3D Printed Gifts For Dad

3D Printed Gifts For Dad

If you’re stuck on what to get your dad for father’s day, Christmas, his birthday, or any other occasion. Rather than just getting him another pair of socks, how about 3D Printed a Gift? If you already have a 3D printer, some filament, and the knowledge of how to make 3D printed objects, it makes perfect sense to put it to good use.

If you can think of something special and unique that you think he might like, you could try designing your own 3D blueprint. If that sounds like a good idea, but you’re not sure how. Take a look at this article from CNet.

But if you’re not sure you’re up to the challenge of designing your own gift from scratch. Or you’re struggling to get the creative juices flowing, you can always try downloading a pre-made design from Thingiverse.

Things To 3D Print For Dad

If you’ve decided you’d rather download a premade template to get you started, your sure to find some good options below. Keep in mind that you don’t have to print these ideas exactly the way they are. You can think of them as more of a starting point and make any customizations you want before printing.

If your dad needs a new wallet, this gift could be a great option. It’s a wonderfully compact design, with slots for 5 cards and an extra space for coins, notes, keys, and any other small items he might have.

It has a self locking mechanism to keep anything from falling out and it’s less than 14mm thick. You could even make it more customized by adding his name or initials on it.

If you want to print this amazing gift, you can download the blueprints from Thingiverse here.

If your dad wears a watch, how about a stand for it? If his watch is a traditional watch, you could go with something like this. But if your dad has an Apple watch, you might want to go with one that has an integrated charger like this.

If your dad likes model ships, he might like this one, its a miniature replica of The Endeavor. It can also be removed from it’s stand to see the detail on the bottom.

If your dad wears glasses and often does things in the dark, this could be the perfect gift. This particular design is for the size and shape of a specific flashlight, but if your dad has a different flashlight you could always adjust it to be the correct shape and size.

If your dad likes drinking beer, he might like a 3D printed beer holder. You could print him one to hold in his hand like this one. Or a pegboard mounted one like this one. You could even customize it a bit to say something like “Dad’s Beer”.

If your dad wears ties, he might like a tie holder to keep them all neat and tidy. This one has space to neatly hold eight ties on the hanging rail in his closet. If you think this is something your dad might like, you can download the blueprint from Thingiverse here.

If your dad often hammers in nails, he might like a nail holder so that he doesn’t have to put his fingers in danger. It makes the process of hammering in nails much safer and easier to do. If you think this is something your dad might like, you can download the blueprint from Thingiverse here.

If your dad likes to watch TV, but has trouble keeping track of the remote. This could be the perfect gift for him. There are many different kinds to choose from depending on what remotes he has and how many of them he has. So I’ll link to a few different styles below.

Remember, if you don’t see one that will completely fit his needs, you can always just pick one and make some adjustments to it.

This one is only for an Apple TV remote and has a cool design in the shape of an apple.
