3D Printing Minecraft (tm) Tools as BackPack Charms

I found a fun model on Thingiverse.com that included 4 separate objects in one file - four Minecraft (tm) tools. The only problem I had was that, once printed, they couldn't be attached to anything. So, given that Thingiverse.com encourages "remixing" models, I pulled this one into Autodesk 123D Deisigner and punched keychain holes into the handles of the Sword, Shovel, Axe and Pickaxe.

I re-uploaded that remixed model on thingiverse - so now you can use the Diamond Minecraft Tools - Remix with Keychain Holes too :)

The original model was great - but I really wanted those keychain holes.... and it worked out.
These printed rather nicely - measuring around 4 - 4.5" (100cm) each with some nice thickness. Attached to a backpack of a 6th grader, they're impressive.

The print was a bit long - over 4 hours, which inspired another project - to attempt to print at smaller sizes just to see the impact (look for that in a later post.

Some Print Details:

Filament:  JET PLA Orange 2.75mm (actual)
Model:  Diamond Minecraft Tools Remix
Time to Print:  3 hrs 57 min.

  5. I found a fun model on Thingiverse.com that included 4 separate items in one record - four Minecraft (tm) apparatuses. The main issue I had was that, once printed, they couldn't be joined to anything. Along these lines, given that Thingiverse.com supports "remixing" models, I maneuvered this one into Autodesk 123D Deisigner and punched keychain openings into the handles of the Sword, Shovel, Ax and Pickaxe.
