We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
A pencil holder that looks like a giant pencil? Sure why not. My girlfriend wanted one for her desk to hold her pencils. So I made this! I included her original sketch to show for reference.
Update Less Material / Blank!/Initials Removed! (Message me if you want)
I realize not everyone has the initials BM, so I have removed them. This should appeal to those that don't want someone accusing them of theft.
If you want your initials on it, please message me I'd be glad to include them. I just don't feel like making every letter combination possible (26*26)
I have increased the diameter of the cut-out hole to reduce the thickness of the sidewalls to save material. I have also increased the depth of this cut to achieve the same thing. I also reduced the overall height of the "Pencil" portion to allow more visibility to your writing utensils. This had a secondary effect of reducing the amount of material as well.
Make sure you treat your printbed with some sort of anti-curl solution if you use a makerbot or any other unit with adherance issues.
PRINT ORIENTATION: Eraser DOWN Hole UP
OTHER CHANGES: I suggest changing your slicing profiles fill geometry to be "lines" versus triangles or honeycomb, etc.
