above: I designed and made this Alphorn pen and stand. The bell of the horn is the pencap.
The finished painted version may be seen below.

Here is a gallery of 3D Printing projects, made using Fusion 360, Tinkercad, Prusaslicer, and printed on a Prusa i3 MK3S printer.
I will post objects that I print, starting with the most recent prints and going back to my first print. The gfiles below were generated on PrusaSlicer and were generated with the intent to be printed on my Prusa i3MK3S with 0.4mm nozzle, I can't guarantee they will work on your printer or with your filament. I use Prusament Filament.
3D Printed Tiaras! These were a hit with my daughters. Designed on Fusion 360, sliced with Prusa Slicer, PETG .10 quality, no supports. Rustoleum Metallic Gloss Gold Spray paint.
Castle Tower, designed by my daughter on tinkercad, printed in PLA on the Prusa i3 MK3S at .20 quality. Nice work Lilly!
3D Printed Christmas Card Holders: Designed on Fusion 360, printed on Prusa i3 MK3S, Prusament PLA, 15% infill, .15mm quality
3D Printed Girl Scout Keychain project: Fun project for daughters Girl Scout Troop. Printed with the troop number on it. Designed on Fusion 360, printed on Prusa i3 MK3S, Prusament PLA, 100% infill. See how the hole isn’t round!? That is from a cog-belt on the Y-Axis of my printer. I retightened the belt and solved this going forward.
Heres the stl file for this Girl Scout Trefoil / Girl Scout Emblem. I scaled it down quite a bit in the slicer prior to printing.
3D Printed Gramaphone Style Stand for Mobile Phone; Designed on Fusion 360, Printed on Prusa i3 MK3S in PLA. The stand features passages that are aligned with the phones speakers and that connect to the large horn. There is a separate hole in the stand for the power plug into the phone. Spray painted finish.
3D Printed Stump Shear, I printed this for someone at work. I got the autodesk 3D file and sliced it on PrusaSlicer and printed it on the Prusa i3MK3S in PLA. Spray painted yellow. It is printed in two main parts which printed with lots of supports, the grey pins are unpainted grey PLA. The shear opens and closes.
3D Printed Combs, various shapes and sizes! Printed in PLA and PETG (keep in mind PLA is not waterproof in the long run). Designed on Fusion 360, printed on Prusa i3MK3.
Modern Switch Plate with Old Fashion Switches. Designed on Fusion 360, printed in Prusament PETG on the Pusa i3MK3S. Sliced with Prusa Slicer. The plate consist of a face plate and separate outer trim piece. The switche handles are made of three pieces glued together: swicth handle, handle shaft and knob. Spray painted with gloss metallic Rustoleum.
Watering Can: At the time of printing this was the largest object , after assembly, that I had made. It is 40cm long by 25cm tall. I printed it in pieces and glued the pieces together. The handle is solid PETG and the rest is Solid PLA except the main tub which I think is 60% infill. I sprayed all the PLA pieces with 2 coats of clear acrylic automotive laquer prior to assembling the pieces, to water proof them; we will see if that works.
3d Printed Roman Amphora Model and Stand: Drawn on Fusion 360, Prusa Slicer 60% infill. Amphora is Terracotta color Prusament PETG, the stand is PLA painted with hammered metal Rustoleum Spray Paint. To avoid excessive support printing, the stand is printed in pieces and glued together.
3D Printed Music Room Model: We are looking at adding a baby grand piano and are not sure how to arrange the room. I printed up the room, our furniture, and the piano we are looking at. The furniture is all printed separately so it can be rearranged aroudn to see how we want to arrange the furniture in the room. My wife had asked for a sketch, but this is a better way to visualize the space!
3D Printed Clamp for aligning laminations of the shaft of a paddle for Stand Up Paddleboarding: This fixed-jaw clamp will be used to ensure laminations of the long handle on a SUP paddle stay aligned during the glue-up process. Made for aligning laminations on 1.25" x 1.125" paddle shafts. Designed on Fusion 360, sliced on PrusaSlicr, 50% infill, Prusament PETG.
