Default 3D print & resin pen

I have been playing around with the 3D print/resin casting ideas, thought I would give this design a go and see what happened. This was my first Tiny Giant, and I was sure exactly what to expect but it ended up looking fairly decent. My wife had the good camera for the night so I was forced to use my cell phone. The pics are not up to par but I couldn't resist posting the results. Let me know what you think.

I suspect that you're one print away from a Celtic knot. ;) 3d printers start to open up all kinds of ideas in pen making. Looks like you're going to have some fun experimenting!

Joey, that is so cool. I have a 3d printer too and have been looking into printing blanks. I printed one but still need to fill it to turn it. Iíll post a picture here in a day or two if you want.

I have a few pretty crazy designs I need to try. There are so many options and patterns that can be made. Itís all exciting and fun. Please post anything you make. I draw a lot of my own ideas from seeing others works.

That turned out pretty nicely. Very clever. The possibilities seem endless with these printers. Perhaps you could print sides to your design and it would become it's own mold too, thst would simply just turn off.
