Want to get the feel of your own Apple Watch today? Print your own …

Ok, a solid chunk of plastic might not be very functional, and the finish doesn’t quite compare with that of the real thing, but if you’re really keen to get a sense of what the Apple Watch might be like on your wrist – and which of the two sizes might be right for you – you can now create a 3D-printed model.

Concept designer Martin Hajek is offering “highly detailed” 3D-printing models compatible with most 3D printers, including Makerbot and Ultimaker. The models include both 38mm and 42mm sizes so you can see which best fits your wrist.

The download file will cost you 35 bucks. If you don’t have your own 3D printer, you may be able to find one near you thanks to companies like UPS and Staples offering their own 3D printing services – and you can search for individuals and small businesses on the Makexyz site.

The real thing is currently on display at a Paris fashion retailer, with whispers that Apple may be aiming to have it on sale by Valentine’s Day. Third-party companies have already started offering accessories for the device.

Crude 3D-printed mockup compares size of monster 5.5-inch iPhone 6 to iPhone 5S

We’ve seen a lot of images, renders, schematics, and videos of the expected 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6, but relatively little on its rumored larger brother, a 5.5-inch model.

This crude 3D-printed mockup posted to RocketNews24 makes no claims to be anything more than an illustration of what a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 would look like in terms of size, both in the hand and compared to an iPhone 5S, but does do a good job of turning the abstract dimension into something concrete.

Based on claimed design drawings, the mockup measures 157mm long, 77mm wide and 6.7mm thick.

Check out the full gallery below.

In a previous poll, 30 percent of you planned to buy the larger model, while 60 percent were more interested in the 4.7-inch version. Now you have a sense of what the size could translate to in the hand, do your plans remain the same? Let us know in the comments.

Printing from Photoshop CC is no longer limited to two dimensions, as Adobe has added support for 3D printing to the latest release for Creative Cloud subscribers.

While Photoshop wouldn’t be the obvious tool in which to create 3D objects from scratch, objects can be imported from a 3D scanner, from a modelling tool or from a downloaded file, refined in Photoshop using the new automated mesh repair and support structure generation tools. Once the model is ready to print, it can be sent direct to any of the most popular 3D printers, including the Makerbot Replicator …  expand full story
