Even more useful things from the 3D printer

children screw toy from 3d printer

Here and now the continuation from the first part, about sense and nonsense from the 3D printer. You can argue about the usefulness and usability, but for example you can't discuss away some practical kitchen helpers.

What can you do if you want to prepare Wiener Schnitzel, for example, but the wooden meat tenderizer has just separated from its handle? 😀 These and other great and useful things from the 3D printer I would like to introduce here.

Useful things from the 3D printer - kitchen gadgets and toys for children

amz box en.jpgAs already mentioned above there are some practical kitchen helpers who unfortunately sometimes break down. Or what to do if you can't get any nice ice balls for dessert without an ice spoon. Of course you could just buy everything new, but where would the fun go?! And the domestic 3D printer needs work, because otherwise it's only a dust catcher in the study in the corner, and PLA Filament PLA Filament is not durable forever. 🙂

In addition, children's toys from the 3D printer are also a welcome change for the kids from time to time.

If you still need help to make a decision when buying a 3D printer, you can find out here which features you should pay attention to when buying: 3D printers: models, software and possibilities!

3D printing: Print meat tenderizer yourself

meat tenderizer from 3d printerSince the days my meat tenderizer dissolved into its components and the schnitzels did not want to knock themselves, I used a frying pan to flatten the meat. In the evening with full stomach I had the idea to print out a replacement.

The knocker may not be the optical bringer, even if you print it in Rainbow-PLA Rainbow-PLA. It could also be a bit heavier, or have more mass in the head, but the meat tenderizer meat tenderizer fully serves its purpose and I am very satisfied with my design for this simple 3D print.

The 13 tips of the hammer head drill themselves wonderfully into the meat with every stroke and make the meat beautiful tender. 😉 It was printed with yellow PLA filament with a layer thickness of 0,3mm. A fast and solid solution. Download link can be found below in this article, who would like to print this work of art as well.

3D print: Ice spoon for beautiful round ice balls

ice cream spoon from 3d printerFor dessert, vanilla ice cream, hot cherries and a dash of cream. If there is no ice cream spoon ice cream spoon at hand, or if you can't find it right now, you just have to improvise.

A quick 3D print is not a very good idea either, because the ice must have melted before the 3D printer 3D printer even started and did the printing. Alternatively guests and e.g. their own children don't want to wait 20 minutes for their ice cream. Everyday problems! 😉

Nevertheless, at this point I do not want to withhold from the world my design of an ice cream spoon. It was printed with simple PLA filament in color orange. Layer thickness 0.3mm to speed up the 3D printing. If you like, you can download the ice cream spoon together with the meat tenderizer in STL format for printing yourself here.

3D printing: Children's toys - screw toy

children screw toy from 3d printer3D printing children's toy is only one of many applications where a 3D printer can show what it is capable of. At thingiverse I once again came across a great piece, which I printed out right away: Screw play / Screw Toy! It was printed with PLA in blue, green and orange.

Even if you set the layer thickness from 0.2mm to 0.3mm and 20% infill to accelerate the print, the screws fit really well and can be turned smoothly in and out.

There is a container in which you can store the screws and nuts, as well as screw in the screws. Screws, nuts and holes in the cylinder are available in three different sizes. A colourful funny toy for the children who have a lot of fun screwing the screws in and out. Preferably by hand, but also with a spanner from the tool box set for children tool box set for children.
