Top 10 Back-to-School Tools You Can Download and 3D Print
Summer is ending, and it’s time to go back to your classroom. The good news is that looking at this list of great back-to-school models to print in 3D, even I am considering returning to my student days or at least printing half of these supplies for my desk!
1) Pencil Extender
At some point, a pencil gets so small that it’s almost impossible to use. But no matter how difficult it is to grab an old crayon, you don’t want to waste it until it evaporates in the cosmos. Is that the case? Well, this extender will become part of your daily life, so you never put aside those mini pencils, especially if you are an artist, I’m sure that you will love it.

4) Arm-shaped hook
Download the hook in the shape of the arm. You can hang the backpack at your desk. Also, It is possible to hang the key or the cap on top of the hook. Don’t you think this design looks like strong? WallTosh prepared two types of thicknesses 20mm and 30mm. Source: Pinshape.
5) All-In-One Case
The challenge for MattParrish was to design a set of three 3D printable school supplies: a pencil case, a ruler, and a pencil topper. Going above and beyond he precisely formulated a revolutionary design that utilizes a portable, open, self-contained package. The design works to provide secure and immediate access to the necessary supplies. Included in this innovative design is the option of easily securing the holder to the standard three-ring binder allowing for ease of transport and assurance that you will have the necessaries (protractor, ruler, flash drives, pencils, and my own ez-grip toppers) at all times. From the standpoint of the user personalization is an option, for example, school logos, sports associations, etc. Source: Thingiverse.

10) 3D printed articulating LED lamp
Having good lighting at your desk or at a reading location is essential for your visual comfort and the health of your eyes. Although, it is not always possible to find a lamp of your liking, or that does not occupy much space on your desk, limiting your work area. In project, igorF2 made a 3D printed articulating lamp, which can be configured according to your needs.
Possibly the final product will be more expensive than ordinary lamps that you will find in stores. But none will be configurable like this, nor will will let you be proud to say that you did it by yourself! If you have a 3D printer or have access to one in your hacker/maker space, this is an interesting and useful project to equip your workshop and practice your 3D printing and modeling skills.
