13 3D Printed Gift Ideas for Geeks and Gentleman
by Fabian | April 23, 2015
Gift giving is not easy – especially for men. And offering a pair of socks or a new tie every year might not be the most unique idea. But there’s help: there’s something for everyone, from geeks to gentlemen, in our shops. Now might be the perfect time to finally offer them their first 3D printed gift – in plastics, steel, titanium, or even ceramic.
Is he a rather grumpy guy? Then we have his new best friend in store: “That Darn Cat” by Matt Bagshaw, 3D printed in Multicolor.
A fashionista? How about a 3D printed item in Titanium? “A Titanium Rock” brooch by DAMN sure is an eye-catcher. Or try the “Ion Cufflinks” by uformit: you can go to their website and customize the cufflinks with the initials of your choice – available in 3D printed Silver, Gold, Titanium, and Brass.
Is he a geek? Then he can probably use this Raspberry Pi case made out of 3D printed raspberries in Polyamide, “Raspberries for Everyone!” by Cody Reisdorf.
Is he always looking for smart tools? Then this handy “Saw Wrench” by the Tinkercad Team might just be what he’s looking for, 3D Printed in Stainless Steel.
Or how about an acoustic amplifier for his phone? The “Bheard Sound Pod” by Bhold enhances the highs, mids and lows of a smartphone’s audio, 3D Printed in Ceramics.
Is he a scale model enthusiast? Then a 3D printed train model in Gray Resin is the perfect choice. Check out the “Chassis Wien T1” tram by Guido Mandorf and learn how to paint this model in Guido’s tutorial here.
Somebody looking for action? We have mounts for cameras in store. Take a look at this Camsports EVO camera mount for ski goggles by Monique de Wilt or a GoPro mount for kite surfers by Imprenta3D. Both were 3D printed in Polyamide.
