Take your best guess!

This is a customizable prism map of the contiguous United States. Values are represented by the extruded height of each state. (An extruded polygon is a prism.)

You can put your own data points into a customizer to create your own prism map!! We did just that!!  Remembering that we are in Colorado, what do you think this map could represent?!

Octopus Phone Stand

I’ve been looking around for the right stand that I can keep at the office on my desk!  We are rather fond of octopus here at ItWorks so it seemed appropriate to have a octopus phone stand to go along with our other octofriends!   And of course it must be in pink!  Found the designs on Thingiverse .   They say you can use adhesive to hold it down and keep it from moving about, so I’m thinking one of those command adhesive strips would do the trick!  Made with pink PLA filament!

Pretty snazzy, if I do say so myself!!

Laser cat!

Fun with 3D printing, because who doesn’t need a laser cat?!  This file can be found at Thingiverse  The original laser cat looks much like the one below, but as 3D Printing goes there is always a lot of fun to be had with tinkering around with designs!  Someone added lasers to the poor laser’less cat here

This was printed on a Lulzbot Mini!  Available for sale HERE!!

Cord keeper!

If you are anything like most of us, you probably have a few cords on your desk!   A USB or some sort of phone charger, speaker wires, ect..     I had a USB for my phone plugged into the back of my computer and draped up to my desk for the longest time.  Every time I unplugged my phone, it would drop back onto the ground.  Let me tell you, that got irritating really fast.  Although I am a little more flexible for having to move around and contort myself to reach behind my computer! *I dub it USB yoga!*

One day while browsing around on Thingiverse for cool designs, I stumbled across this cord keeper.  There were a couple of files with it.  One has screw holes so you can mount it to your desk or wherever it is that you put it and one does not.  I printed both and settled with the one that didn’t have the screw holes because I didn’t want to leave marks all over the desk should I decide to move it around.  I attached it with command adhesive strips so that it could be moved without damaging my desk.  However, if this were in a place that you wanted it to stay permanently, the screw holes would be handy!
