Mexican Immigrant Creates a 3D Printed Donald Trump Butt Plug, Available Now for Purchase

Whether you love him or you hate him, you have to admit that Donald Trump is one controversial figure, both as a business man and as a political candidate. Many people believe that Trump’s numerous attempts at running for office are nothing more than high-profile marketing campaigns for his own brand. While he has considered running for president just about every opportunity he has had since 1988, this year seems to be the year in which he is causing the most controversy, yet he also seems to have a large following of supporters. The GOP polls were released on Friday, and to the surprise of some, Donald Trump is in a virtual tie with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush in the race for the GOP nomination.

For those of you familiar with 3D printed political satire, one man’s name stands out. That would be Fernando Sosa, an artist who is known for his own form of controversy. Sosa has created numerous 3D printed figurines which take aim at various political figures, such as Hillary Clinton, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, and Chris Christie, among many others. However, one political candidate took a bit of a personal stab at Sosa, in a recent speech that he gave. As most of us are aware, Donald Trump gave quite the inflammatory speech earlier this month, taking aim specifically at Mexicans.

“These people wreak havoc on our population,” Trump stated. “I respect Mexico greatly as a country. But the problem we have is their leaders are much sharper than ours, and they’re killing us at the border and they’re killing us on trade. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people! But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting.”

Sosa, who was born in Mexico and immigrated to the United States with his family when he was just 11 years old, took Trump’s remarks as a pretty significant personal insult.

“When I saw Trump demonized all immigrants from South America especially people from Mexico, it made my blood boil,” Sosa tells 3DPrint.com. “So I decided to let Trump jump the line on my list of 3D printed homophobes and world dictators.”

WARNING: If you are a political candidate, don’t get on Fernando Sosa’s bad side!

Sosa resorted to his own form of payback, by creating a 3D printable model of a Donald Trump butt plug. Using a combination of software, including Photoshop, Maya, and Mesh Lab, he set out to make quite an accurate looking Donald trump model. In order to recreate such a spot-on representation of Trump’s face, he used Photoshop to create a realistic looking “3D skin.”  This was done through the use of photos of the politician/business man, as well as various brush techniques and textures.

“Donald Trump’s actual face underneath the TV make-up is pretty disgusting,” Sosa tells us. “It’s a combination of sunburn, and melanoma-like skin, so using the right shade of sunburned wrinkles made this piece extremely realistic. The only thing I’m not too happy about with this piece is that the thing on his head actually looks decent, unlike that thing that actually lives on Donald Trump’s bald head.”

The design process took Sosa from 8PM on a Thursday night until 5AM the following morning to complete. He then sent the file over to Shapeways, and it is now available for purchase. The 3D printed Donald Trump Butt Plug is available for just $27.99.

“So my response to Donald Trump’s remarks, who says Mexico sends their worst, their rapists, and their drug dealers; I say ‘scr*w you and your Republican Party,”‘ Sosa commented. “I was not sent here by the Mexican Government. I came here with my family thanks to my stepfather. We came here looking for the American Dream and my parents worked their butts off so my brothers and I could go to college or serve the armed forces. I’m no rapists and no drug dealer. I have a college degree in 3D animation and run my own 3D printing business, and guess what! I can make you into any shape I want, 3D print you and sell you to others who share their dislike of you. You can threaten to sue me like you have done hundreds of times to others. However, you are a public figure and me making you into a shape of a butt plug is Freedom of speech.”

What do you think about this “interesting” creation by a Mexican immigrant who certainly does not take a liking to Mr. Trump? Discuss in the 3D Printed Donald Trump Butt Plug forum thread on 3DPB.com.

Bacon Möbius strip !

Bacony goodness + math + 3D printing = an inedible endless Bacon Möbius strip

It’s not for human consumption but is it art?

If you take a strip of bacon and twist one end through 180 degrees then join the two ends you get a piece of bacon with only one side, a Bacon Möbius strip. Cool. But if you want such a thing to adorn your desk (and who wouldn’t?) then being made of real bacon would be, to say the least, a bad idea. So,  to memorialize this mathematical and culinary wonder, why not print a look-alike on a 3D printer? Why not indeed?

This exactly is what a designer with the handle “joabaldwin” created using the Shapeways 3D printing service.

Need one for your desk? It’s 3.346″ w x 3.024″ d x 1.399″ h (the precision is awesome) and it’s just $19 …

iPhone 6 Special

In light of Apple’s latest record-breaking smartphone, Malta 3D Printing has selected a number of useful printables to enhance the iPhone experience.

Early purchasers may have been left with a sour taste in their mouth due to some unforeseen problems, but our selection of unique products will help turn their frowns upside down.

This stylish iPhone 6 charger is sure to save your blushes in a sticky situation – remember that time you accidentally deserted your date, only because your iPhone ran out of battery? What about that time you got lost in the woods searching for your camping buddies?

