3D Printed Desk Grommet
Chris from The New Hobbyist has a black desk but a white grommet for cables to run through, so he decided to model and print a new one with black plastic on his MakerBot. (It’s shown above installed in a white surface for illustrative purposes; it blended in too well with his black desk.) He made his design available through Thingiverse, so if you’re missing a grommet, download and print yourself a brand new one in any size or color!

    That can of black spray paint is too good for some…

  2. Scott Saunders says:

    Why doesn’t anyone sand their printed stuff? Two minutes with a sanding pad would make that grommet look so much better. Is the surface quality some sort of badge of honor? Or is it impossible to sand these things smooth without running into internal porosity?
