With a host of new 3D printers in the Maker Shed, we thought we’d share some cool ideas for things YOU can 3D print to make your summer the best ever! We love the cutting-edge Felix 3.0, affordable and reworked Printrbot Simple Metal (check out our blog post on it here!), and the newest from MakerBot, the 5th Generation Replicator! Though these are some of our favorites, you can check out our entire selection of machines, filament, and accessories here.

What will you do with your new printer? With summer upon us, there are loads of options for printable objects that are useful, stylish, or just plain fun!
