Lots of people liked the original Moodmonster, but I decided that I could do with something both more durable and more practical.
So, just before I lost access to a lasercutter, I decided to create an acrylic pen pot from Moodmonster.
Step 1: Materials and tools
I used black because the choice of colours in the acrylic we had spare was black or a sort of... beige. I didn't think about how hard it would be to photograph a relatively featureless, shiny, black box...
I also used some two-part epoxy, masking tape and a small file.
Step 2: Files
It's not great, but it's the software supplied with the laser cutter, and there was no spare budget for something decent. Still, at least you don't have to draw it yourself...
The MCM files are attached to this step as a zip folder, but I've also made a screen-shot of the file, so you can create your own version in the software of your choice.
Step 3: Cutting
Follow the guidelines for your laser cutter, but I made sure to leave the protective film on the acrylic during cutting to keep the surfaces clean, then peeled it off just before gluing.
