So if you have been following along, you have seen a few of the 3D prints I’m been working on for travel shaving gear. Originally I started with a couple altoids tin inserts for a couple razors. Then I remixed a container project to make an awesome travel brush container for my Yaqi. I love the travel tube, but I wanted a contain for another brush. To do so, I would have had to redraw and design for the different dimensions.
I wanted something more robust in a design that was easier to adjust the dimensions for different shave brushed, so I went to work and rebuilt my travel tube design from the ground up. I learned a program called OpenSCAD that allows you to programatically create 3D objects and designs. With this new knowledge, I was able to create a design that was easily modified for different height/diameter brush options. I have uploaded to Thingiverse and enabled the customizer so anyone can easily change the values to generate a travel tube in the perfect dimensions for their shave brush.
I still have a few tweaks to do but I wanted to get it up for folks to try. I printed my first tube with this new design using my prototype travel brush handle (that plan isnt ready for prime time yet) and the tube worked perfectly. I hope you find the project useful.
