Zookins - Animal Napkin Rings by gwygonik Sep 28, 2012

Featured Thing!

Description

There once was a time when companies produced animal napkin rings using a plastic called Bakelite. Those vintage napkin rings can go for a decent price these days in antique stores. But there's no reason you can't design and 3D print your own versions! :-)

That would be awesome! Or a yam or regular potato... Do let us know how it turns out.
My wife suggested me to use carrots as the engraving raw materials. If succeeded, I'll let you know.

Instructions

3D print and put a napkin in them! Stand them on your table! Play!

Then - design your own!

Start with a 36mm diameter circle, make another, larger circle outside it, then remove the inner circle; instant ring! Extend out from the outer circle to make animal shapes, sprocket shapes, cars, planes, or anything you can think of.

When ready, extrude the whole thing 10mm, print on your 3D printer (I used 25% infill with 0 [zero] extra shells).
Thank you.

Very nice, I need to add a cat version, print a whole set for my sister - she will love it!
Ooooo - a cat! Yes, please :-)
Thanks for sharing these models. They're super cute.

I printed them with a Lulzbot AO-100 and ABS filament, using standard settings.
