19 hours later, and there is an obvious layer shift around 8mm that practically ruined this print. Dang, I should have checked it more often.
I cut off the lower half shifted segment and the tray now moves freely, so my tolerances were pretty good otherwise. Regardless, this is a pretty successful design, and no supports needed. I will reprint this in PLA+ (PLA Pro) next time, I think, because my settings for PETG don't seem to be dialed in as I thought. Also, I will print in .2 mm layer height for a little better detail.
Even with the print issues and layer shift, this thing actually works really well. :-)
I also added a Version 2, which is taller to allow some little larger vessels, and is sturdier. Some slight adjustments to the cone and base, also to direct the coffee a little better into the cup at the higher level.
Update to Recommended Print Settings:
PLA + (PLA PRO) FIlament
.20 Layer Height at 60mm/s (100mm/s Linear Advance)
5 Upper and lower layers
4 or 5 perimeters for strength.
I am in the process of printing this as I am typing, so I will post Make photos when it is done (19 hours at .35mm Layer height 50mm/s speed using PETG). You can adjust resolution to meet your own needs, of course.
I recommend printing the "Coffee Pour Over Device.stl" because it has everything optimized for printing in one file, and will fit on most standard 3D printer beds. I also included the individual pieces. I made the cone and base so it could also be used on top of a coffee mug by itself if you wanted to just print those.
I consider this a work in progress, because I haven't put the pieces together to verify all the tolerances. But, hey, it all went together in CAD..... What could go wrong, right?
I got my inspiration from rize0528 "Coffee pour over stand", but built this from scratch. I decided to post this as a remake because I wanted to give rize0528 the credit for putting me on the right track.
