It's a me, Mario! If there is one character from a video game that has managed to go down as a cultural asset in the history of mankind, it is undoubtedly the small, chubby plumber from the famous Nintendo series of games. Super Mario has been hopping and running across our screens since the 1980s, always obsessed with the mission of rescuing the lovely princess from the clutches of the evil Bowser. Or to compete against Donkey Kong, but that's another story. Rather, we want to devote ourselves today to small gadgets from the 3D printer that bring Super Mario, Luigi and Toad into your living room.
Super Mario figure
Mario as a character on your shelf – honestly, how cool is that? That's exactly what user Anthonylu thought and put a multi-part 3D print template online at Thingiverse. The figure is easy to put together after 3D printing. The multi-part system has a real advantage here: You simply use the matching filament directly and save yourself the tedious painting process. Apart from that, the size of the model is also impressive. So, don't think about it, get started!
PS: Our good Ümit aka Zep To scaled Mario up to 390% and printed it:
Super Mario World Fire Flower
Did you used to curse her like that, the nasty little flower that was sneakily stalking our Mario? Ok, admittedly, most of the time we were to blame for the untimely demise of our plumber in Super Mario World due to carelessness. So let's give the fire flower another chance – namely as a decoration for the windowsill. The 3D print template offered at Thingiverse captures the pixel charm of the original and brings the SNES back to life in the analog world. A real little eye-catcher.
Super Mario pen holder
What do you automatically associate with a Super Mario level? We immediately think of blocks with contents, tubes to dive down and of course the target flag, which we have reached sometimes more, sometimes less successfully. A user on Thingiverse probably had the same thought – and created a 3D print template for you. Not only that here a section of a level was represented absolutely detailed and lovingly (including mushrooms!), no: The whole part also has a real added value! The drain pipe here is not Mario to change sections, but you – to store pens, rulers and other odds and ends that like to lie around on a desk.
Super Mario World: stars and moons
User knape has realized the no less iconic stars and moons from Super Mario World for the SNES as a 3D print template on Thingiverse as a supplement to the Fire Flower. The pixel charm of the 16 bit SNES console prevails here as well. Print it out, put it up and indulge in nostalgic feelings.
Super Mario keychain
Mario has plastered more mushrooms in his career than the toughest psychonaut – clearly, the iconic symbol must also be memorialized in 3D printing! The mushroom provided at Thingiverse as a 3D print template comes with a practical eyelet – and makes a great keychain. A nice gift for all Mario fans.
Super Mario figure – High res
Another figure of our plumber is provided by icefox1983 at Thingiverse. Unlike the Super Mario figure by user Anthonylu, which is also presented here, however, this is a one-piece print template that you don't have to put together. Even if some layers are missing from the artwork, the High-res figure still convinces with its look.
Super Mario lamp
Now you can light up your living space in style – with the 3D printing template offered at myminifactory. The lampshade here represents, how could it be otherwise, the famous “question mark box” from Super Mario World. The green tube from the levels forms the base of the lamp. If you use translucent filament for the screen, you create a particularly beautiful look. A really unique gadget – strike!
Switch game holder
Let's face it – as a true Mario fan, you want to store your cartridges in style, right? That's exactly what Joel Bonasera thought – and created a 3D print template for you to record five games. The side walls depict the familiar trees (are they actually trees?) from Super Mario World. A small but nice eye-catcher for your game collection. P.S.: Of course, PlayStation games also fit in the holder, but we don't want to play the philistine here.
Shelf doors for Ikea shelves
How cool is that, please? New doors for the world-famous Ikea shelf from your 3D printer? Vadim Gutman has really conjured up a little treat for you here! Instead of the boring standard doors from the furniture store, here is a lovingly designed reminiscence of our favorite game. Not only suitable for the nursery, but everywhere a real eye-catcher.
Organizer for your Switch
Organizer and charging station in one – and then really good looking: This is the organizer from Gnarly 3D Kustoms. The castle that the Organizer represents needs no further explanation. The multi-part print template is rich in detail and offers space perfectly matched to your Switch. Complemented with other 3D print templates from the Mario universe, you can create a really stylish storage for your Switch.
THE Princess – So Peach
Princess Peach – or Toadstool, depending on the generation – is probably the most famous character in the video game series, along with Mario and Luigi. Of course, Mario's entire existence revolves around saving the fair lady. We think that's reason enough to also immortalize the princess as a 3D print on your shelf. A high level of detail characterizes the artwork.
