Printing Recomendations:

Layer Heights: 0.2 mm

Support: None needed

  • Print the Can grip using PLA for appropriate rigidity. 
  • Print the Cup Handle using ABS if you are going to use it for cofee or other hot liquids - PLA can warp. 
  • Forceps - Add some sticky, smooth surfaced material to the tips to add extra 'grip' to the.
