3D Printed Home: Sponge Holder

3D Printed Home: Sponge Holder

Do you keep your sponge on something to let it dry? I do! Unfortunately my last sponge holder melted, time to 3D print a new one! 

It took about three (3) hours to print the two parts for this model and cost about $1.18 in plastic. Both filaments are PLA and I printed with a nozzle temp of 199ºC at 55mm/s with a 0.28mm layer height.
