Practical Magic

Our 3D Printers are tremendously practical devices, capable of making many of the things we would normally go out and buy. Take the shower head for example, in a DIY store we may get to choose from 3 or 4 shower head designs, available in white possibly silver.

We’ll now you can choose from many of the designs on Thingiverse or create an entirely new design yourself.

Why not 3D Print your shower head to match your latest colour scheme.

We’ve printed a few shower heads for you but would like to see what other household items you can come up with, the challenge is on!

Oh and please remember to ask yourself this question the next time your in a DIY Superstore, ‘Do I need to buy this or is this something I can 3D Print myself?

P.S. Now, is it a blue shower head day today or a red one? We’ve got to be the first to ask this question, which means either we’ve created a new ‘trend’ in Colour matched mood enhancing shower heads or there’s something more fundamental going on.

Of course, you could retweet Practical Magic and find out!

No assembly required!

3D Printing will enable us to print complex pre-assembled products in the not too distant future. These working wrenches, hot off our printer, need no assembly and demonstrate the potential of this World changing technology.
