A printable corkscrew with a classic look.
It is currently untested so I am very curious to find out if it can work. There is no question that it will break eventually :)
Download the Corkscrew1.STL file and print it.
Optional - Printing strategy:
If you have a filament deposit printer like me (Ultimaker) this tall and slender print will rely on you having correct layer cooling time and temperature settings. I used a 5 second layer cooling time for 1.2 mm wall thickness at 0.2 mm layer thickness. When the printer reached the shaft I dropped the print temp 20 C manually.
I am not so sure that a higher layer cooling time will be beneficial but dropping the layer thickness to 0.1 mm would probably give a better result, it would however probably double the time required to print the corkscrew.
Please comment if you try it, we want to know the results!
