3D model description

A mixed geometric/organic, angled pen holder inspired by honeycombs.

It gives a little bit of an angle to the pens and pencils it holds, making it easier to grab them when needed (I was always kind of annoyed that the pens I wanted to pick up from in front, where facing upwards!!!).

Also the perspective form of the sockets makes it easier to choose which pen you want to use.

I have to note that damm301's Pen Holder ( , which is truly a great featured design, also gives an angle to the pens but in different way. This was not insired or derived by his pen holder (as I actually designed this before I ever so so it) but i have to acknowledge the slight similarity.

I intend to upload a resized one in the near you don't have to do it!

Also a split version is coming soon so that it can be printed in 2 colors (honeycomb slots - base)

3D printing settings

This thing is a pretty big. It was designed to actually hold 2 pens in every honeycomb so if you print the file as it is you will get a pen holder with height: 16cm, width: 24cm and depth: 170cm that can hold up to 24 pens/pencils.

So unless anyone interested has a lot of pencils (and a lot of room on you desk) I would suggest you print this at about 65%-60% size, as i have done in the photos of the printed object. This will give you a more normal sized holder that can easily hold 12-15 pens/pencils.

This was printed with:

Printer: Printrbot Simple Metal

Material: PLA/PHA

Filament: Colorfabb Intense Green

Temp: First Layer-200C / Rest-195C

Layer height: 0.2mm

Speed: Variable - around 45-50mm/sec

Shells: 3

Layers: Top/Bottom - 3

Infill: 20 (but you can always put some more in there for weight)

Supports: No

Time: aprox. 11hours

It might need a little bit of sanding for the tips at the top, if you want a better finished look.
