"Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!"
This is a replica of Jean-Luc Picard's teacup from Star Trek: The Next Generation. I based the model on images found here:
We still have a ways to go before we can instantly replicate hot cups of tea, but you've got to start somewhere, right?
Regarding images: if someone wants to make a rendering of this thing with a glass cup and black plastic handle, that would be awesome.
NOTE: I'm uploading this as a prop only, not as an actual drinking vessel. Do not drink stuff out of it!
I have little experience with actual 3-D printing. I just made this model for fun. If anyone could provide instructions on how to print it, that would be nice.
That said, it's pretty easy to understand. First you make the cup, then you make the handle, and then you snap the handle onto the cup.

So what's this mean?
We're sure johngineer would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
