We’ve taken a look at some of the most interesting CAD designs across the web and put together a Christmas wish list. From 3D jewellery to the clever Handibot, here’s the products that we hope to get in our stockings this year.

Tickets to Autodesk’s design gallery

Autodesk, San Francisco is exhibiting a rotating gallery of 20 of its most impressive. It showcases the programme’s capabilities including the plans for some of the world’s most major buildings and scientific breakthroughs such as scale models of molecules. You can also see a giant dinosaur made completely from Lego. For tickets, head to the AutoDesk gallery here.

3D printed Jewellery

3d printed jewellery

3D jewellery design has made a huge impact on the fashion industry and it’s easy to see why with results this intricate. Style Shapes takes all of the best examples from the web and collects them together for the easiest shopping experience.  If 3D is your thing, this is the place to go.


Create your own designs in 3D

If you’d rather create your own designs than buy someone else’s, Shapeways can help. From ornaments and mosaic eggs to toys and homeware, you can use it to make just about anything. Simply upload your design, choose the materials you wish to use and then wait for it to be made and delivered to you. You can even make use of their multicolor 3D printing facilities to create some truly unique designs.
