30 Coolest Things People 3D Printed

Published 5 years ago

Here’s an interesting fact you probably did not know – 3D printing is actually almost 40 years old! The first prototype 3D printer was invented all the way back in the 80s and as technology advanced and the prices of printers dropped, they started becoming available to more and more people. That led to users getting creative with this new technology, coming up with unique and ingenious creations that wouldn’t be possible to create using conventional methods.

Casts, rims and even full-size houses – check out the most interesting things people created using 3D printers in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
