Printed Paint roll to customize your tapestry.
This hacking project was made in collaboration with ADEO a group that owns many tool brands such as Dexter. We brainstormed as a team and came up with many funny ideas to hack products selected among a thick catalogue.

I got to work on printed accessories for standard 120mm paint rolls.


For instructions, follow the steps.
Otherwise, follow your guts. SolidWorks 2010 file provided to customize text.

Very idea.which material do you use? Flex?

Soon to be leaving thingiverse because of Makerbot's behavior towards open source.

Should this print with Support?

I did a customizable version here:
Have fun! And thanks again to LPFP for sharing this cool idea!

Customizable Paint Roller

super :D merci

une préférence pour le tien atartanian ;)

Nice design!, Can you put up your SolidWorks file?

I'd say for something like this to be featured, it should at least have some customization.

wanted to make on to put text on a cake but its beyond me how to edit the text, is there a way to do it with openscad ? solid works is out of my reach

I'm intrigued as to how well this picks up and deposits the ink. Could it be improved by a thin coat of rubber? (plastidip etc?)

It works ok, but nothing like a silicone etch. I'll try to find some silicone paint to see if it can hold the ink better. One thing : it makes awesome patterns for pottery!

This would be an excelent candidate to be made into a customizer

Ok, Open Scad is really not intuitive for someone who isn't familiar to programing. Is there any other way to generate an .scad for the Makerbot Customizer? Thanks.

Love this design, great idea. I will make a openSCAD file this weekend...if someone else does not do it first. I will be sure to post as a remix to this great thing you've made.

Awesome, thanks for stepping up Mark! Also, great idea from the folks at LPFP.

I really want to, but I really don't understand how OpenScad works. And I tried! Can I export the parametric codes from SolidWorks?
