You can never have too many markers, but you can run out of space!
How about a 3D printable, modular design that allows you to print and stack as many modules as you need? Printed from PLA and on demand, this results in a product that saves on transport emissions, uses industrially compostable PLA and can grow every time you buy a set of markers.
Each module holds 24 markers (or pens). With magnetic sides allowing you to snap them together, you won't want to stop rearranging them!
Starting with a baseline of three, you can wall mount them or build them up on a desk. With different options, such as a plant module, you can customise as you desire.
The front panels are finished with a touch of fabric, reminiscent of artistic canvas, and add a touch of natural contrast to the completely 3D printed body. The spacing of the pens is designed around basic human factors so that a marker can be pulled without disturbing the surrounding pens.
Fancy making a set yourself?
This design is free for you to make! Just use the download link below which includes the latest version and the instructions.
Copic Classic version coming soon!
