Wonderful! I went with candlesticks because I couldn't find an orientation of the profile that removed all the troublesome overhangs. Candle holes were added later in Tinkercad.

Great idea. I like your blog and concur with your sentiments about the Slate article - it's a matter of mindset. I fail all the time (and not just at 3D printing!), but that's how I learn.
It's like being an explorer - sail around randomly until you bump into a reef or island, then say "aha!" and add it to your map. Next time you'll know how to navigate the region. Not as easy as following a known route from the start, but it's more fun and confers a better understanding of the system, be it the sea or a new technology.
The Customizer drawing widget could definitely use some tuning to be a little more user friendly. It took me many tries to get a satisfactory design too.
I think the Customizer worked wonderfully, it's my hands not cooperating with fine detail that was the problem! :)
could you upload the file you used? It's awesome.
Hello girdlescletch, I can't upload an stl file to a "make" but you can access the file on Tinkercad here: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/fPH71QxCeSw-day-200-cgr-candlestick-lathehttps://www.tinkercad.com/thin...
