Sure, 3D printing has brought us a ton of cool creations and unique ideas (can we just go back to the whole 3D-printed Aston Martin thing?), but did you know it can save you a trip to the store when you’re in a pinch? If you have access to a desktop 3D printer, you might be able to save yourself a little time and money by printing some useful household items. We’re not talking about baubles and knicknacks here either, these are items that actually serve a purpose.All your forks are in the dishwasher and you can’t wait until they’re clean? Bam! Print yo’ self a new one! Bought a new shirt but don’t have an extra hanger? 3D-print that sucker. Booyah!The best part? You don’t have to have a mass of 3D or technical prowess to create these objects. Everything on this list can be downloaded directly to your PC and sent to your 3D printer. Plus, when Windows 8.1 is released this fall, you’ll be able to 3D print things straight from your desktop, since Windows 8.1 will include native support for 3D printing through built-in APIs. But you can get started on these even before Windows 8.1 is available. All you need is the plastic and the printer itself.
