Hey I saw your thing and I like it. I also noticed there wasn't a group on Thingiverse dedicated to things for home-brewing related activities so I made one! I just wanted to see if you wanted to join and add your thing to it so we can develop a community of brewers with printers.

Hope all is well!

Try to print some small thing, to see if the calibrations are correct. something like this http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:271736 or any other calibration thing on this site.

if you use PLA plastics use blue painters tape on your print surface for adhesion. i use it for mine without any heat bed and it works great. if you use ABS i had good results with the blue tape and a heatbed on 80 degrees Celsius. but hairspray on glas or kapton tape also worked for me, also with the use of an heatbed.

I recommend you try printing with PLA first, it is much easer to print with. ABS plastics warp easy and can be difficult to set-up your printer just right.

I hope this helps you in your 3d printing adventure :)

Any printing tips for beginner?

Hollow Calibration Cube

This worked out great. I printed 3 of the screw on holders to stack.

Works great for holding my sanitized bottles right before bottling. (also be sure ot sanitize the rack first!)

What can you do with a dry beer bottle?

put new beer in it

Not so good for the replicator 2 build volume. I like the idea, but at 100% scale, it doesn't fit. Am I missing something

I thought the same thing at first-- but even though makerware says it doesn't fit, it does print fine. I just printed a couple of them. Import the STL, when it says it doesn't fit and asks to resize say no, move it "on platform", center it, and rotate Z by 23 degrees. It still doesn't look like it fits-- but it will print fine on a Replicator 2.

can you post the cad files for this? I wanted to mod it to hold coffee cups like a drying rack.

Does it work with wine bottles?

 I don't know, i don't currently have any to try it with. I suspect the arms may be too weak for that kind of weight. I plan on posting the scad files eventually once i clean them up a bit...
