These adorable custom game pieces were inspired by the 3D printing Easter Bilby Project, an initiative driven by @Creatrix_Britt on twitter in association with the Save the Bilby Fund to raise awareness for these endangered little marsupials in the land Down under. A project close to my heart being an Aussie myself, I knew I had to contribute!
Since the Bilby are in trouble, I thought creating a custom bilby game piece for the classic game “Trouble” made sense right? of course these cute tokens can be used in other games too from snakes and ladders to monopoly, they will make wonderful tokens and proxies.

Welcome to my Pokémon series! Kicking off with the delightfully snoozing Sandshrew, this series celebrates our favorite Pokémon characters in their most tranquil moments. This Sandshrew, curled up in peaceful slumber, is a single-piece, support-free model that’s perfect for both beginners and seasoned 3D printing enthusiasts.
But this series isn’t just about what I can create – it’s about what we can create together. That’s why I’m inviting all of you to join in this fun endeavor. Let’s turn this into a grand collaboration, with each of us designing our own sleeping Pokémon! It’s the perfect opportunity to showcase your skills and put a unique spin on your favorite Pokémon.
Ryan from Inspyr3D has already set the scene with his adorable model of the three starter Pokémon sleeping in a heap. Can you bring your own creative twist to this relaxing Pokémon theme?
Stay tuned as this series expands with more fan-favorite Pokémon and the unique contributions from our incredible community. Don’t forget to check back often for the latest additions, and please do share your creations with us!

Greetings, fellow Pokémon and 3D printing enthusiasts! Remember the rush of finding that rare Pokémon card or catching an elusive Pokémon in the wild? Well, I’ve embarked on a new journey, and I’d love for you to join me. Recently, I crafted a Sleeping Sandshrew model. A sleepy, adorable rendition of a classic Pokémon –…
The Spark: Sculptober 2022 brought an unexpected and delightful challenge my way. Amidst the creative fervour, a supporter with a decked-out Jeep Wrangler for Halloween had a special vision: a skeleton, not clutching just any item, but a rubber duck. Yet, this was no ordinary duck; it was to be a skeleton rubber duck, a playful nod to the beloved ‘Duck Duck Jeep’ trend captivating Jeep enthusiasts everywhere.
The Challenge: The idea was quirky, fun, and utterly unique, but there was a hitch – no such model existed for 3D printing. That’s where the magic of community collaboration came into play. Embracing the spirit of ‘Duck Duck Jeep’ and the joy of creation, we teamed up to bring this whimsical concept to life.
From Vision to Reality: The journey was as exciting as the idea itself. We delved into design, envisaging a rubber duck with a skeletal twist. The result? A charming, slightly eerie, and entirely enchanting skeletal rubber duck. But we didn’t stop there. Believing in the power of shared creativity, we released our quirky friend into the wild, making the model accessible to all now on thangs.com
Community Embrace: The response was nothing short of heart-warming. Our skeletal duck struck a chord, waddling its way into the hearts of many. Celebrating over 850 downloads, it became a testament to shared imagination and the wonderful unpredictability of creative endeavours.
Reflections and Invitations: This project underscored a valuable insight: personal projects, born from individual visions or suggestions, can resonate on a universal scale. It’s a reminder that in this creative space, we’re never truly alone. Our ideas, no matter how quirky, find home in the hearts of others.
To all reading this, consider it an open invitation. If you have a vision, a suggestion, or a creative itch, reach out. Let’s collaborate, laugh, and continue to populate the world with delightful models, one quirky idea at a time.
