Insects, Bugs, and Creepy Crawlers

Posted by in Friday Finds

Insects get a bad reputation for being disgusting, nasty, and creepy creatures. The fact of the matter is that insects represent a major part of life on Earth and we must co-exist with them and evolve with them whether we like it or not. There are actually plenty of cool 3D insect inspired prints on Shapeways that come in various shapes, sizes, and shiny materials. These awesome insect prints won’t bug you at all.

Articulated Stag Beetle by chosetec 

There are over 1000 species of beetles and the stag beetle is the most fearsome of them all. They have massive jaws that would make anyone think twice before coming close to it. Fortunately this one comes in strong and flexible plastic but still looks real.
