So the popularity of the first tentacle phone holder has led to my making no less than five move of these guys in different colors: purple, light green, light pink, crimson, and orange.
In the meantime, I have been thinking a lot about stepping a little away from 3D printing and getting back more into scratchbuilding. Why am I doing something that is more difficult, less precise, and potentially less attractive. It is back to that “process, not product,” mantra. Yes, I could just have my printer print out tiles while I sleep, but I am not actually creating anything in those moments–the designer did. So I am trying to get back into more hands-on aspects of the hobby and hope to share more of the elements of this change soon.
