2L watering spike v3 by eagleapex Jul 13, 2012

Description

An updated version of my previous watering spike, now easier to print.

I removed arkatipe's model in v2 because it was unnecessarily high poly for this use, and I wanted a thicker wall.

Update: use v3! It's better!

I'm not a fan of Makerbot at all and I don't want Stratasys to use my designs. Email me for the files.

Why are there no files? Has the project been moved elsewhere?

Printing with ABS plastic and then dipping it in Acetone makes it really watertight... The acetone dissolves the plastic rapidly, but a quick dip and then drying it off works really well. The part will be soft for a few hours, but regain its strength once the acetone has fully evaporated.

Instructions

I printed it at a slightly higher temperature than normal to make sure it was fully watertight.

The .scad dependencies are included again if you want to edit it.

Update the title to v3! Impressive work on the twist-on cap. Fits nice and snug, no leakage so far. If you don't mind me asking, what did you design this in? The twist on part specifically.

This was all OpenSCAD. You can see the objects that it was derived from, basically other OpenSCAD projects. I'm glad you like it!
