3D model description

I designed my own ergonomic 3D printed bottle opener.
How to open a bottle? Open your sixpack with 'Six'!

I thought this could be one of my useful and cool 3D prints.

To open a bottle, there's a specific force needed to remove the cap from the bottle. The 3D printed part tends to break easily at some points.

I designed a bottle opener in the shape of a '6'. There are no sharp corners where your hand is on. The rounded shape is also very strong as opposed to right angles.
The opening for the coin has also some chamfers at one side to avoid right angles and make it stronger. Earlier designs breaked at that point while removing a cap from a bottle.

I used only 20% infill, but i printed it with 5 outline layers to create a strong object.

IMPORTANT: This bottle opener works with a (€0,20) coin with an outer diameter of ø22.20mm and a thickness of 2.1mm.

I also added the FreeCAD file(s), so you can alter the model. You have to download FreeCAD, it's free.

I have studied industrial design and with a 3D printer at home, i create products and models as a hobby. I'm specialized in 3D printing PLA, PETG and PolyFLEX. Have a look at my 3D model portfolio!

I also create (tutorial) videos to become better every year and i like to share this knowledge together with my 3D printing experiences with the world at several video platforms!
Have a look at my website https://3dpartsforyou.com!

Notes: not satisfied after buying? Get back your money or request a free altered model! Dimension requests are accepted. (I only send 3D prints to countries within the EU.)
