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!

I think you could get this into the cork, but it will likely just delaminate when you try to pull it out. That z-axis is very weak for both pla and abs. Very nice CAD though!

nice work Jacknil but have you tested it yet ?

I doubt that PLA/ABS could push through cork, but this is certainly a beautiful object to print. Perhaps it could then be cast into metal?
