WTFFF?! 3D Printing Podcast Hosts Tom & Tracy Hazzard originally designed this collapsible Coffee Sleeve for MakerBot as a promotion. In the month of May, 2016, anyone who wanted to could go to a web page on the MakerBot web site and enter their address to receive a free 3D printed Coffee Sleeve. Now that the promotion is over, we are making the STL file available for all to download and print for themselves. Enjoy!
This product was designed to be printed on a MakerBot 5th Generation Replicator. The parts are very thin, so I print them at 100% infill for strength. Some filaments print better than others, and I find that the MakerBot translucent PLA filaments work best. This is the exact same file that MakerBot used to print the coffee sleeve samples they gave away in May, 2016.
