What are the expected dimensions? Mine printed at ~26mm high. Thanks!

Thanks for your comment and question. The STL file is 26 mm tall at 1:1 scale.

Nevermind - I see in the software screen capture that the width (printed on its side) is 26mm. Nice! Can't wait until next Taco Tuesday.

CT never fails to deliver!! Hahaha! Another brilliant design I definitely will be printing and using. HAHaha! I love it!

What software did you use to make this?

This taco holder was designed in a 3D CAD program called Rhino 3D.


This shape is so simple that it can be made in almost any 3D design packaged.

Does this need supports to print? I think if it was turned on its side it would eliminate any need for supports.

You are correct 3dwalt. This object is best printed when placed ont its side - as in the screenshot seen below from when we 3D-printed it.


Then the print does not need support.

Thank you, I was looking at the default picture (blue object) and thought it was printed as it would be used.

I printed this taco stand, it works great, I would recommend that it be printed in ABS and not PLA. The PLA plastic soften at the temperatures of a standard taco, Trust me, I have spilled a taco or two.

Glad you liked the taco shell holder and that the model has come to use.

Can you design one that mounts to my car's dashboard? Also: What are the dimensions of an ISO-compliant taco?

That's a next logical remix of the Taco holder.
Regarding ISO-compliance, we are working hard on that ;)
