I have a pair of bluetooth earbuds which I carry around with me in my pocket. However, they have a tendency to switch themselves on through their movement.
So, I designed this simple device which slots each in end-to-end to protect the buttons. It also allows a L-R label of each one as I get the wrong one more than 50% of the time, I'm sure.
The device has thin walls which flex against the body to hold the earbuds in place.
This is the third iteration of the design which I've pared to the bone to make as compact as possible.
Print with the slight flat downwards.
No supports are required but you may want to print slowly due to the delicate nature of the thin (flexing) walls.
I am very much an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to designing. My designs tend to have two things in common
1) They serve a purpose. I like to design functional objects which have a real-world use. 3D printing for art is fine, but it's its real-world application which will take the technology forward
2) Wherever possible I design to be easy to print and try to eschew supports or complex printing; modifying the design where necessary and possible to achieve this.
