3D-printed whistle (external pea)
by CreativeTools, published
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 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1046

- Load the STL file into your 3D-printer software.
- After the pea is completed pause your 3D-printer
- Remove the pea
- Insert it into inside of the whistle body
- Resume the 3D-printing of the whistle to finish and enclose the pea
