Summary

Bottle caps are like people, some of them are really stubborn. This is one of the general types of adjustable cap wrench (usually for the disabled or elderly people.)
It's got a little wedge for opening soda cans as well.
I made this for my mom who has lower vision due to her age, so it's in bright pink.

Instructions

Print with 100% infill should work fine.
Grab with your palm(see photo), not just with your fingers. It'll make it even easier.

Being nice feels good doesn't it?

could you please design in stl format the robot from the movie iron giant

Someone who can play with zbrush, which I am not familiar with could certainly accomodate that.

Nice! Now I don't need bloody hands to have a bottle cap opened manually XD

That's also what my mom said!

LOL I don't blame her.
