So simple, so helpful! 3D print a ring to make reading easier! via instructables
This ring will help you hold a book in one hand while you enjoy a hot cup of tea/coffee with the other hand. So 3D print the STL file attached, which matches your thumb size and pick up your favorite Novel and read in bed comfortably without straining your thumb.
In addition you can add the 3D printed part to your key chain as shown in the picture above and carry the ring when you’re out and about, say you’re at the pool trying to catch some sun, while reading and enjoying a cold beverage.
Attached are 3 sizes of the ring in step 3 of the ible for you to select from.
Download the 3D printing software that you printer supports, in my case i am using the Printrbot Simple Metal which use Repetier-Host as a software to
• Slice the STL files attached,which basically means cutting the part into various layers
• And send commands to the 3D printer while printing
In my case I am using the following filaments
• Printrbot White 1.75mm PLA Filament
• And HATCHBOX 1.75mm Green and Orange PLA
Note: the zip file attached in the next step contains 3 sizes, a good idea is to print a couple of sizes files and decide on which one best works for you.
