumb, but where can i find the stl files?<br>Greetings Pavel</p>
Cool chess pieces, can you teach me how to do some simple 3D prints?
<p>Google sketch up or Solidworks, google it , youtube is full of tutorials :) </p>
He didn't make any of these.
I didn't say I did, in fact, I said that I didn't.
look in the &quot;You might also like&quot; section of this instructable and read the one called &quot;My very first 3d print&quot;. it goes over the learning process of designing and printing something.
which application I for make better 3d design
<p>Solidworks :)</p>
I have only used Google Sketchup but it seems to work very well.
<p>Great printouts.</p><p>Makes me want to own a 3d printer.</p>
That's for sure.
<p>You Sir might possible earn the award for the 'ible with most steps. I'm impressed. I knew that 3D printers have a lot of potential, but I was never creative enough to imagine most of these prints.</p>
Thank you very much!
Thank you , there is some great ideas and again thanks for sharing
great ideas and reminders. now I have an alternative over webcrawling to find a replacement feed-dog lever to my discontinued blind hemmer sewing machine.
