A mixed geometric/organic, angled pen holder inspired by honeycombs.
It gives a little bit of an angle to the pens and pencils it holds, making it easier to grab them when needed (I was always kind of annoyed that the pens I wanted to pick up from in front, where facing upwards!!!).
Also the perspective form of the sockets makes it easier to choose which pen you want to use.
I have to note that damm301's Pen Holder (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:73489/#instructions) , which is truly a great featured design, also gives an angle to the pens but in different way. This was not insired or derived by his pen holder (as I actually designed this before I ever so so it) but i have to acknowledge the slight similarity.
I intend to upload a resized one in the near future...so you don't have to do it!
Also a split version is coming soon so that it can be printed in 2 colors (honeycomb slots - base)
This thing is a pretty big. It was designed to actually hold 2 pens in every honeycomb so if you print the file as it is you will get a pen holder with height: 16cm, width: 24cm and depth: 170cm that can hold up to 24 pens/pencils.
So unless anyone interested has a lot of pencils (and a lot of room on you desk) I would suggest you print this at about 65%-60% size, as i have done in the photos of the printed object. This will give you a more normal sized holder that can easily hold 12-15 pens/pencils.
This was printed with:
Printer: Printrbot Simple Metal

It might need a little bit of sanding for the tips at the top, if you want a better finished look.
