Can Handle - More Stable
by Eckerput, published
This is a slightly different version of the original Can Clip handle (see the derived from). It still has all the benefits of being the life of the party, the envy of all your friends, and helping you have nice warm hands. The handle itself is larger with a larger base than the original. This allows it to stand up without wobbling. That said, I think the original looks cooler (and prints quicker) so I made a separate thing for this version.
Update: I adjusted the default can height from 122mm to 125mm. This appears to work better now that I've calibrated by machine correctly.
Update 10/14/2014 I added the option to used raised text instead of inset.
If you want some text on the handle, use the customizer. If you don't need text, just download the blank handle. Don't change the can height unless you need to. From my experimentation so far, this works on most 12 oz U.S. cans. You can use a low a fill when printing since there isn't really any strength required. I use 20%. I've only printed it in ABS, but I suspect PLA should work fine. Be sure to let it cool before trying it on your can or you could warp it. It is suppose to require a little tension to clip to the can. You will find it is easiest to clip the bottom before the top.
