I use Cura, so I can't do the custom supports. Is there another free slicer that will be able to print this well?

I don't know. Personally I only have experience with Simplify 3D. However the Hexagon pen may print OK without supports since it has a flat side that can adhere to the print bed.

Turned out great with brim no supports, could you perhaps make a cap or prism desktop pen holder to keep the tip from drying out?

Very nice! I was actually doing the exact same thing (different design) for the no lathe challenge too! Unfortunately I didn't get my entry done in time. I really like the pattern on your pen!

if you can make the fat part where the pen goes in, a bit smaller, it would be cap friendly.. not sure if that possible or not, just an idea. btw printing out a second one in neon green... the daughter saw the first one, lol

printed one of the spiraly ones in black PLA. I then used a small drill bit and hand spun it into the hole for a custom fit for the pen cartridge... looks awesome! thankyou.....

no supports but used a raft

Nice! Glad it worked out

Can't wait to give this a try.
