A cool pencils pot full of knurls :-)
(just another example for the knurl surface library v2)
This thing is big! More than 80mm diameter and 120mm height.
The one I printed (PLA) has a wall thickness of 0.7mm.
The ZIP file contains already compiled pots and test files with a wall thickness from 0.7mm to 1.2mm in 0.1mm increments).
Do use the OpenSCAD to change whatever the dimensions you like.
UPDATE: Added "solid_pencilsPot.stl" intended to be printed in "vase mode".
Don't be lazy and use the OpenSCAD :-) it may take longer... but is easy and you have full control over all the dimensions.
Be careful if you want to go fast and just scale this thing: scale it up as much as you wish, the walls may be too thin to scale it down, you can always use something like thingiverse.com/thing:32118 to determine your minimum wall thickness for the profile/material you are using.
Do use the test STL before attempting the penci pot! It will not take too long and may save you to have to stop the build 1h later.
Change the "user parameters" to your desired values.
