New Scientist's pick of favorite 3D printed objects

5.jpeg 8.jpeg

New Scientist has picked their favourite 3D-printable objects. And I've picked out two for you from their selection.

--Above left, a water bear tardigrade toy. As NewScientist so aptly puts it, "many objects that people have created and posted online are proudly niche". Indeed.

-- Above right, New Scientist's exclusive Christmas tree ornament. "A snowflake inspired by simple fractals". What could be more perfect for all your Swedish mathematician friends?

You don't actually need access to a 3D printer to create these – you can upload the 3D design files to an online service such as Shapeways or Sculpteo. They will print and mail them to you.
