This is a stylus that I made for a friend of mine who had lost the one in his NDS lite. This one fits rather nicely into the DS lite\'s dedicated stylus slot, and works very well on its touch screen. I\'m sure you can use it on other screens, as well.


This works best when printed at a slight angle (say, 10Ëš) to the raft, like you see in the .stl version. The .blend version uploaded here is parallel to the raft, which leads to threads getting loose and breaking off if printed verbatim.

After you print this, it works best if you sand the tip into a slightly rounder shape. Apply spray paint if you like - might make the surface smoother, and give it a better look as well.

Yes, excellent application! This means having reduced +/- 16 euros, mostly coming from inventory, packaging, handling and shipping costs to less than 16 cents. That's a
gt; 100-fold decrease in costs! Added benefit is that you don't need to wait days for it to arrive. Well, less than 10 minutes probably. That's the second 100-plus-fold decrease, time!

These are products for which the current distribution model cannot compete with a digital distribution and print-at-home scenario. Once RepRaps and makerbots are more common, this will generate an immense value!

B.t.w. It's such a nice example that I blogged about it

EXCELLENT. In many ways it's the little things that will make digital fabrication worth doing, and this is a perfect example of one of those "long tail" products that is common enough that lots of people want it, but not common enough that competition keeps the price reasonable. On Amazon a pack of three styluses is six dollars US. On a MakerBot that's the cost of three quarters of a POUND of styluses, basically enough to keep everyone you know in styluses pretty much forever, even if they're as absent-minded as, say, me.

TMR said it best. Great application of a cheap 3D printer!
