3D Printed April Fools’ Gags

The rolling format of this blog is such that a model might slip through the cracks if you missed it the first time around, so here are three designs I did a while ago that are apropos for April Fools’ Day.

Wanna see my nose ring?

“Wanna see my nose ring?”

So begins my kids’ newest favorite gag.

You can download the STL for this model and print it yourself. Print in two pieces and then snap together. A little glue might be helpful but probably isn’t necessary.

It’s sized for an adult finger but as long as you scale the nose and the ring equally, resizing for smaller hands shouldn’t be a problem.
