Day 7 - Holey coin-op bottle opener

Today something very simple:  a minor remix of hoeken's lovely minimalist Coin-op Bottle Opener on Thingiverse, with holes added for style and so you can see the penny better.

Settings: On MakerWare "low" with no raft or supports this takes about 30 minutes to print.

Technical notes:  The boundaries of the holes that I added actually *increase* the print time and plastic used, compared to the sparse honeycomb fill that would have been printed inside if the model had been solid.  Also,  I couldn't fit a US penny into hoeken's design when printed on our MakerBot on "low", so I made the coin slot larger in these designs.
