Thank you for this nice design. I found a problem with the tips of the pens slipping out from the cup, so I made an improved version, with a closed bottom ring. It still looks great, and the pens stay in. I have also thinned the sides to be 1.8mm wide, because a default extrusion width with a 0.4 nozzle is 0.45, so it makes exactly 2 perimeters (times two) versus previous 2 perimeters (times two) plus one infill line, which now decreases overall print time and used material, plus the cup looks slicker. Also I made this a higher resolution model.

Here is the file, feel free to include it here, cause I wouldn't like stealing the hits from you.

I printed this out a few years ago and wanted to print another, but I lost ther STL and didn't know where I got it from. I was pretty bummed out, but I really like this pencil holder design so I just searched through 52 pages of other inferior pencil holders before I found it. #eureka!

Ha! Inferior indeed! Thanks for the comment :)
