#3DPrinted Menorah – Hanukkah Rocktopus by Bcheirif #3DPrinting

Hanukkah Rocktopus by Bcheirif Thingiverse

While it might be too late to order a menorah online for this year’s Hanukkah, it isn’t too late to print one out for yourself!

Thanks to Benji Cheirif to sharing with us his great Hanukkah Rocktopus design! Here’s what he had to say: “I designed a hanukka menorah using the lulzbot rocktopus. Seeing as hanukka is almost over I thought maybe you would like to post this for people to print out and use themselves.”

Bonus points to Benji for scheming up a method to use automation to light the shamash so his 3D printer can participate as well….

NOTE: Please don’t print this out of ABS or other highly flammable polymers if you intend to use candles that are not LEDs! Otherwise you’ll learn more about the Festival of Lights: Incendiary Edition than you might intend.

Fully functional Rocktopus Menorah. The candleholders are meant to fit into the tentacles. They accept up to 10mm diameter candles. I also designed a flame extruder that holds a lighter.

Happy Hannukah!
