3D-printed whistle (external pea) by CreativeTools Oct 31, 2012

Description

This is a simple test where we show how a MakerBot Replicator 3D printer can be paused so that a small plastic sphere (whistle pea) can be inserted into the whistle before the 3D printer closes up and seals the top.
We modeled this whistle based on Zaggo's popular thingiverse.com/thing:1046

Worked well, but the top of the print (side of the whistle) was too porous, so I used some Krazy Glue to seal it better.
