50+ Best 3D Printing Creations

If you haven’t noticed by now, 3D Printing rocks. The future is truly here, because of it. Soon we will be able to print most everything that we need, from toys, to dishes, to parts for our own diy gadgets and even medical devices. It is still in its infancy of course, but the things it can do even now are pretty amazing – it will only get better! Right now 3D Printers are still pretty expensive, so it will be a little longer before everyone has one of those bad boys in their home printing out all kinds of crazy awesome stuff – if you cant wait, check out these 3d printers under 500. If you haven’t heard of 3D Printing yet, get familiar with it!

What is 3D Printing?

Well, since you asked, here is a little rundown from that wikipedia fad the kids seem to enjoy on the interwebs.

Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. 3D printing is considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling (subtractive processes).

A materials printer usually performs 3D printing processes using digital technology. Since the start of the twenty-first century there has been a large growth in the sales of these machines, and their price has dropped substantially.

The technology is used for both prototyping and distributed manufacturing in jewelry, footwear, industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education, geographic information systems, civil engineering, and many other fields.

So as you can see, our future is looking pretty bright. Things that were once impossible to create, with the help of 3D Printing and technology, seem very very possible now! To make your imagination run wild with the possibilities of 3D Printing we have put together a list of some of the coolest, most functional, and badass 3D Printed Creations & Ideas we have seen in a while! So kick back and relax while ideas of the future melt your face off. Whatever project you are working on, I hope that these ideas inspire you to make something awesome yourself, to contribute to the awesome future we are all going to have – Enjoy!
