Let’s find out how your resin 3D printer can bring your favorite 3D printing projects to life:


3D Printed Tablet Holder

When purchasing a new tablet or smartphone, they don’t normally come with a stand. Even now, brands like Apple opt to remove the charger, but that’s a whole ‘nother topic . So, what should we do if we just want to relax and watch YouTube on our tablets?

Unlike a laptop, tablets don’t have a base, so it needs something sturdy to lean on. Sometimes, the tablet may slip or slide, which means you need to reposition it again and again.

One solution is to purchase a tablet holder, or better yet, look for a 3D printed design of a tablet holder yourself! If you own a resin 3D printer just like the Sonic Mighty 4K, you can just print a tablet holder for yourself. You can either download files of 3D printing models online or model one by using software such as Blender or 3Ds Max. There’s a large variety of 3D modeling software out there for resin 3D printing.

For beginners in 3D printing, this is a great project to start with. It’s a simple resin printing project that you can create without the need of setting any supports in the slicer software.


3D Printed DIY Amplifier

Smartphones have limited range when it comes to their audio. With low-end smartphone models, they echo a lot, or the volume simply isn’t loud enough. Of course, if you happen to be watching a movie with a low volume, then getting an amplified speaker may be your only choice. But what if there is a more portable way to do it, as those things tend to be bulky or inconvenient at times.

Did you know that resin 3D printing models of speaker amplifiers exist? This 3D printed model can act as an amplifier and a phone stand at the same time. It is definitely worth trying, especially if you want to create to take advantage of the smooth finish you find in resin 3D printing.

3D Printed DIY Earphone Organizer

Judging by the size of this particular 3D printed design, it can fit in one’s pocket or side pocket, so you’ll never have to worry about entanglement issues again.

3D Printed USB Holder

USB holders, we need them, and we love them. If you have a collection of flash drives or SD Cards, one of the problems that come with having too many is the potential to misplace them. While the hardware costs some money, the data stored inside them is far more important and valuable than the USBs itself. Sure, we can just chuck these into a drawer.. BUT that’s just a waste of a good drawer. When looking for your USBs, you’ll really have to dig through the entire drawer.

This 3D printing model is a great way to find the USB you’re looking for when you need it. Just plop the USB holder between you and your monitor, and you’re good to go.

For that, resin 3D printing is the way to ensure that the USB drive aligns exactly with the USB holder.

If this is something that concerns you, a resin printer is going to be the best tool for the job because you can get accurate prints down to the millimeter. You should definitely try out 3D printed designs such as these so that you can store your USBs with ease.
