This is a simple test where we show how a MakerBot Replicator 3D printer can be paused so that a small plastic sphere (whistle pea) can be inserted into the whistle before the 3D printer closes up and seals the top.
We modeled this whistle based on Zaggo's popular http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1046

  • Load the STL file into your 3D-printer software.
  • After the pea is completed pause your 3D-printer
  • Remove the pea
  • Insert it into inside of the whistle body
  • Resume the 3D-printing of the whistle to finish and enclose the pea
    Enjoy! :)

Worked well, but the top of the print (side of the whistle) was too porous, so I used some Krazy Glue to seal it better.
