3D printed shaving stuff

I like your foam bowl, but why do you enjoy shaving with a 3D printed razor so much? I printed this razor (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3875898) some time ago and I didn't like it at all. It's too light for me, probably because I'm used to a double-edged steel razor. I don't choose the angle of the shave, it just goes under gravity.
Sorry to hear the TNNSER 3D didn't work for you. The TNNSER 3D was designed by @twhite and @sɐǝɹpu∀ . And of course, I printed one for myself and have used it many times with great results. The TNNSER 3D is genuinely a solid performer. This silly 3d printed stuff is just an extension of the hobby for me, and something different to post about. My shaving preference has always been straight razors and vintage SEs.

Some of us like light razors, and some of us like heavy razors.
If you come from a vintage SE background where most razors are made from sheet metal or plastic you'll be right at home with 3D-printed razors.
If you come from a modern stainless steel DE background you'll struggle with weight and angle.
(A 120g stainless steel or brass razor used with "gravity" is too much pressure in my book, btw)
With most SE razors there is no need to "choose an angle". Cap flat on the face. Any other angle is wrong. Simples.
Most designers of 3D-printed razors have an SE background as far as I can tell.
My advice: Buy a vintage 1912 or injector first (less hassle, just eBay). If you don't like them, don't bother with 3D-printed.

GemTR v1

This is an SE Razor project I've been working on for a while. The head is a combination of two razors I designed a while back. Once complete, it will have a case with space for blade storage. The GemTR v1 will be my travel razor.

Wouldn't use of GEM blades make travel a bit more difficult, particularly when flying?

I was thinking that something that takes either injector, AC or hald-DE blades could have a blade storage compartment in the handle itself. It would mean that the handle would eventually cease to function as blade storage, but it would remain useable otherwise and before travelling, you could just print a new handle.

Blades or shaving gear are never in my carry-on. I like the idea of storing blades in the handle.

I've been asked several times to design a DE blade holder/dryer. Someone even posted a picture of one that can be purchased. Well, here's my version. It's a simple print-in-place case for DE blades. The case has a built-in hinge and snaps close with pressure tabs. The honeycomb design provides airflow which helps the blade dry faster if stored wet, or right after shaving. The blade is securely locked in place from the center, and the edges remain clear from contact even when the case is open. To store the blade, simply align the center hole with the retaining button, flex the end of the blade, and slide it in place. The files are available for download on my Thingiverse page.

I’ll be printing this tomorrow when I’m off! This is a great idea! Any chance of adapting one for AC and Gem blades too?
