This is an improvement on the original Rest to reduce the amount of material used to print it, and enable them to be stacked for storage. Rests are used to hold woodwork pieces above a surface when they are being sprayed with lacquer.

The rest would certaily damage a surface as presently presented if it was used to support a heavy piece. If the piece was positioned on the rests so that a seen surface was the surface of support, then supports such as these should not be used.In most instances I support the pieces on surfaces that will not be seen e.g. the bottom of the piece, and so any dents do not affect the appearance. In other instances the piece has legs and the piece is positioned on them. Once again, no problem if dents are made. The damade to light pieces wouldl also be minimal. I have yet to make any rests to this design, but was using it as an exercise to develop knowledge of designing in Autodesk 123D. If I strike any dent problems in use of the rests I will either cut the top off them to increase the supporting surface area, or redesign it. I have ordered a 3D Printer kit and will print some rests when it is set up. Thank you for you comments and suggestion.

I think I tried one of these once, but the pointy tip left dents in the wood.

I wonder if a hemispherical tip would be better.
