This is a fun and easy to print memory stick holder I made a while back to keep all my memory sticks & stuff in one place.
It is one of my first 3d printing projects and it worked out well, so rather than keep it to myself, I thought I would share it with all you beautifull makers out there...
I designed it with all the support you need and it clips together with minimal effort (if all goes well with the print.) I added a size cube so you can get the scale accurate.
I used Ultimakers blue fillament and printed in .1mm layer height @ 60mms.
I hope you enjoy!

N.B. Mankind meddling with something deadly that takes thousands of years to decay is a BAD idea! I only made this to remind myself of that...and for fun.

Printer Brand:










This model is modeled with all the supports it needs and clips together with pins.
For best results, use a brim rather than a raft if it is even necessary.
I printed it with Ultimakers blue PLA filament, which is like sticky butter and prints really well.


Remove the brim & supports and puzzle the pieces together... :-)
The pins should fit tightly in order for it to stay together. You can also glue it if you choose.

Is it me, or does that model look like that hatch slides shut? I think it does. If so, that is absolutely Awesome! Also, can you upload a solid one that doesn't open? I've looked for other models of the atomic bomb on Thingiverse, but they were all either undetailed or inaccurate representation of such a devastating device; having proportional fins or a simplified shape. It's a really spectacular model. Thanks for the effort.

When you reply can you also tell me where the "Caution Radioactive" plaque goes? I can't figure it out from the pictures provided.

Thanks for the kind words! Yes, it does indeed close. It may be a tight fit, but nothing a light sanding won't fix.
I can definitely add the solid model, I'm a bit busy today, but I will let you know when I do.
The plaque is really just a stencil which I used to spray a faded radioactive symbol just below the door.
I also built a more accurate little boy atomic bomb which may interest you?
You can see a picture of it on my website under 3D prints - www.antsinafrica.co.za
Or just wait until I upload it here :-)
Thanks again!

Oh yes, thank you, I would be most greatful if you could do that but in your own time of course. I don't want to be any inconvenience. I can't believe that I didn't think that [in regards to "the plaque" being a template], Haha. Thanks for your prompt reply, I will be sure to look at that website as soon as possible. I hope you are well and can't wait to hear from you again and print the model myself. Thank you for all your help, I really do appreciate it.

Hi Luke. No problem at all.
I have created and uploaded a solid version of the body for you.It should just replace the hollow body.
It will need support because of the top overhang, unless you stop the print when it gets to the top and weld or glue the nose cone on?
It depends what you are going for?
I will be uploading my "little boy" atomic bomb model soon, so stay tuned for that.
I wish you a fun and successfull print.:-)

Thanks, I appreciate it.

I'll post when the print finishes but the forethought on designing with support is amazing. Fantastic job on this!

Awesome! I can't wait to see how yours turns out. This was actually my first multi part design.
I try avoid using supports on all my designs, supports waste time and filament, and also leave a bad scar.
Thanks for the kind comment!
