One Handed Bottle Opener by MacGyver Nov 14, 2012

Description

At this point this design will NOT WORK in plastic. I'm going to have to hit the drawing board again because the little lip that grabs the bottle cap keeps snapping off.

Saw something similar to this in aluminum and thought I could make that on my makerbot in plastic.

The other side can be used to open aluminum cans.

I've been thinking of using a dime to keep it smaller.

Try incorporating a penny into your design (or some other readily available piece of metal)

So, with a view to make it work, what is the problem that makes it DOES NOT WORK?

Instructions

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.

Everything below this line is irrelevant...

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.

You put your index finger through the hole and use your middle finger as the trigger to pop open your drink.
