Look What I Made Today

This was really fun - a pencil holder with my business name. The letters were printed separately, then each one fit into its spot on the box. The tolerance was exactly right - no glue needed and those letters have no wiggle room.

This was printed in several parts - each letter is separate and the pencil holder was printed as one part with a color change after the base.
This model required some trial testing first - to see if the pencil hole would work, and to see if the letters would fit. The first trial showed I needed to leave more space around each letter.

The trials showed that with 0.15mm offsets all around each letter, they fit perfectly. Now everyone in my family wants their own...

Anyone can design anything in 3D!
