Introduction: 3D-Printed Tapers
Want to stretch your piercings but can't justify buying new tapers for every size? Print em! This is an even easier project than the 3D-Printed Bicycle Handlebar Caps I did before. The same resources are required, a TechShop Membership and the 3D Printer SBU (Or access to a 3D Printer) as well as some sort of design software like Autodesk Inventor.

Step 1: Design
It couldn't be simpler.
Well it could, but this is a good way to start off.
Step 2: Print It, Fool!
For this print I used skeinforge and the Thingomatic makerbot. Software is replicator G, used default settings without a raft.
Step 3: Printed.
And that's pretty much it! With this basic step-by-step one can create all sorts of shapes and sizes of tapers or plugs depending on your need!
