3D model description

This is a new version of my popular gimballed drinks holder. The original worked very well but had a small capacity. In short, I kept having to come indoors to fill my glass.

This version uses exactly the same mechanism as the original but is resized to accommodate a fluted or nonic pint glass. It works as well as the original.

I decided to eschew the bowl this time. While this does lose the potential advantage of the insulation from the bowl, it does make the print much quicker and uses far less material.

3D printing settings

Print inmore or less anything. PLA is fine and works well. In some ways it's better than PETG due to its extra rigidity.

I used 0.24mm layer height, 4 bottom and top layers and 3 shells.

I am very much an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to designing. My designs tend to have two things in common

1) They serve a purpose. I like to design functional objects which have a real-world use. 3D printing for art is fine, but it's its real-world application which will take the technology forward
2) Wherever possible I design to be easy to print and try to eschew supports or complex printing; modifying the design where necessary and possible to achieve this.
