Free 3D Printable of the Week: A Voronoi Heart

Free 3D Printable of the Week: A Voronoi Heart

By Michael Molitch-Hou

A perfect gift for lovers of 3D printing, designer Esteban Pacheco has created a heart ornament with the indistinguishable mark of 3D printed design. Pacheco’s heart has that Voronoi style that can only be made easily with 3D printing and can only be loved the way a 3D printing enthusiast would. Print it out with soluble supports or, if you can stomach the wait, through a 3D printing service bureau with SLS. Happy Valentine’s Day!…

Free 3D Printable of the Week: A Voxel Castle

By Michael Molitch-Hou

Right now, Sketchfab, 3D Hubs, Qubicle, and 3D Slash are hosting a voxel-themed contest to demonstrate the creativity that can be achieved with simple and easy 3D modeling. By submitting a story-filled voxel diorama, entrants have a chance to win 3D Hubs 3D printing coupons, a Qubicle Master license, a Parrot Airborne Cargo drone, 12 months of Sketchfab PRO, a Lego Studio box and more. Showing off just what’s possible, Sketchfab user elbriga has created this downloadable castle.

Not every model submitted to the contest is downloadable, but those that are shouldn’t be too difficult to 3D print, given the simplicity of the shapes.…

Free 3D Printable of the Week: Freddie Mercury

Free 3D Printable of the Week: Freddie Mercury

By Michael Molitch-Hou

No one’s uploaded a great David Bowie figure to Sketchfab, so far, but we can at least pay tribute to Bowie collaborator and magnificent rock icon Freddie Mercury.  He may not have his own constellation. Instead the four-octave legend got an entire planet.  His music and persona empowered “fat bottom girls”, the LGBT community, and anyone with soul power, whether it be with the band Queen or Mercury’s solo work, including some heart wrenching opera. So, for those that have always held back tears when listening to “Under Pressure”, here is a free, 3D printable model of the one and only Farrokh Bulsara.…

Free 3D Printable of the Week: The Triumphe of the Republic

By Michael Molitch-Hou

I thought that, after news of Threeding’s many 3D printable Greek artifacts that I would share a free 3D printable work of art, as the replicas on the Threeding site will most likely exceed the budgets of most folks. There are, of course, plenty of repositories for free 3D printable objects, such as MyMiniFactory and Thingiverse, that you can spend the weekend perusing for historical content.  Below, you’ll find a printable version of the Triumphe of the Republic in Paris. This printable model was created by Sketchfab user HoangHiepVu, who simplified their high-quality scan of the sculpture so that it could be 3D printed.…

Free 3D Printable of the Week: 500K 3D Models

By Michael Molitch-Hou

From my interview with CEO Alban Denoyel, I learned that 3D model sharing site Sketchfab is really forward thinking, with the goal of reaching every relevant platform possible for embedding the 3D models uploaded to their site. The latest platform example is Volupedia, a mirror site of Wikipedia that Sketchfab has been using to show off how useful 3D models might be when researching topics on the open encyclopedia.

Since the beginning, Sketchfab has understood what the future of 3D will look like when everyone has access to 3D technologies.…
