Level Up Your Summer with TheseCreative 3D Printed Gadgets

Summer is here, and what better way to enjoy the warm summer weather than by relaxing in the sun and enjoying all the outdoor activities suitable weather calls us to? But just because you're having fun in the sun doesn't mean your 3D printer has to gather dust inside! Instead, you can use your 3D printing skills to create fun, practical gadgets to enhance outdoor activities. Here are just a few ideas to get you started.




Creative Bottle Opener

Sure, you could go buy a plain old bottle opener, but where's the fun in that? So instead, use your 3D printer to create a custom bottle opener that reflects your personality and style. For example, you could create a bottle opener in the shape of a favorite sports team logo, a quirky animal, or even a favorite cartoon character. The possibilities are endless, and the result is a unique and personalized accessory that will surely be a hit at your next party.


Custom Sand Tools and Toys

If you plan to spend time at the beach this summer, a 3D-printed sandcastle mold is a must-have. Instead of relying on flimsy plastic molds that never quite work the way you want, you can create custom molds that allow you to build the sandcastle of your dreams. Imagination is your only limit, from turrets and towers to moats and drawbridges. Even a simple mold and shovel can be customized to your liking and is a fun addition to any beach vacation.

Water Guns

For those hot summer days when you need to cool off, a 3D-printed water gun is a playful way to stay refreshed. You can create a water gun in any shape or size, from a classic pistol to a futuristic blaster. And if you really want to up the ante, you can create a water gun that attaches to your garden hose for maximum soaking power.


Wasp Trap

Nothing ruins a summer BBQ faster than a swarm of wasps. But rather than resorting to chemical sprays or sticky traps, you can use your 3D printer to create a more natural solution. A wasp trap made from a 3D-printed funnel and a jar filled with sugary liquid is an effective and eco-friendly way to keep wasps at bay. And the best part? You can customize the design to mainly) selectively attract and trap harmful wasps rather than insects in general. Most insects and bees are essential to the ecosystem, and we certainly don't want to harm them! Instead, try to use bait such as beer that isn't attractive to honey bees.





There's no limit to what you can create with a bit of imagination and a 3D printer. Why not add some extra fun to your summer this year by getting started on your next 3D printing project? Comment below and let us know what you will be printing this summer!
