I’ve wanted to make a MakerBotted crayon mold for about as long as I’ve owned a 3D printer. Now this is a reality thanks to Thingiverse citizen CodeCreations. CodeCreations1 has shared his STL’s, OpenSCAD source code, and detailed directions for making crayon molds.
CodeCreations’ method involves using a printed container into which plaster of Paris is poured. When the plastic is removed, it leaves a plaster mold with triangular crayon “troughs.” Then it’s a matter of melting crayons, pouring the wax into the mold, and waiting for them to cool.
Error - could not find Thing 34274.
- Who has one of the awesomest profile picture evar! [↩]
