3D Printed Google Cardboard keychain

There are so many useful things you can do with a 3D Printer - yet I keep finding myself wanting to make useless but creative 3D Product logos... I've done Google Sheets, Docs, Slides, Forms, Classroom, Forms, Google Drive, even Gmail. I've even posted the models at that link so people can print these for themselves.

This week, inspired by our recent announcement of Expeditions, I decided on a whim to do a miniature rendering of Google Cardboard.

I actually started this 3D Model as a possible working Cardboard unit, but decided to first try it in miniature to make sure the relative dimensions were close to accurate. Once I shrunk it down, I couldn't help but add a keychain hole and make it just a trinket to give to friends and others who work on the Cardboard team. It's tiny and super cute.

Keep an eye out for a working model soon(ish). I'm sure I'll get to that eventually, and it's much more of a challenge than the keychain trinket version. But if you see me this week at the ISTE Education Conference, I can show you the keychain version in person.

  1. Do you mind sharing the file for this mini keychain version? Our librarian was able to get our school to participate in the Google Expeditions Beta this year. I would love to make her one of these as a surprise. Thanks!
