Single use 3D print "piggy bank"


#1

I printed this bowl with four peaks and noticed hollows mid print, so I paused the print and added some change then finished the print :grin:

single use as in ad coins and break incase of emergency or you added a coin and its sealed in ?


#3

The coins are captive due to the print. No more can be added. The print would have to be broken to reach the coins.


#4

That’s a rather cool design concept for the bowl too! :relaxed:

Modern ship in a bottle?

Sounds like a perfect candidate for:


#7

Nicely done. I had a project a while back for printing eggs with trinkets inside them, but I could never get the tops of the eggs to print right (you have to mess with fill and bridging for the top few layers, and it just doesn’t look right).


#8

The shape of eggs makes them hard to print…try the PLA+ filament. (Much nicer results!)

Review and couple pictures here:


#9

Cool! Might do that. (I was thinking about printing in PETG, but then no one would be able to open it)


#10

True dat! :smile:


#11

There is that rubbery filliment now that would work :grimacing:


#12

Soooo cool! Now make one with a metal 3d printer


#13

I wish! Aren’t they around 1/4 million USD?


#14

There’s some around $100k. I’ll go dig around the couch for some change.
