Cigar Tube by whowhatwhere Apr 21, 2010

Description

OK, I admit it... About once a year I smoke a cigar or two (normally xmas and my birthday) but not all cigars come in their own protective aluminum tube so I've designed my own.

This is an early draft with flat ends. I'd like to round off at least one of the ends but could not see a way of doing that yet without making the print unstable and prone to topple during extrusion - have to wait for my makerbot and play with some ides...

This is a double barreled tube suitable for two cigars. Anything up to a petit corona should fit without problems.

Have you used this yet? Does it give the cigar an ABS flavor?
Cool, yes, that's exactly what I was thinking. My worry was that printing something so tall with such a small surface area at the bottom (a 1mm thick wall at best) might be tempting fate a bit, so I wanted to wait and experiment before I made changes to the model.

I also want to play and see how big a gap the plastruder can "jump" - Thinking about building a "low fill" (e.g. 15% -20%) solid as a support material and then cutting/filing it off after printing.
You might be able to turn them over -make the inside ends cone-shaped then you can have a nice round end on the outside.
