Just a little gimmick and a printing test:

A sunken coffee mug...


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 ;-)

Just an Idea you could add a plate at the bottom so the liquid wouldn't be slanted. :D like teh Idea

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!)

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...

Handle didn't make well without support (cracked quickly). trying it tonight with support but taking too long to code :-(

Hoping it works...

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