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.

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.
