It’s cool to download other people‚Äôs designs and print it. But why not design your own gear? Today, 3D prints for everyday life.
What to do when your shower head breaks? You can drive to your nearest bathroom specialist to find out that your order will take several weeks to deliver or you can print your own. The latter was the approach of Lieven Blancke from Ledeberg (Belgium). Details:¬†http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:33607
Customize your furniture
Do you love your IKEA Floor lamp?Probable not, but you could change it into something interesting, like a hanging version of the original! This is what Taylor Alexander (San Francisco, USA) did when he designed a lamp holder for his $8 IKEA Lamp. And when he finished his nice design, he thought about a coat rack to match his new lamp. And borrowing the immortal words of The Dude: ‚ÄúIt really tied the room together‚ÄĚ
Organize your life
Those messy kitchen cabinets can be annoying. After a long search for a spice rack that fits the different shaped cans, Tom Nagel (Venlo, the Netherlands) decided to design his own,¬† he made can-holders of different sizes that fit inside his kitchen-door cabinets. He is still customizing the different versions and will post his design soon.
