Book stand and yarn needle

Yup, that's what's going on there. The yarn needle was not a project I would have done were I not related to some yarners. (Yarnies? Yarnites?) I guess sometimes you need to go around a sleeve or something and apparently it was easier to ask me to model and 3d printing versus hitting an existing needle with a heat gun and bending it around a can. And apparently it was easier because I went and designed and printed it before realizing I should suggest the can.

And the book stand? Product placement, baby.

I modified DeSign's book stand considerably, but the edits were so trivial that I don't feel they merit their own entry. I changed the angle from 30 degrees to 10 and made the stands half as thick. But it was easy to do this in edit mode in Blender.

Funny thing, when I found this design it was by searching for "book stand" on yeggi. But when doing this write up, knowing the design was on thingiverse, I went there and did the same search and found... not DeSign's. The lesson here is clear. When you're looking for a 3d model hit yeggi first, even if you know what you're looking for is on thingiverse.

  1. I love the morrie patterns created by the grid on the cover of the book when the image is shrunk down for mobile.