This versatile gadget annihilates any chance of those awkward situations becoming reality.

Not only does it charge your iPhone faster than a regular charger, it also extends the battery life. Gone are the days when our trusty cellphone batteries would last a couple of days in the red zone. In 2014, low-battery means it’s time to panic!

Using Wi-Fi, 3G, or an application (practically any smartphone function) drains the battery like crazy.

Simply slot your brand new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus into the case and voila.

For the energy conscious customer, a solar-powered version is also available, helping you bring your electricity bill down.  The electronics required are simple to attach to the case, but a full-kit version with no assembly is also available.

If you’re looking for something simpler, this standard iPhone dock will do the job.

There’s nothing unique or special about it, but sometimes simplicity is all you need. On that note, 3D printing marketplaces are now jam-packed with different iPhone 6 cases. Some are quite stylish, like this steampunk case, and others quite basic.

While you’re still buzzing from the familiar smell of a freshly opened iPhone, savor the moment by blasting your favourite tunes. Should Apple’s sound hardware not provide you with the kick you needed, try a set of 3D printed enhancement speakers.

This model by Thingiverse user Datheus is sure to turn a quiet night in with friends into a thumping house party. All that’s required is for users to place their smartphones into the device and prepare for the onslaught of noise complaints.

Speaker for iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus

iPhone users on the go will be tired of fumbling around whilst driving in search of their trusty smartphone – a recipe for disaster. Imagine dodging traffic as it rings away in your bag or pocket, only for you to have missed the call by the time you’ve fished it out.

Debuting on Thingiverse only two days ago, this simple case protects the iPhone and allows drivers to safely answer calls without too much attention diverted from the road.

It’s also been modified to accommodate for charging.

Only released a few weeks ago now, the list of 3D printable enhancement products for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is still relatively small – but having smashed all previous iPhone and smartphone sales records, we can expect the list to grow quickly.

Tabletop Fun

A bright mind and a 3D printer can go a long way. Combining aesthetics and entertainment value, 3D printed games range from chess sets and larger-than-life Rubik’s cubes to entirely new gaming universes created within a matter of days.

Effectively changing the rules of manufacturing, 3D printing will have fans of tabletop gaming stoked when they realize the scale of their favourite pastime just got a whole lot bigger. Printing already has a place in gamers’ hearts’, producing key items like dice and custom landscapes – essential for any serious tabletop gamer.

Exciting breakthrough projects like Breach, Pocket Dungeon and Pocket Tactics have invaded the market dominated by Games Workshop. According to their Thingiverse pages, some of these exciting are yet to be fully completed.

Pocket Tactics is perhaps the most famous of the bunch, and is basically the size of a small travel game – you can play it on any flat surface. Creator Arian Croft, also known as ‘Dutchmogul’, claims to have thought of the idea on a Tuesday night, and by Friday had a functioning prototype ready.

While designers like Croft are busy ping-ponging new ideas around the Ill Gotten Games office, well-established games like Warhammer 40k and Warmachine may need to look over their shoulders.

Sure, it will be difficult for small companies to pry the hands of loyal gamers away from the most popular tabletop games, but what if they bought miniatures from a different company? Some official gaming kits can cost hundreds of euros, and more.

3D printing is allowing for high-quality miniatures, and Hero Forge serves as the proof in the pudding. Their Kickstarter page reveals the length at which they’re willing to help their customers customize their favourite gaming pieces.

Ironically, the digital revolution is helping the analog world.

Raising over $360,000 (more than triple their original target), their Kickstarter financial goal was met back in February. The appeal to gamers lies in the unprecedented level of detail one can add, with users able to choose different armour, poses, weapons, equipment and character sizes.

Moving on to a different branch of games completely, a quick look at the leading online marketplaces like Shapeways or Thingiverse will reveal the extent of the different board games, puzzles, desk toys and life-like models available.

Chess fans will feel right at home here, as the classic game has been a target of 3D technicians around the world. Since all it requires are pieces and a board to play on, the levels of customization are limitlesss.

If you fancy novelty, check out this portable Star Trek 3D chess set, or if you’re eager to take on two foes at once, this impressive three player set from Acryl should do the trick. Lord of the Rings fans will melt when they gaze upon this classic chess set with characters from Tolkien’s universe.

Our next pick is for the puzzle freaks out there. If you’re a fan of the age-old Rubik’s cube, this extra-large, fully-functional 3x4x5 cuboid will certainly catch your eye. Now being produced en masse, this nifty puzzle requires a bit of DIY assembly – requiring users to use their own springs, screws and washers.

The 3D printing gods have been kind enough to provide us with entertaining products in bountiful amounts, and for this we are very grateful. At this rate, our children of the future will be spoiled for choice!