3D Printed Big Ghost: My daughter found this ghost on Thingiverse and first printed the little one seen further below. Then we printed this 8" (20cm) tall version. We printed this in PLA at 15% infill at .15quality and it took about 25hrs.
3D Printed Little Ghost: My daughter found this on Thingiverse and wanted it for Halloween. Printed in grey PLA and spray painted white, 2.5" tall.
3D Printed Nefertiti Bust: stock print file that came with the printer. Printed in PLA and spray painted gold.
3D Printed Castle: Stock print file that came with the printer. Printed in Prusamanet PLA.
3D Printed Handle for Roasting Spit; Designed on Fusion 360, Printed on Prusa i3 MK3S, Prusament PETG, 50% infill, .10 quality. I made the roasting spit below in my backyard blacksmith shop. The PETG has held up well against the temperature from the coals in this application.
3D Printed Filament Scrap Bin: PLA 100% infill .20 speed. I wanted a container small enough to put on the desk, that I could put scrap filament and scrap supports in. This is 80mm diameter and 90mm tall and has a removable top.
Clampy McClamperson! 3D Printed C Clamps. PETG 100% infill , .07 ultradetail. After printing the threaded parts, they must be chased with taps and dies. I designed 3 sizes. I designed these clamps be able to be self supporting on all sides (except the side that the threaded rod comes out of). I printed the threaded rods of these clamps horizontally so that the laminations ran the length of the threaded rod. Then I trimmed and chased the interior and exterior threads with taps and dies; cutting oil was needed to avoid snapping the rods during the chasing of the OD threads.
A tap and die for M9x1.25 thread are needed to complete the clamp using the print files below:
3D Printed Oktoberfest Pretzel Pins, for lapels or a hat. These were fun to make. The metal pin and rubber pin-back are from Amazon and I glued them to the pretzel with Devcon Weld-It clear adhesive. I made a little pretzel shaped box for them also, and brought them to an Oktoberfest Party (outside party and because it's 2020 I had the 'ole canister of sanitizer for people to use before grabbing a pin).
3D Benchy, I decided to print some objects that I did not design, including this little boat.
3D Printed Play Tea Pot, 8mm long, designed on Fusion 360 by my 12 year old.
Tea Pot, design in Fusion 360, Prusaslicer, Prusament PLA, 50% infill, .07mm detail. My 8 year old arrived at the printer and accelerated the print speed a couple times during printing which changed the look of the print. In these sections she sped it up to as high as 600% print speed, and when I caught this I returned it to 100%. This is a hollow tea pot, with hollow spout, function for play. The photo is of the parts with no sanding or finishing afgter printing.
Dress Shop, called "Shine" , designed by my 8 year old. The clothes rack rod is metal, I added that to the model after it printed.
3D Printed Alphorn Pen with Stand. I built and play an actual alphorn, build log here. And I wanted to design and print one. The real alphorn is 12' 6" long, the pen is 1/14 scale. The pen is printed in 3 pieces: Cap, tip, and body. The tip threads onto the body to hold the ink cartidge (Caran d'Ache Goliath refill). The stand is printed in 1 piece.
3D Printed Anvil. Scale replica of my Kanca anvil. You can check out my blacksmithing page here
3D Printed Smoke Detector Spacer Ring. Used to provide space for wires when mounting the smoke detector under a shelf above my printer. There is a small notch for the wires to exit the ring.
3D Printed Soap Dish
3D Printed Bison Cookie Cutter
Bison cookie cutter. Designed on Fusion 360, printed with Prusament PLA filament, 100% infill, .07 detail. We drove to Custer State Park in South Dakota this year and saw huge herds of these majestic animals. This is the first self-designed object I printed and it was a nice simple print to start with.
Prusa name tag , 1st test print after assembling the printer.
