It's getting harder and harder to find candles that fit our obscure advent wreath -- they're all just a bit too big. And so OpenSCAD to the rescue! Here's a parametric candle stick adapter you can use to get a nice perfect fit.
The OpenSCAD file is commented with full instructions. If there's demand for it, I'll modify it to same some material and height when a smaller candlestick needs to fit into a larger hole.
(I printed the one for the photo in green and stuck a huge candle in it so it would be easy to see -- the candle is about twice the size of the hole. You'll probably want to tweak the parameters in the OpenSCAD file for your particular needs.)
Print. (Look at the OpenSCAD file for instructions on measuring your candlesticks and candle holders.)
The STL is for inserting a candle tapering from diameter 25mm to 20mm along a 20mm insertion depth into a hole that tapers from 12mm to 10.5mm along a 12mm insertion depth.
