My first test in captive 3D printing.

Australian currency is water proof and rip proof, but unfortunately it's not always accepted in smaller FOREXs. US dollars are accepted everywhere but made out of paper. This is my solution for carrying an emergency money supply when travelling. Protected and discreet.


Make sure that your infill is high enough to ensure that your walls don't wind up as seperate laminations.

Use the keyring hole as an indicator of the end of print, then do the following;

  • pause
  • using Pronterface move your print head out of the way, remember how far you've moved it
  • carefully insert the money
  • move the print head back to precisely where it was
  • resume print

Actually U.S. currency is made up of 75% cotton and 25% linen. It holds up fairly well when wet.

interesting idea
