Introduction: Altoids Pool

About: I am a novice cad designer and I own a Prusa i3 MK3. I design things in tinkercad and fusion 360. I also do some coding and electronics. Working on a few other projects probably will be up on instructables eve…

This is my version of Altoids pool it is similar to something I saw in Popular Science magazine.

Step 1: Supplies Used

  • Altoids mint box
  • felt
  • electrical tape
  • chopsticks
  • beads
  • 3-D printed parts

Step 2: Tools Used

  • wire cutters or something to cut chopsticks with
  • scissors for felt
  • tinkercad
  • 3-D printer

Step 3: Design

I started by making a rectangle and cutting cylinder holes in corners. Next I made the triangle. I created a triangle cut a square into the top of it. Copied it shrunk it, extruded it, centered it, and cut it into bigger triangle.

Step 4: Assembly

Print out rectangle and triangle. Cut chopsticks in half. Put electrical tape on bigger ends. Cut holes in felt.
