Nice model! Only improvement I would suggest is removing the connecting "bars" between the two halves. It would allow you to print the two halves on their sides (or one side at a time) and might actually improve its strength (though it doesn't really need that as a pen holder, lol). It would also improve print times, but I'm not sure by how much. Could also improve the finish of the print.

I might have a go at cutting it in Blender and uploading it as a remix (if I can figure out how to do that!).

Yes, but that would require two extra mounting holes and screws because otherwise you'll just have two separate hangers swinging around independently. I prefer a model that can be printed and mounted as one piece.

Hello, Thank you very much, a use this holder for about 1-1.5 years.. But I want to customize somethings. Can you make it customizable ? For ex. : I want to give more radius, so that pens wont fall down

Making this customizable would require building a new model from scratch. I might do that if I find the time, but it won't be for the immediate future.
In the meantime you can rescale the model to change some properties within certain limits. For instance if you want the holders to have a larger radius without affecting the width, you can scale up the model in the Y and Z axis by the same factor. Most slicer programs should allow this.

Thanks a lot
