The other side can be used to open aluminum cans.
It looked good in theory but it DOES NOT WORK. If you somehow print one that does work please let me know. I'm going to have to hit the drawing board again because the little lip that grabs the bottle cap keeps snapping off.

Print and hopefully it will be strong enough to open a bottle. Clearly this would be better make in metal. However I think we should be able to do it in plastic and get several uses out of it.
I've printed it at 10% infill = failed, 25% infill = failed. Trying again at 50% infill... FAILED.
Print it in metal because plastic does NOT work.
