Updated so it can print right-handed or left-handed text. Thanks for the request!
Things I'm proud of:
Updated to expose a parameters to enable/disable support, or print individual parts. Thanks for the requests!
Want a pen that nobody can steal? Print one with your name on it. Or any other message you like. Very popular for birthdays and demos - the Pen prints fairly quickly, is personalized, and useful!
Use the Customizer and enter:
Print one, at least 20% infil - 100% infil doesn't use much plastic, and the pen is stronger. Make sure you have your filament diameter calibrated - the fit of the cap and plug to the body is precise. Peel off the 'ears' at the ends of the pen. and carve off the support under the tip of the pen (see detail rendering). Insert a Pilot G2 ink cartridge into the pen. Insert the plug to hold the ink cartridge, and turn it to lock it into place.
Pilot G2 cartridges are available at any office supply store, or http://www.amazon.com/Pilot-Refill-Grip-ExecuGel-Point/dp/B004E2TY0C .
Write. The G2 is a great gel cartridge, and yours is truly unique!
When you're done, put the cap on.
