CT never fails to deliver!! Hahaha! Another brilliant design I definitely will be printing and using. HAHaha! I love it!

What software did you use to make this?

This taco holder was designed in a 3D CAD program called Rhino 3D.


This shape is so simple that it can be made in almost any 3D design packaged.

Does this need supports to print? I think if it was turned on its side it would eliminate any need for supports.

You are correct 3dwalt. This object is best printed when placed ont its side - as in the screenshot seen below from when we 3D-printed it.


Then the print does not need support.

Thank you, I was looking at the default picture (blue object) and thought it was printed as it would be used.

I printed this taco stand, it works great, I would recommend that it be printed in ABS and not PLA. The PLA plastic soften at the temperatures of a standard taco, Trust me, I have spilled a taco or two.

Glad you liked the taco shell holder and that the model has come to use.

Can you design one that mounts to my car's dashboard? Also: What are the dimensions of an ISO-compliant taco?

That's a next logical remix of the Taco holder.
Regarding ISO-compliance, we are working hard on that ;)
