3D model description


The "CloseCan" project was born in my head one day when I was very embarrassed by a half-full can that I had to put away: it was impossible to put it back in the fridge without closing it again because the bubbles would leave. As it is very complex to close a can, I then imagined a solution to solve this problem that affects many people on a daily basis.

Thus, "CloseCan" allows the cans to be hermetically sealed. It is suitable for several types of cans as shown in the pictures. It does not fit 15 cl cans, but there is no point in closing such a small can. Once the cans are closed, you can store them in any position. (including horizontal or upside down)

CloseCan is ideal for a wide range of situations, from hiking to camping to days at the beach.

CloseCan consists of two parts that are easy to print, without support:

  • The part called "CloseCan Top" that must be printed in classic PLA/ABS, (in orange on the picture)

  • The part called "CloseCan Joint" that must be printed in flexible PLA/ABS/TPU. (in green on the picture)

For assembly, do not glue the entire length of the joint, just a point of glue to hold it in place. Be careful to place the joint in the right direction: the bevelled side must be facing outwards.

I strongly recommend filing / sanding the object. Remember to clean it thoroughly to prevent plastic particles from accidentally ending up in your drink.

Finally I make the SolidWorks 2017 files available in the compressed folder if you want to create a modified/improved version of this project. However, please write me a note at the address below.

Feel free to contact me by email if you need a maker for a project or for any other reason:

Finally, if you like this model, don't forget to drop a "like", subscribe, comment or even post a make!

Have a good day.
