In a failed attempt to create a copy of a famous Danish building brick, I decided to give it a twist - and voila! A fun set of earrings!
(Or you could say "Screw it!" - so I did)
Update: Added better support for the knobs and fixed a possibly broken STL file.


Print at fine resolution, use a sharp object to clean it up. I have printed it with a Replicator 2 at 0.1 mm resolution, 100% infill and 1 shell. Each ear ring took about 45 minutes to print.

Great model!

I just got a .15mm nozzle and this is the perfect model for that, however I can clearly see the individual triangles on the side. Do you have a smoothed model or even an stp file by any chance?


That's so cool! I am printing some of those right now!

I can't seem to get the three tubes on the inside printed without significant distortion. Any advice?

Simple twist turned something common and dumb into something GREAT. Really cool idea. I love these.

why is this featured? Lego brick, twisted with a hook on it, how is this innovative?

I guess people like this more than smoking bunnies

Smoking Bunny (not Kozik)

This was featured because some people (including me) think it's awesome. To your second question, it is innovative because OP turned a lego into earings with some flare.

course it's just a funny... twist ;)

What is the point of making a twisted Lego...

Will they fit together?

It is an earing, you wear it.

Just because she can?
What is the point of your comment...
Will if fit within this discussion?

I made those and people thought they were AWESOME!!!!!

Like a regular LEGO wasn't painful enough to step on. ;)

Thanks for making my day :))

To make a pair, does it make sense to print one normal, and one mirrored?

Absolutely! I have chosen not mirror to so far to show a little more of the reverse side of the brick.
