IC3D’s 2nd Annual 3D Printed Toys for Tots Campaign

In 2018 – IC3D launched 3D Printed Toys for Tots. Working with a handful of “3D Printer Elves,” and IC3D donated filament, the 3D printing community across several states made 150 toys that were distributed by U.S. Marines to children in need.  This year, IC3D has leveled up that initial effort. Recruiting throughout the year at various events, 27 Printer Elves have gone above and beyond to make this year’s toy drive 10 times bigger.

27 Printer Elves. 50 Spools of Filament. 1,400 toys!

This year, our printer elves include school clubs, 3D Printing Youtubers, businesses, and individual 3D Printing enthusiasts. IC3D contacted two popular designers from Thingiverse.com: Agepbiz and McGybeer for permission to use their incredible articulated designs. The designs include a shark, a gecko, an octopus, and a fire truck. Enjoy the pictures below, and think about how you’d like to spread 3D Printed joy next year!

A huge thanks to all of our Printer Elves!
