3D Printed Custom Cannabis Gear Showcase: 3D Printing On Weed

3D Printing Is Finally Accessible To The Stoner Masses & #dailydabbers!

Enail Dab Kits Made In The USA

In 2019 3D printing has finally drifted down from it’s lofty, techie status to become affordable to the masses. I’ll bet you didn’t know that a 3D printer in 2020 can cost you less than your daily cup of coffee! I got mine for just over $200, and it’s worked pretty well for over a year. Plus, that wasn’t even the cheapest. You can go as low as $140-ish, plus PayPal now offers financing thru eBay for 6 months until they start to get you on the interest! 

I can’t say that there hasn’t been some hiccups with the printer I chose; but that’s to be expected with just about any moderately priced unit on the market currently.

Leveling The Playing Field

3D printing  has come a long way in the past five years — not only in price but also in capabilities. Projections indicate an even larger leap for the next five years! This next wave could even touch the greater manufacturing sector and larger marketplaces such as Amazon. Sooner than you think, Prime might be scrambling to provide ready-to-print files as customers demand to be able to start creating their orders now instead of waiting to be mailed. When manufacturing at home, one wouldn’t ever question the quality of  the materials or construction.

Existing sites such as Thingiverse are expanding their offerings of creative commons files by the week; with most files being print-able without any 3D modeling experience. Several small and large companies  in the cannabis industry have incorporated 3D printing into their own product lines. Check out some of the best 2020 developments in small run customized and localized FDM manufacturing as it applies to us dabbers and stoners…

3D Printed Bongs And Rigs

Perhaps some of the most impressive #stonerengineering on this list have to be these concept bongs by Printabowl. Aside from the interesting geometric forms, this is one of the most impressive due to the way they are made. Instead of 3D printing the water pipe itself, they use their 3D printer  to print the mold rather than using it for the finished part. 

The mold is made into a cast with plaster, filled with a clay-like substance, and placed into a fiery kiln until the final ceramic piece emerges from the ashes. 

Ceramic is much stronger than a typical 3D printed plastic part, and can be produced a lot faster than FDM 3D printing. 

3D Printed Bongs And Rigs

Another impressive piece of #stonerengineering is this mini rig by Kayd Made. It features a bottom and top cap both impressively constructed using 3D printing technology. The only part that’s glass are the clear parts (including a down stem hidden from view).

3D Printed Bongs And Rigs

I think my favorirte from them is their Giza Rig Series>

3D Printed Vape Mods

If you’ve even dipped your toes in the vast oceans of the vape juice scene, you know there are as many options for mods as there are flavors of juices! Some high end 3D printed mods can cost hundreds of dollars due to the care and time it can take to design and craft a beautiful and functional 3D printed object. 

3D Printed Vape Mods

Fortunately, you can find and print some of these files yourself if you can’t afford the one you want. and even make your own DIY 3D printed vape for less than $15!

#Rosintech

Although we haven’t seen any 3D printed rosin plates for pressing so far, there are options for pre-presses with our 3D printed rosin puck molds. RCCtools offers a custom option to add your logo or artwork to your flower puck maker. 

3D Printed Dab Stations, Caddies, etc.

Having a good dab caddy to hold your q-tips and dab accessories is essential. No one likes trying to find a capper or qtip in the midst of it all.  I find that keeping it all in one spot helps out in keeping the banger tipped regularly. 

RCCtools regularly designs and re-designs tool holders to make the perfect fit for various dab station setups and tool combinations…here are a few of the latest pictured to the left or above (depending if you’re on a desktop or mobile).

There are also so many awesome examples! Here is a highlight of some of the best I’ve found for the cost and/or your own inspiration at home!

RFLDFTHRS Black Dichro All-in-one Station

This gorgeous pearlescent cobalt print pops in the sun and helps you catch the temperature of a cooling banger. This device can prove especially handy when dabbing out in the great outdoors while camping or hiking away from electricity. Apparently it comes with a thermocouple probe that plugs into the front and probes the temperature of the quartz banger.

Zabo Designs

Even though the Zabo designs Etsy shop says it was just opened in 2019, they already have stepped up their game with color changing filament. They obviously also have some nice 3D printing chops and and eye for design…

Mega Combo Station by Glob Mob

Glob Mob USA has some of the cleanest looking and most functional dab tool holders that I’ve found so far. They have some really nice touches with the multi-colored and prints and use of secondary materials such as silicone.

Mini Desktop Dumpster By 710PrintFarm

This desktop dumpster only hold q-tips; but it fits right in any back alley or corner of your dab station. If you use a dedicated holder for the spent qtips it makes it easier to dump it ninja-quick!

