This is a single stave for building a barrel using 24 staves total ...

It's just another learning curve for SolidWorks ...

This is another of many entries to the makezine.com/go/makerbot contest ...



This is a single stave ... Using your CupCake MakerBot Print 24 of these and then rubber band them together into a barrel. Might use some kind of human consumptionable adhesive to glue'em together into a cup.

or ... cheat and get the full barrel and just print that and use it for a cup.

If you successfully make this with a 3D printer please send me the build-file and machine type so it can be uploaded here for others to use.

Cool, good job. :)

Thanks for sharing

So far, I've only printed one Barrel Stave in the original position and it wasn't good at all, so I recommend rotating it 97.5 degrees clockwise so it looks like this: "(".
The print was very good this way no support needed at all.

Just the kind of things we enjoy, good looking and realistic (like) making.
