Here we introduce you to 3D print start-ups and makers who are dedicated to the topic of water pipes and accessories.
Bongs and Gadgets
Lifted Innovations started selling 3D printed water pipes and smoking accessories in summer 2014. Today you can find in their online shop a selection of different bongs in various sizes, colors and shapes including spare parts – all made of PLA.
The startup Printabowl from America presented its 3D-printed water pipe collection “Cumulus” in 2016. Meanwhile you can also order personalized bongs with your favorite photo.
No, it’s not a dildo. It’s a bong:
The $13,000 Bong
Tokyo Smoke offers affordable designer ceramic bongs on its website, but then the company presented a high-end hipster bong that made many relaxed stoner angry. It is about the “Io Water Pipe”, which Tokyo Smoke developed together with the design studio Partisans and which costs 13,000 US dollars. The decorative water pipe is made of stainless steel and comes from a 3D printer.
You can print bongs, but you can also print cannabis! We already reported about Potent Rope: The startup has specialized in 3D-printed marijuana and wanted to start production already in 2017. But there is no news about the progress so far…
In addition to professional startups, there are also Makers who provide you with free 3D models and tutorials to print your own bong. For example, there is Maker oliverbrossmann5, who used his self-printed bong for two years and now shares the 3D model with you on Thingiverse.
Youtuber and Maker MAD DIY shows you in his video how he prints a bong including grinder with his Monoprice and has to find out that PLA is better suited for his project than ABS:
