When I joined a new office back in 2013. I was in need of a pencil jar, so I told to myself " Let's make one". Using grasshopper I was able to make a definition that helped me design + optimized + produce info for assembling. Here is the whole process in more detail (link).
I have created few samples for you guy to try out. It's super fun.
Step 1: Which One Do You Want?
Choose anyone you would like to make. Download the pdf file or the dxf file ( if you want to laser cut it).
Step 2: Things U'll Need
So I made few samples. All you got to do is choose a sample of your liking.
You'll need the following.
1 A4 size printer and papers.
2 Cardboard or any hard paper ( >= 150 gram or < 2 mm )
3 Glue to paste.
4 Scissor and radial a cutter.
Step 3: Do It Like This
Simply download the PDF.
1) Print all those six A-4 size pages on a standard paper.
2) Paste those pages on a card board or any hard paper of you liking.
3) Cut the profile. This is the longest and the most trying part. But don't worry, it'll soon end.
4) Assemble the pieces according to their labels.
And that's it!!
Step 4: Congrades
Now you have your very own pencil jar.
plz don't forget to take plenty of picx and share it. I can't wait to see it.
