Clay Model and 3D Printed Model - The clay model was built around a cardboard mockup of the circuit board and direct measurements were then taken from the clay model and transferred onto the SolidWorks model. After 3D printing and assembly, the model became fully functional. The design is fun to use and surprisingly comfortable to handle.

The housing is locked in place using a screw and two, threaded, cylindrical shafts--one on each half--that also snap together at the tips.
