3D Print Your Own Maker Playset

Chris Krueger designed a 3D printable maker playset.  As Chris puts it, “Sure kids could play with dinosaurs or airplanes, but why not a workbench and a 3D printer!”

I’ve been fascinated with the work from Kacie Hultgren (PrettySmallThings on Thingiverse) for awhile now. Her incredibly intricate scale model furniture designs are some of my favorite “demo prints” for friends and others interested in what can be done with 3D printers and they always get the desired “woah” response. Kacie and the recent influx of “playsets” on Thingiverse gave me the inspiration to delve into this world of miniatures and I couldn’t think of a better place to start than by modeling something I’m rather familiar with, my workshop!

Check out some more detailed photos of the playset, and compare it with a photo of his workbench (the inspiration for the playset) on his blog.
