You have pencils. Lots and lots of pencils.

This is the pencil holder for you. It holds 144 pencils at the ready.

The base is a tray for the little things you need at hand. And hidden in the center is a cup for larger things like a ruler or some scissors. The hole pattern has 6-fold symmetry so you can sort your colors by the color wheel, if you wish.

I have built-in brims on the bottom to help it stick to the build platform. They come of easily enough. And the bottom edge is rolled under a little to make it easier to have that clean look after you trim them off.

If you like it, let me know. And if you have pencil/pen/marker/brush holder you'd like modeled up, let me know.


This should print without supports or rafts.

Outstanding example of design excellence. Beautiful, functional, and any idiot could print it.

Thanks, I just printed it... it's holding screwdrivers, lathes, pens, pencils, spoks, brushes, it looks so cool and well arranged, a shelf made into an artform... Actually, i'd be tempted to make a larger one that can hold more items and with different sized holes, some small for tweezers and things, some large for felt tip pens and larger screwdrivers, perhaps even 4-5 marker pens. It looks atomic as well as artichoke. I designed sea urchins in openscad based on a similar scenario, i will probably be able to adapt my sea urchin versions into a low poly atomic explosion which can hold more tool shapes. it's a bit easier than drilling one. hard work.

Can someone provide finished dimensions? My computer says "too big to render"....sad face.

5.1" tall.
5.95" diameter

Thanks. Am new to this. Have a MakrBot Simple...have to see what it's print dimensions can be. Will post if I get lucky enough to make your pencil holder. Looks AMAZING.

Thank you for a great thing, We use it for keeping our 3D printing tools.