Dabfish Puffo Peak Caddy

Dabfish has some pretty great designs and looks to be one of the most established players in the dab station game so far. Their Instagram has some of the best photos of their gear; such as this Puffco Peak caddy.

Dabfish MEGA DAB CADDY

The Mega Dab Caddy by Dabfish is one of the most simple but solid designs to hold just about as many tools and nails one could ever need. It comes in a variety of colors available on their website.

Dabfish Huni Badger Stand

OK one more from Dabfish, not only because they are killing it on the 3D printed stands; but their name sounds like the Sublime song (:

This time it’s the Huni Badger stand. The device looks to be a type of electric nectar collector with a ceramic tip. Looks interesting and a lot like the Greenlight Vapes “GDIP”.

KaddysCo Dab Wand Vape Stand

This one ties back into the previous vape gear section, with it’s dedicated spot for an ePen cart. The other sections look a little bit more generic and possibly an awkward fit, but since it’s custom made, you might be able to get one that’s a bit taller or wider for your needs if you contact them! 

GlobMobUSA Quad-Tiered Dab Tool Rack

Another goodie by GlobMobUSA: this sleek dabber tool rack looks to be made for those who come prepared for any situation with any type of concentrate…any day! Keep your sauce, wax, and shatter tools all in one convenient spot next to one of the other stand to hold the  rest of your dab accessories.

Blazer Big Shot

The Blazer Big Shot 3D Printed Dab Station is another simple yet solid design that incorporates the ever-important timer into a torch-based dab station. It looks like it even has a spot for a dabber tool in front. Upon first glance this looks like it’s in a bad spot – blocking button access – but not after you consider that you would have the dabber in your hand at that point.

RFLDFTHRS Cobalt Rechargeable Temperature Gauge

This gorgeous pearlescent cobalt print pops in the sun and helps you catch the temperature of a cooling banger. This device can prove especially handy when dabbing out in the great outdoors while camping or hiking away from electricity. Apparently it comes with a thermocouple probe that plugs into the front and probes the temperature of the quartz banger.

Dabvac

This interesting device was first spotted years ago; but alas, I never got to try it out. If you have this and love it, please leave a comment or contact. The part that is 3D printed is the joint adapter that connects the glass dish to the hose.

 I feel like the heat would melt the plastic just a little too much, but I’ve never tried it so what do I really know? Cool idea, at least!

710Printing

710printing was one of the first few that I spotted out there on Instagram 3D printing dab accessories. Although they mostly feature figures such as super hero busts and such, you can scroll through the earlier posts and find some pretty swank-dank gear!

RCCtools 3D Printed Electronic Nail Cases

I dove in and started offering 3D printing customized 3D printed controllers in 2019 when a customer asked for a custom Roger The Alien enail. It’s always fun to find new case possibilities and see how far the limits of can be pushed on the spacing for the electronics in each different situation. Although takes quite a while for each piece to design and wait for it to print; but it’s usually well-worth it! There are literally mushrooms that grow faster than a lot of 3D prints. Fun fact!

NOTE: These last examples might be getting "into the weeds" a bit, but I think you may still be interested to check out:

3D Printed Custom Cannabis Gear Showcase: 3D Printing On Weed

[If you have a 3D printer and an office chair, you should probably print this one immediately!]

OK, Everyone Needs This One At Some Point Whether You Dab Or Not!

This is the most handy and helpful 3D printed “hack” that I’ve found so far. It’s not dab related, but if you’re reading this there’s about an 85% chance you are sitting on a computer chair. There’s another 85% chance that your computer chair will start sinking eventually, as the hydraulic seals wear out and start leaking air. This is the most annoying thing. As a tall person it’s basically intolerable, so I found the perfect fix for my office chair on Thingiverse. I printed it, and slapped the sucker on with some wire ties as instructed. Carpe diem! No more sinking office chair.

The Future Is Bright...

Right now it’s a bit of a clunky process to find exactly what you need, get the print settings right, make sure the printer is physically in order, etc. Limits on materials that most affordable printers are able to use also is a factor in what can currently be made at home.

However, with advancements in 3D printed housing, organs, medicine, and food, it’s logical to imagine a future where a small business or even a household might own multiple types of 3D printers in order to fullfill most of their material needs.

Localized manufacturing could minimize social, economical, political, and/or environmental impact of global trade. What’s more, is the impact on the labor force, which has good and bad implications. Robots could either relieve us of more burdensome labor or greatly restrict the ways in which one may produce value for society. Not only that, but robot labor will most likely shift the dynamics of world trade to a more localized manufacturing model that reduces the need to ship certain goods across long distances. Combined with AI and quantuum computing, the future could be very bright for 3D printing in so many ways…It’s definitely one of those things that will leave your #mindblown!
