3D Printed Home Decor – DIY Room Decor Idea #4: Holo Clock

3D Printed Home Decor – DIY Room Decor Idea #11: Wireframe Skull Pencil Holder
Another challenging model for your 3D printer, this Wireframe Skull is made from a curving grid of squares. Suggested uses are for holding pencils and pencils, but we’d probably use it as a place to store our marbles. We’re funny like that.

Another skull for room decor ideas? Trust us, we’re not trying to be morbid. It’s simply that the effect of light passing through the Voronoi design is really rather striking. Plus, if human craniums really aren’t your thing, the same designer has other variations in this style.
3D Printed Home Decor – DIY Room Decor Idea #23: Structure Clock
The beauty of this clock is that you can use it to show off the intricate infill designs offered by your slicing software.
