Yes, it's true! You can 3D model a coffee holder and then print it using a 3D printer. This process is remarkably easy and quick, requiring just a few simple steps. First, you'll need to download a 3D modeling software program to use. The software that we are going to use is SelfCAD. SelfCAD is easy to use and there is also an in-built slicer that you can use to slice your designs and generate the G-code to send to your 3D printer.

Next, you'll need to sketch out the basic design for your coffee holder, including details like the shape of the handle, the size and shape of the cup cavity, and any other necessary features. After that, you can use the 3D modeling software to build your coffee holder design from scratch or import a preexisting template that you've found online or elsewhere.

Finally, once your coffee holder design is complete, all you have to do is hit the "print" button on your printer, and within minutes your brand-new coffee holder will pop right out!
