LUX DRACONIS 003 - 3D printed candleholder - Kai Bracher

This is my new work :
LUX DRACONIS 003 – a 3D printed candleholder

The first of an upcoming series of dragon-themed 3D printed candleholders.

The beauty of this little tea light holder not only lies in the design of the dragon, but also ( and maybe even more) in the wonderful shadows that are painted on the wall, once a candle is lit.

This nylon dragon can hold a standard Tea light of 39 mm (1 ½“) diameter.

It has a small hole in the back, on which it easily can be hung on a nail or a small screw.

It´s available here:

I just got the news that there is an article about my 3D printed candle holders at 3Dprint.com, one of the leading 3D printing News portals.

This is my new 3D printed candleholder „Striding man“.

And as a flame has to be carried with grace and elecance, this guy takes it´s job seriously. Maybe even bordering on the comical…. ?
It´s 3D printed in steel and is standing approx. 20 cm in height of course is available at my shapeways shop.

3D printed dragondoorhandle 009- Kai Bracher

This doorhandle can turn every door into a magic portal.  The dragon sits on the spindle, as if he is a guardian of something.

His  wings are decorated with some organic, ornamental lines, as are his legs and head. The shaft shows some linear ornaments. Maybe these are some ancient runes…

This pictures and the video show the dragondoorhandle 009 in polished grey  steel.

Other available finishes are: steel,  matte black steel, matte gold steel, polished gold steel, polished nickel steel.

This doorhandle is designed for the 8×8 mm square spindles that are used in most european countries.

This doorhandle is available at my shapeways shop.

The dragon is fixed to this rods in the old-fashioned way: with a steel pin, that runs through the square rod and locks the doorhandle to the rod. ( see video)

I just released a new dragon doorhandle. It´s my first pull doorhandle.

And it shows a little dragon hatching.

Embedded in a mysterious structure, the beast to be is cracking it´s egg and is looking onto an unknown future.

This dragon doorhandle is app. 20 cm tall and can be easily mounted to a door using M8 nuts and screws.

3D printed candleholder „shY“

Just released a  new candleholder: „shY“
Have you ever been in this situation: You wanted to express your feelings to someone special.
But you didn´t quite dare…I bet you have!
Ouuhhhhh, this guy is the same.
But inspite of his fears he seems determined to make a stand and go for it…

And who knows: You might ignite a fire that´s worth all the anxiety….


I had the honor and the pleasure to show my dragondoorhandles on the shapeways booth at 3D Printshow Berlin.
German 3D-Printing expert and Youtuber Thomas Sanladerer made a great and informative video about the shapeways booth, including my work  :

The candle is already burning, but somebody is still fixing some minor difficulties on the tray of the candleholder.
