There are not a lot of functional prints for women on Thingiverse so I thought it's a good area to try and make a contribution.The only tampon holder on Thingiverse is described as a "joke" :-/ I know the Maker community is very conservative but these are essential items that almost all women use. So it seemed to me we should have at least one here.

This is not the most space efficient design ever, but it's better than your tampons falling out of that flimsy box and tumbling around in the bottom of your bag. It's also a whole lot of fun to load up like an action heroine when feeling otherwise blah. You can even use it with one hand- leaving the other hand free to fight off villains! Really, really inconsiderate villains with terrible timing haha...

The magazine fits six OB Pro Comfort "Normal", or any 13mm x 52mm tampons. It should scale cleanly to fit any tampon the same approximate shape. The TinkerCAD model is here it you'd like to add text or decorations to it: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/gnOJgQYpBFs-tampon-magazine

The spring slides into the bottom plate. That assembly then gets inserted in the magazine and secured with a little superglue. I use superglue and PLA on almost all my prints and it works great, just make sure there's a good fit with no gaps and you only use a tiny tiny bit.

I made a short YouTube video showing my 3D printing workflow and instructions for assembling this print: https://youtu.be/ugxOl6tMnM4 It's my first build video and I'm a bit awkward so I'm not sure how useful it will be.

Two shells, four top and four bottom layers seems to work ok.

Will the spring work in ABS? I got my first printer yesterday and i only have ABS, would it still be springy and not break, or is this a waste of my ABS?

feminist. (jk this is a really good idea)

This is such a fantastic idea. I do a fair bit of traveling, so this is now on my next-to-make-list.

this is hilarious. 10 points!

This is badass. It makes me want to design some cool functional prints for women. I would love to carry this and pull it out when some stranger in the bathroom inevitably asks if I have a tampon.

awesome anniversary present :D thanks!

Great idea for all the women in my family who use tampons.

Do you think this spring will work as properly as when I use ABS?

Wow my sister will love this! Thank you sexycyborg! You're so damn cool <3

I ran across the assembly video for this in my youtube recomendations and had no idea what it was at first. Once I saw it assembled, I was impressed! Good innovative idea! I love how it works like a magazine, really cool. I know I will be printing some off for family, just need some pink filament first! Keep up the great ideas and awesome projects!

Nice setup you got there and props to this really wonderful and useful idea! It shows what 3D printing is really all about! ie. making our lives easier and better. Its also great to see folks like yourself contributing to a great cause (3D printing) while still able to cater to others and issues we care about. Our world really needs more people like yourself. Keep up the good work!

Happy to see it called a magazine, not an ammo clippazine or whatever I always hear on CNN. It is indeed a magazine. Great job on that 3D printed spring! Major props for 100% printability and lulz. I am sure I will print this for at least one lady friend of mine lol.

Now you really need to make a gun for this magazine! :)
Super! Congratulations!

Imagine if this was compatible with a nerf gun, shooting tampons at people LOL

You need to put a giant PEZ head on it! :-)

that was just what i thought :-) Mary Tudor perhaps ;)

love it awesome,, laughed my ass off for 20 minutes,, and then shared it .. great idea,,
awesome to see girls really starting to take charge in the 3d world too

Now if it holds more then 10, is it an assault mag? and now a felony in California?

Yes felony, but not just an assault mag...

It's an assault ammo ghost clippazine capable with 50 caliber clip of shooting >6 tampon clips per second! That's over 6 mmmagazea clip with one pull of the trigger.

For reference: If you don't get it, have a look on youtube searching for: 'kevin de leon ghost gun'

Lol because #landofthefree

This is really cool and original, hope you keep it up.

your english is very good dont be shy ;@)
