Parametric Wearable Container with Slip-On Cap
by 2n2r5, published
This thing started out as a micro cache container for geocaching. It quickly got out of hand and can now be used for anything from a sharpie necklace to a candy jar. You can customize the size, shape, text and even put a loop on this to attach a strap.
I only had enough time to print out 2 sharpie containers and a small box. The default dimensions will produce a perfect sized sharpie case. The inside and outside container shapes are independently customisable for those of you wishing to use this to house a tool or pen. I was thinking of making one for my exact-o knife. It will give me a bigger and more ergonomic handle. How about a pillbox key chain or maybe even making a glow-light. How about attaching your pocket watch to your new single cigar carrying case?
This thing is being listed under household containers but needs its own category for just being awesome!
One drawback of making such an awesome thing is that the text may not work for all configurations. Low side counts specifically will not work well.
- Fixed Containers so that low wall counts work better
- Added ability to make 3 sided containers
- Small fixes in the code
- Fixed bug where sphere would protrude below bottom of container
- Changed wall width of loop to be indepently controlled
