The joys that come with gifting are one of the great joys in the world except you share some unpleasant similarities with Charles Dickens’s Ebenezer Scrooge. But the common we face with the giving of gifts; is finding the perfect gift that family and friends will definitely appreciate. For 3D printing enthusiasts or hobbyists, this problem can be solved by going to the garage and creating something iconic from scratch.
Here, we will explore 3D printed pen holders you can create for your personal use or to put a smile on the faces of friends grinding 9 to 5 jobs. Outlined below are some cool ideas you can lift off.

I call the Loko a new age pen holder design due to the features accumulated into the design of this item. The Loko was designed with one thing in mind; creating an aesthetically beautiful holder with a versatile shape to support it. Therefore a look at the Loko will invoke memories of a spider web designed to catch all the pens that comes it way. The body of this pen holder is designed to be meshed and these meshes serve as windows you can stick your pen into.
The canon pen holder is built like an 18th century canon shooter with fine openings for shooting missiles. The cannon pen is designed to be versatile in terms of support and openings for sticking your pens. Both ends are similar and have the capacity to serve as either a base or the space for your pens.

What makes the honeycomb pen holder stand out is its beautifully clustered openings and the set of 4 support bases. It is also quite small which means it will easily fit onto most official desks.
The robotic arm pen holder is definitely a more advanced 3D printing project to pursue. But getting the printing aspects right will leave you with a truly creative masterpiece you can gift out to just about anyone. Taking a look at the design, one will immediately notice the amount of work that was put into creating the digital 3D model and what it will take to print this. The robotic hands holder consists of two robotic grips with fingers and a palm which serve as the holder for your pen. It comes with a square base which provides the needed support.
The MathArt holder is a pen support station created out of multiple meshes which vary in size. It is built to hold approximately 8 pens and its solid support base provides enough anchors for it. The holder is quite beautiful and rather compact which definitely makes it a hit for anyone looking for a small pen or pencil holder to organise a desktop.
On completing the 3D printing of a Voronoi vase, one will immediately be reminded of a Sippy cup without the covering end. Also, this beautiful design comes with a mesh surface which of course spots holes through its length and breadth. It covers a small surface area which definitely makes it the pen holder to have when working with smaller desks or workspaces.
