Just a little gimmick and a printing test:

A sunken coffee mug...

I am sorry, but I usually gulp it down within a few seconds.
A good coffee initially has 97.3°C, so standard PLA might indeed soften a bit...
Does the mug endure the heat of hot coffee? I'll likely use ABS to test it (pretty sure none of my options are officially food-safe O WELL IT'S FOR SCIENCE!)
Handle didn't make well without support (cracked quickly). trying it tonight with support but taking too long to code :-(

Hoping it works...

Instructions

The main part is "SunkenCoffeeMug_Top", but the snipped off bottom, as well as the complete mug, for reference, are available too. The bottom part comes in two different versions, a "even more sunken mug" and the original, snipped bottom, rotated for direct print.

The image shows a 60% size printout. I really tried hard printing this at 100%, without any support, but I failed. The handle itself does not provide enough stability. Because nothing else helped, I added a custom, 100% fill raft under the handle.

But still, above 4-5cm, the handle tends to warp up and the printing head kicks it from the platform.

Anyway, at least my children like it ;-)

 Totally going to make this for my coffee-addicted work buddy :D
