1x bottle-tree-base.stl
4x bottle-tree-base-arm.stl
2) Snap the 4 arms into the base
3) Print desired number of bottle-tree-segment.stl. Each segment holds 8 bottles
4) Screw a segment onto the base, and then each additional segment onto the previous segment.

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!

Any printing tips for beginner?

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 :)

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...
