30 Awesome Things To 3D Print Which Are Actually Useful

If you’ve just bought a 3D printer of you’re thinking of buying one, you’re probably just as excited as I was when I got mine running. Unfortunately, it can take a while to wade through the thousands of ornaments, figurines and trinkets available to find something you’d actually be interested in.

So instead of wasting you time and filament printing junk you don’t need, lets make something useful. After all, printing useful things makes it easier to justify your printer’s rather expensive existence to your significant other.

All of the print models are free and are available for download through the link provided by clicking on the image.
