3D Printing is continuing to become more accessible to use on the manufacturing floor to on a desk. With Father’s day right around the corner. I chose to highlight a mix of practical and cool looking 3D prints for you to show your appreciation via 3D printing!
Paper Coffee Cup Grip or Handle
Whether you are holding a hot beverage or a cold one, a drink handle can be a handy tool to give your dad. You can size multiple handles based on specific drinkware he owns or average consumer containers!
Vintage Hand Drill
Spice up your dad’s tool arsenal with a old school piece of tech printed with high tech! You might have to experiment with materials, infills, and maybe even substituting 3d parts out to have the drill work properly. However even if it ends up not working for every job, this drill is still a cool piece of equipment to have.
TOBi Racing F1 2022
Formula 1 is actually having its 9th round of racing in Canada this Father’s Day! Printing out a Formula 1 race car or just your dad’s favorite car can make a fine addition to his office, shop, or home. Pair that with a drink and watching the race and you two have a recipe for an awesome afternoon.
It’s an understate gift but printing a custom picture frame and slotting in your favorite moment with your dad can mean the world to him. Having those memories for everyone to see would make for a perfect gift for a guy who may not ask for much.
If your dad goes golfing and has a habit of losing his golf balls, printing some could be worth it if you made them just for him. Getting it to perform like a regular golf ball may be a struggle. You could go the other way and mess with things like the weight and dimensions to make joke golf balls to spice up 9 holes. Just make sure you have some normal ones.
