    After receiving my Pencil, I immediatly thought about how to travel and use it at my office,
    so I made some designs for my 3Dprinter, and free for anybody to use :)

    The small case and stands have a hollow room to protect the tip from damage.

    I already printed the case and the straight up stand,
    the case is a snug fit, and no rattling of the pen inside :)

    May I ask which 3D printer you have, or what the cheapest one is that would work with this?

    Thanks!

    I have an Ultimaker, and there are some real cheap printers out there,
    but if you don't have a printer, you might want to consider using 3Dhubs, and find someone locally who can print it for you :)

    3Dhubs sounds perfect. Any recommendations on materials and microns (choices ranging from 100-300 microns come up when choosing color on 3Dhubs)?

    Thanks for your help!

    100 microns would give a nice smoother result, 200 or higher would give a nice texture on the outside
    and materials doesn't really matter, ABS and PLA are both strong enough, just choose a color.

    make sure you have the two parts of the case printed upright for the best result.

    I just scale the two stand just slightly,1.01mm this gives a better fit, make sure you use the newer files :)
