From the jungles of Whyst, where tree-dwelling elves have perfected the craft of whoodoo (pron: whoo, as in whoosh) making lucky thingies with skulls on them, here is a typical woodoo box found from this culture: perfect for placing small fetishes within or imprisoning troublesome will o' wisps, as this one does.
(feathers not included ;) )
I will probably eventually paint it. Hmm, maybe I should print another one so I can have one with an LED shining through and another painted. I bet it would look great in black ABS! Gotta get me summa that.


This box was printed on an UP! printer. I used white abs plastic and a .35 mm deposition layer setting.

Try using our luminous filament, that would look awesome!

Awesome design! I can't wait to print it in different colors.

Thanks for uploading this!

Worked FANTASTICALLY on a spruced up MakerBot. Making several for halloween gifts. Thanks!

That's so great Mike! Glad you like it.

Very nice! Your designs inspire me to do better!. What software do you use? And, give me the low-down on the UP! printer. How well does it work, how easy to calibrate, etc. I have a Makerbot and was wondering just how the other printers stack up.

Oh dude, thanks for the compliment by the way!

Hey MagicDan,

I made this in 3d studio max. I started by creating a box with subdivided faces. I altered a few of these faces a little by triangulating certain squares. Then I extruded faces in various places, and extruded some of these even more. Then I applied a taper modifier and a meshsmooth modifer to
the whole thing.

I love my UP! printer :) I have written a review for the Ponoko blog, which will come up soon. It is mostly positive because the prints come out so fabulously and there is no calibration necessary to make it print nicely right out of the box. Of course, controls for sophisticate
d calibration are available to optimize the speed, manage infill and reduce support structures on particular prints.

I don't have a makerbot, but read a lot of reviews. It seemed to me that the makerbot was a great thing for those who like to tinker and don't get frustrated with "I wanna print now
!!!* lol. But I wanna print now. So I was always reluctant to get one.

On the other side of the coin, makerbot appears to be ultimately customizable and constantly upgradable. So you probably have more control over the success of a makerbot ultimately than a commercial printer like the UP!.

e this helps!


Awesome, thanks for the info. Yeah I gotta say I'm really impressed wth the Makerbot, but the UP! printer has my attention too, just in quality of the prints with no tinkering. I can't wait to see what's next!
