10mm Can Holder

All mechanics, probably anyone with any set of tools, know that you can never find a 10mm socket or wrench when you need it. Now you can always have one available!



This design makes for a beautiful print, and will make a fantastic gift! You can find it on thangs and it will hold a 12oz can with ease.


I printed this using 20% infill and used eSun Light Brown PLA. I used supports only for the handle and blocked off all other areas. Supports were set in Cura to touch the build plate only.

To finish this, I used Dupli-Color Filler/Primer and sanded it as needed. After that had dried and was ready for the first topcoat, I used a tack cloth and canned air to clean the object. The topcoat is Krylon Fusion Metallic Silver. It has 4 coats. I used a Krylon Fusion Gloss Clear for the sealer.


Instead of painting, you can print this in a silver silk PLA or other colors.


I will be excited to give this out this Christmas, and I can't wait to see their reaction! It is a great design, easy to print and to finish.


Happy printing!
