3D Printed Kippah Is Nothing Short of Awesome – Technology Meets Tradition

It is nothing short of awesome when new technology is used to create traditional religious objects. Case in point, the 3D Printed Kippah that was given to me as a present last night. Members of my congregation saw this Kippah and knew I would love it. I do; it’s cool tech I can wear on Shabbat.

3D Printed Kippah Is Nothing Short of Awesome - Technology Meets Tradition

The Kippah (traditional Jewish head covering) comes in all sorts of shapes, sizes and designs but this was something entirely new. The design looks modern, the color is bright and it actually stays on my head without needing clips.



Someone seeing the 3D Printed Kippah won’t immediately know that it has that special bit of tech as part of its origins, but I do. I love it!!


It’s reason enough for me to revisit the idea of getting my own 3D printer.

  1. I am seriously thinking about picking a 3d printer up especially since the cost has gone down. Micro Center has a powerspec one that is a Makerbot clone for around 800 and it can print with two colors or two materials (Plastic and PLA options)…

    As for the kippah…it’s very cool and one of the most different 3d prints I have seen.
