A skate transformed into a bench

Skate seat

Between Louis-Philippe and his skateboard, it's a love story, a page of his life, that of his adolescence. The time of friends. For this young designer, there is no question of throwing this board of memories. With a good dose of imagination, and some notions of modeling, Louis-Philippe managed to divert the primary function of the object, just to give it a second life.

Skate transformed into a seat

To transform his skate into a small bench, he creates two custom pieces that he prints in 3D. These parts are similar to the trucks, these parts screwed on the board where the wheels are clipped. With one difference! The designer has two holes (Ø 23 mm) in each plastic room where two wooden legs will fit together.
Hardware side, the designer needs to four pieces of broomstick (35 cm long), 8 bolts and nuts, four screws, a screwdriver and a wrench. Bolts and nuts are used to fix on the board the printed part in which the pieces of broom will be inserted.
On modeling software, only one file is needed for both parts. The printing lasts between eight and nine o'clock.
Sitting or standing on his board, Louis-Philippe tests the resistance and stability of his new seat. The whole thing works like clockwork.

The required filament length is about 26 meters. A screw 3 cm in diameter will be sufficient to hang this luminaire on the wall or on another support. Patience on the other hand to get the finished piece because the printing time is estimated at a little over twelve hours.

A bottle rack design

Bottle holder

This bottle rack defies the laws of physics. It is thanks to the counterweight created by the bottle that the support plays its role. Original, this stylish and stylish object is printed in 3D for the modest sum of 3 €. Ideal for decorating a table, or to sit in the kitchen. This model needs at least 23 meters of filament. The printing lasts a little over four hours. A single file is enough to create the part that does not require any support. On the other hand, the complexity of the forms makes that no painting can be applied, at the risk that it is not uniform. The designer recommends choosing a filament color beforehand to print the model from the beginning in the desired color.

Practical Towel Rack

Practical towel holder

System D elected him for his workshop section. Designed for the bathroom or the kitchen, this towel rack will find its place in the heart of a DIY space. And will probably be very handy at hand.
Rather original with a very simple operation, the structure is composed of two pieces, the bearing and the ball. Side operation, just mount the ball, place the laundry, let fall the ball. And it's done.The printing time is estimated at two hours for the two modeled files: the hook and the ball. The fill rate of the ball is set at 100% to be quite heavy.
On the slicing software, it will probably be necessary to add supports to the ball.
The size of the structure can be modified at will according to the needs. Of course, a small towel will not require the same resistance as a large bath towel. Vary the colors so that the support is as decorative as useful.
