Summary

This customizer creates 10 different desktop organizers, and each is emblazoned with your choice of cool Lockheed Martin military hardware designs.

Open this thing in the Thingiverse Customizer to make a pen & pencil cup, business card/post-it tray, coaster, LED light shade that projects images, paperclip & push-pin jar, flower pot, candy dish, vase, mini paper basket, or soda can sleeve.

You can etch your choice of LM product images such as the U-2 Dragon Lady spy plane, the SR-71 Blackbird, the F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter, F-22 Raptor, F-35 Lightning Joint Strike Fighter, F-16 Fighting Falcon, PAC-3 MSE Interceptor missile, MEADS radar and launcher, K-MAX helicopter, PTDS Aerostat, Littoral Combat Ship, C-130 Super Hercules airplane, or Apache Longbow helicopter.

Examples and suggested customizer settings are given in "LM Custom Container Creator Instructions.pdf"

Print Settings

Printer:

Various

Rafts:

Doesn't Matter

Supports:

No

Resolution:

<= 0.2 mm

Infill:

15%


Notes:

Please see "LM Custom Container Creator Instruction.pdf" for suggestions on customizer settings.

The rim_thickness should be set to no more than 3mm wider than the wall_thickness to ensure satisfactory printing without supports.

If you set etch_depth equal to wall_thickness, then the etching becomes through-holes. In this case, the OpenSCAD model will automatically add supports inside the holes. Carefully punch out or cut out the supports after printing.

The Soda Can Sleeve is meant to be printed with flexible filament. All others can print with standard filament.

Post-Printing

If you set etch_depth equal to wall_thickness, then the etching becomes through-holes. In this case, the OpenSCAD model will automatically add supports inside the holes. Carefully punch out or cut out the supports after printing.

How I Designed This

This original thing was designed using OpenSCAD and is designed to use the Thingiverse Customizer. I also used Inkscape to convert bitmaps to vector graphics, and a custom MatLab script to convert the vector graphics to OpenSCAD instructions.

This Thing was created as part of a Lockheed Martin internal design competition by Walter A. Kuhn from LM RMS in Syracuse, NY.
