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.
