Espresso coffee cup with eight handles,

Modeled in Rhino3D,
3D-Printed in a ORCA RepRap just to test the machine.

4 hours printime,

Part of the "One Coffee Cup a Day Project"


The OctoCup was designed to be printed in Glazed Ceramics:

If you print it in PLA you might consider:

a) add support material for the handles
b) print it watertight (at least the inside surface)
c) since hot coffee might melt the PLA, consider drinking ice coffee instead

here is a video of the printing process: http://cunicode.com/octocup-reprap/

btw, for the support I set :

  • not cross hatch
  • flow rate : 0.9 (was already easy to remove)
  • gap : 1.0
  • Exterior only
  • minimum angle : 50°

I also discovered later that the "interface infill density" have an influence on the density of the support, it was at 0.5 but an export at 0.2 showed a more sparse support, good to
know :)

This would work really interestingly with a frostruder+clay

I would love to have a similar coffee cup with one handle and eight cup-parts. :)

Ha! Now let's see what Sherlock Holmes can read from the placement of that cup!

PS: This is in reference to an episode in the new Sherlock Holmes TV series. Sherlock uses the placement of a coffee cup (and its handle) on a victim's coffee table to extrapolate the victim's left handed-ness.

Your cups look great! Can't wait for the other ones :)
