For #3DThursday this week, I asked aerospace engineer and 3D designer Emmett Lalish to share a few of his favorite 3D printed “mechanicals.”

If you follow the world of desktop 3D printing, then you have no doubt seen a few of his popular contributions to Thingiverse such as Screwless Heart Gears, Stretchy Bracelet, Automatic Transmission Model, Preassembled Secret Heart Box, Blossoming Lamp, and more! He is now a part of Microsoft’s new 3D printing group.

Check in each even hour from now until late into the evening to catch ten of his latest favorites! To kick things off, here are two of his own projects that haven’t yet caught on with the public:

I would say my most useful design is my Universal Art Frame, which never really got any attention. I use it to hang all my pictures (especially the huge posters), and it works incredibly well, looks great, and saved me hundreds of dollars.

I also recently updated my Apollo Mission project.
