Easily turn your old soda and drink bottles into wasp traps, cap prints quickly and is reusable! if you print one i'd love to see how many you catch! If you would like to see my design process from start to finish please watch the youtube video https://youtu.be/EpzpM1o6i6k
after a few weeks of use i made some critical improvements. the size of the funnel has been increased as to allow large wasps to enter. the flower is now a wild rose style flower that should print with petal details. the flower is thicker so if the bottle is knocked over it wont shatter. also i incorporated a new cap design that takes less plastic and looks a lot sharper! enjoy!
Printed on a printrbot simple metal at .15mm resolution in PLA (1.75mm). Designed in 123d design and sliced in cura. fill with dishsoap (to break surface tension) and beer (which attracts wasps and not bees).
I used JBijnens soda cap model for threads found here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:806488
