3D Printing – 5 Amazing 3D Printed Objects

Our growing interest in all things 3D has expanded the 3D printing arena as more innovators push that boundaries on 3D print creations.

It no wonder that 3D printing stocks like 3D Systems (DDD[1]) and Stratasys (SSYS[2]) are having such good years.

The following gallery compiles some of the most amazing 3D printed objects out there (via HongKiat[3]).

From kids’ drawings come to life to powerful guns, these 3D printing creations are sure to amaze.

#5 Most Amazing 3D Printing: Semi-automatic and fully auto guns[4]

A gun fresh off the printer! Defense Distributed allows its customers the ability to download[5] the necessary files to print firearms, as long as you have a 3D printer at home.

Check out the video in the headline link that shows how the guns operate.

#4 Most Amazing 3D Printing: Acoustic Guitar[6]

A new guitar model has been created — meaning if you have access to a 3D printer, this creation can be yours as well.

The guitars are created with plastic, with an added metal soundhole cover and heel joint. Guitarists are now even making 3D printed guitars based off the models of their favorite musicians.

#3 Most Amazing 3D Printing: 3D Printed Shoes[7]

These 3D printed high heels[8] – dubbed Morphogenesis — were designed by Pauline Van Dongen and made from laser sintered nylon.

The innovative design won the ‘Most Creative Collection’ award at Mittelmoda and put more eyes on 3D printed fashion.

#2 Most Amazing 3D Printing: Camera Lense[9]

This camera lens replaced the glass with acrylic, then added in plastic for the other small parts in this working camera.

Not convinced? Just look at these pictures[10] taken with the 3D printed lens.

#1 Most Amazing 3D Printing: Children’s Drawings

This one made us believers. Want your child or grandchild to see how their art can really come to life. Canyon Creations has pioneered the way for kids to see their drawings become real.
