Exactly the same outline as the original work, but with the hole for the thumb implemented in openSCAD (instead of in the eps) for better adjustabilty. I hear you br3ttb ;)


To adjust to thumb or book size:

  • download .scad and .dxf files
  • adjust parameters to fit
  • export as stl, slice and print
  • read singlehandedly ;)

The stl attached equals the original in size and shape (don't know about thickness though).

I used two perimeters and 5% infill (honeycomb) and it is quite sturdy.
