This has been an on-again off-again project for almost a year and a half – COVID isolation finally bought me enough time at home to push it over the finish line.
One of my favorite youtube channels (Drawfee) is a group of people I’ve wanted to do something for, for a long time. They are professional artists/animators/cartoonists who take silly prompts and improv draw.
I debated about an appropriate gift for a long time, and then I thought that personally designed boxes for their Wacom tablet styluses (the devices they use to draw into Photoshop) would be a fun gift.
The lid is .02" PETG which is flexible enough to allow a slight arch. FYI in the picture, I left the protective film on because I’m going to ship them, I want to protect against scratches. The actual PETG is beautifully transparent.
I think I’ve finally fully dialed in the process of creating effective 3D engrave on birch plywood, planning on posting a process topic on that later.
I also 3D printed a quick standin of the stylus for funsies.
I don’t know if anyone else has a wacom stylus – if you want I’ll send you the files to make these. And, if anyone’s curious, this is a link to the hinge, and this is a link to the latches, both of which I bought on Amazon.
