Pen or Tool Stand / Spring Design

Prints (0)

Description

I was looking for a stand to keep my fountain pens upright. I did not find something that I liked so I designed something. This pen / tool stand is shaped like a spring and it even has some flexibility. 

There are four designs:

  • straight round sping
  • tapered round spring
  • straight hex spring
  • tapered hex spring

The straight spring has a diameter of ~55mm , the opening of the tapered spring is ~53mm. All four can be scaled down, if necessary. I guess scaling up is possible, too.

The springs print well at 0.2mm layer height. 0.3mm is also possible, if your printer supports this height. You will need support within the parts. And its removal is no fun...
