Customizable Keyboard Penholder/Box

3D model description


This is a customizable penholder/planter with a keyboard style. You can turn in a box using a cap also generated by the customizer.

You can write your own text, select how many lines do you want and choose between a squared or classic alignement of keys.

The customizer generates 2 figures: The vase and the cap so you can print penholders or planters and using the cap you'll get a nice box.

See below some tips for the customizer.

I've included a bunch of STL's related to the most common keyboard layouts: QWERTY (US and spanish), AZERTY, DVORAK, COLEMAK and MALTRON. Also the caps with the name of the layout are included.

Also i've included a funny one with the classic 'now i have a machine gun ho ho ho' :)

...and also the files for the small red-white box from pictures (smallstuf-cap.stl + pendrives-sdcards-vase.stl)

Be creative, make funny stuff!!

Have fun!

something between 10% - 20%

Tested with PLA

Use a low infill just to avoid problems with the bottom of the penholder

0.2 resolution it's ok

Customizer Tips

Part: Wich part to see in preview
Lines: Nombre of text lines (1 to 4)
1st, 2nd, 3rd,4th Line: Text in every line. Max 10 characters
Squared (yes/no): Squared or classic layout.

IMPORTANT!!!: Customizer makes a weird thing when using a long line of numbers. It converts something like 1234567 to 1.23456+e06 string!!.
If you want to write something using just numbers, please add a 'space' after last digit just to ensure the customizer treats as a text. ;)
