As applied research in the field of 3D printing at home I’ve been looking for objects that could benefit from hyper-customization. I realized few things in a household are only used by one single person, but someone’s favorite coffee mug is often one of them – so I made one that only fits my own hand. To capture my grip I covered a cilinder with clay, squeezed it and then 3D scanned the result with my Structure Sensor.
