3D model description

A hot beverage paper cup sleeve with mindful words. Turn the outer sleeve ring to reveal a single word per day to keep you centered and mindful. There are eight words one extra for an extra day of the week.

This print differs from the previous mindful sleeve is that the letters are printed separately and then glued onto the sleeve. For I'm still working on my painting skills :P

This sleeve is a bit thicker than the previous ones I've shared on this platform. It's due to the letters. I've tried printing thinner letters but it didn't work, so I've increased the thickness of the inner sleeve ring to embed the letters in. And managed to curve the top part of the letters so that the outer sleeve slides on their surface without touching the inner sleeve ring.

3D printing settings

For the inner and outer sleeve rings, I've used Amazon's Basics PLA.
End temp: 200
Bed temp: 50
Print speed: 50
No supports. But I've noticed that the outer sleeve ring doesn't finish the top curve of the window properly. but acceptable for me.

For the letters, I've changed from PLA to ABS. Printed on Anycubic Chiron.
End temp: 240
Bed temp: 110 (The higher temp worked better for me to keep the small size print stuck on the bed surface and not curl up while printing.
I've also reduced the print speed to 40.
