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?
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.

2) Snap the 4 arms into the base
3) Print desired number of bottle-tree-segment.stl. Each segment holds 8 bottles

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

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...
