Inspired by "[another] M.C.Escher fish" and based on http://www.mcescher.com/gallery/symmetry/no-20-fish/ , here's a 3D-printable model. This is quite challenging to print accurately enough to tessellate multiple objects... many of mine needed some sanding or carving to make them fit. The...
#3DBenchy - The jolly 3D printing torture-test
#3DBenchy is a 3D model specifically designed for testing and benchmarking 3D printers. It is a small recognizable object that you can download for free, make and share. Please visit http://3DBenchy.com for more information. VIDEO: https://youtu.be/_epwuDI9FBI #3DBenchy

Impossible 3D-printed bolt and nut
The "Impossible bolt and nut" is an amusing 3D-printable two-part assembly with a working thread, where a nut is trapped on a bolt. The single STL file contains the nut placed at a slight distance from the bolt's head. The gap between both is sized to create a "skipped" layer thus making a fracture plane so that the nut can be removed from bolt's head. We have supplied several STL files scaled to commonly available 3D-print heights. Please choose the one that closest fits your desired print height. It is possible to scale the STL up or down with successful results. Please see...

Universal stand-alone filament spool holder
A fully 3D-printable rotating stand for filament spools, designed to be easily made without the need for fasteners such as screws, nuts, shafts, glue, etc. Every single component in this spool holder comes right from your 3D printer's filament. The spool holder's spindle is shaped to fit the vast majority of commonly used filament spools with shaft holes ranging from 16 mm to 62 mm in diameter. It is also compatible with spool-less filament coils. The spindle which holds the spool's weight rotates on its own roller wheels, which makes it turn effortlessly. The spool...
