When it comes to buying gifts, most men are easy to please. However, if you are running out of ideas this holiday season for a man – either your spouse, son, friend, boyfriend, or any man, for that matter, a 3D-printed gift might be the perfect remedy because 3D printers allow you to customize an object to match the guy’s taste.
Here are a few great ideas that you can print for a man:
Go Pro Camera Mount
If the person’s favorite hobby is taking photos or videos, you might consider getting him a specialized mount that fits up to six Go Pro cameras into an angled frame. When all of the cameras are recording at the same time, the H3PRO6 mount allows you to shoot 360-degree, fully HD videos. A guy will appreciate being able to capture home movies, extreme sports, and other adventure footage at a gorgeous resolution.
3D Phone Cases
Both men and women are constantly on their smartphones these days, but you never really see guys with specialty cases. At best, you’ll find a man housing his precious phone in an ultra-durable case that promises it’ll still work when thrown from an airplane. Do a man a favor and get him a stylish case that will also keep his phone safe. A 3D printed phone case stands out from run-of-the-mill store models because you can print them with a variety of cool textures and patterns, like volcanic rock and barracuda skin.
When in doubt, there’s always a quadcopter. This 3D-printed model copter will have any man struck with a sense of childlike wonder. The collaborative design from 3DIY and Cubify can even be printed at home with a free download. Perhaps you can leave the four-propeller vehicle unassembled when you give it as a gift, especially if he’s the kind of guy who gets joy from building things. Once you two have followed the instructions, you can take the copter for a spin and feel good about printing your presents this year.
