A friend of mine had a double coffee maker machine where he could simultaneously make two pots of coffee or one pot of coffee and one pot of tea. He loved this machine but the water valve broke on one side and he asked me if I could make a replacement - so I did!
I printed four of them at one time (2 rows by 2 columns) since I don't use a fan and the objects are so small. Since they are so small printing four of them only took 20 minutes so now my friend has 3 extras for the next time one breaks.
I printed these in PLA and was suprised that it worked in his machine but he hasn't had any problems with it.
I sanded it afterwards to round the sharp edges to make it look like the original part. Can you tell which one is the original and which one the replacement?
