The Desperado is a waterproof two part capsule that houses anything within the volume of a cigarette, primarily designed for surfers and kayakers it will help keep any of your smaller items secure and dry. Holds a small pencil and paper, a cigarette or most tablets.
Desperate times, call for desperate measures.
The challenge for Apex Studio was to create a slimline 3D printed waterproof vessel that could house anything inside the volume of a cigarette and still fit on a set of keys without being too obtrusive.
Through various iterations and styles The Desperado was born. A waterproof, yet slimline storage vessel for all your items that need to be protected and available at any time, in any scenario - surfing, skiing, boating, kayaking, fishing, showering, snorkeling, anywhere!
The Desperado features a double o-ring seal for that added security.
Apex printed The Desperado on our Dimension Elite 3d Printer. Please print on or below a 0.2 layer height with the base of the capsule aligned to the printer platform so the internal uses no support. Alternately, print with support and drill out the internals with a 9mm drill bit.
Two o-rings with a diameter of between 6-8mm by 1.5mm wall thickness is required for sealing. Alternatively, if waterproofing is not required do not use o-rings.
Happy printing and please inform if there are any issues.
