Having finally gotten my printer to produce clean prints, I decided it was time to celebrate, which means making the obligatory shot glass :-)

I decided I wanted something reprap related, so I designed a shot glass in the shape of a hollowed out, tapered reprap teardrop.


Print, fill with your favorite alcohol, drink.

Actually, unless you coat it with food grade urethane first, I wouldn't suggest using it.

The walls are just a fraction more than 2mm thick, so I printed it with 2 extra shells, and an extrusion width of 0.424, which results in a filament spacing of 0.333, and produces a solid wall with no center gap.

Natureworks PLA is supposedly FDA approved for food contact and storage. Not sure if that stands after pigments are added and it's extruded into filament.

Short-term testing shows that they hold alcohol, while long-term testing shows a major design flaw - all the alcohol leaks out of the top, and they need repeated refilling.

Was it alcohol-tight? ;)
