    Smile RAZOR CASE

    When my Father passed a few years ago, one of the things I inherited from his personal effects was an accessories case. Now, I have less need for a jewellery box than even my Father did so, as much as I liked this item, it sat in a drawer unused . . . until now.

    I got the idea of turning it into a case for some of my razors from our very own @MikeB52's 7 day set. I even sounded him out about helping me realize my idea, and I am sure it would have been fabulous. But some recent viewings of what can be done with 3D printing got me thinking, and this is the result.

    That is an excellent repurposing of something with sentimental value.

    Is that one complete 3-d print or did you do it in sections?

    This is very cool! I have two nice boxes that I want to repurpose, one for SRs and one for SE/DEs, but I hadn't been able to figure out how yet.

    I'm curious how you have access to a 3d printer, also.

    A place up the street had a 3D printer. They would printout numerous items of all kinds. The machine was always running.
    It's a great way to create a template for a duplicator router, which was my interest in one.
    Thank you, this is a great example of totally random parts now available... opens up possibilities!

    There are also printers that use metal and can make precision parts. Crazy!

    Edit: * There are companies that will print it for you. Which is nice, considering the money, time, and expertise necessary to have and use one.

    It is one piece. I did nothing except provide a rough sketch and feedback to the person who programmed the printer.

    I found a guy through a FB page dedicated to Canadian Wet Shaving. His name is Trey Niebergall, and he is in SK. The actual printing took 14 hours. My total cost was $45.00 including shipping.
