My first design.
Oh interesting. LoL
Gosh that was interesting. Thanks for sharing !
Even a rather mundane object is a really complicated shape -- at least if you want a super spiffy adapter.
Once you had the design figured out, how long did it take to draw in the program ?
Where can I get 3D things printed?
I took the measurements of the curvature of the arm rest. Took me around 8 hours total to have the design drawn since I have to learn fusion 360 (1st time doing 3D drawing). I've also changed the adapter a few times to make it adjustable.
I spent 2 nights printing since I was new to 3d printing and messed up a few prints and made some small adjustments in between. I might need to make more adjustment to the adapter as I have more time with it and see if the double sided tape can hold up long term. The top design is pretty much complete. I just need to make different adapter for different car now.
I bought a 3D printer and drawn up the design. It's not available anywhere now. I will do some testings and will consider making it available online once I have more time with it.
For those who don’t already know, a regular wide box of tissues fits perfectly underneath the rear A/C console. Easy to reach back and grab a tissue from the front seat and also not have to look at it.
Nice work! What 3D printer are you using? I used to have a MakerBot but it got to be like a BMW... I spent more time working on it then actually using it Now I have a Lulzbot TAZ 6 which has been significantly more reliable.
1. Get 2 regular printers (they print in 2D)
2. Duct tape them together (now its 4D)
3. Now we don't want 4D because that extra dimension will send your prints to a different time or dimension. Remove about 1/4 of the frankenmachine via a large circular saw
4. Regret taking my advice.
You do it for me. I’ll Venmo you.
Only in my teenage years would I need a tissue box THAT accessible. But nice work! You had an idea and made it happen.
Interesting... I will look into this option if it has a cleaner look. However, I feel that is a good spot since when I'm about to sneeze, I don't know if I have time to reach back there plus my hand might be too short for it.
I have Creality CR-10 mini
I ended up going with this setup. I use double sided tape to hold it in place.
Would anyone be interested in buying the stl file and print it themselves? Would $1.99 be reasonable for my time? I can also provide support if you want to make some changes to the current design (different logo cutout, using your initial instead of the Tesla logo, etc.)
I will look into designing a similar holder for the large rectangular tissue box next.
There's never any regret when it comes to destroying printers. They probably weren't working anyway.
