Coffee Bag Lid

Coffee Bag Lid by Jinja Jan 7, 2013

Description

Attach a screw cap to the top of your coffee bag so you can quickly access your coffee. The pour is easier to control with the smaller width hole.

All the files printed out fine for me except the lid..any suggestions? It tries to print out a raft that is not right. without the raft it just shoots plastic in the air and makes a mess....

great design!

FUCKING BRILLIANT

Instructions

Print one of each of the following...

CoffeeBagLid
CoffeeBagClip
CoffeeBagLock
CoffeebagCap or CoffeeBagCap2

Open your coffee bag and hold the CoffeeBagLid in place at the top of the bag so that there's enough of the bag for the CoffeeBagClip to hold. While holding the CoffeeBagLid in place with one hand, pry open the "tongs" of the CoffeeBagClip with the other hand and slide it over the CoffeeBagLid. The lid should now be loosely held in place. Slide on the CoffeeBagLock to lock the clip into place. Screw on the CoffeeBagCap!

It's not the easiest thing to attach, but when it's on it's secure. If anyone has any good ideas to improve the attach process then please let me know.

UPDATE: 17th Jan, 2013. I've added a taller cap for easier use, CoffeeBagCap2. It's from thingiverse.com/thing:41981 but it has an identical radius/thread.

UPDATE: 17th Feb 2013. I've added pourcap.stl, a cap that allows me to pour ground coffee in a controlled manner into a reusable kcup.

awesome idea!

You can use the small cap from http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... for this too. Maybe I should just add it.

nice idia

I've made a derivative that I think improves the ease of use. I've added a wider lid that's big enough to accommodate a table spoon and can pour larger things like corn flakes. Let me know what you think.

Printed beautifully, works beautifully - awesome!

This is great, holds the bag really nicely. I'd agree with richrap's comments about the ridge on the clip, but it's very useful as-is.

RichRap on Jan 7, 2013 said:

Awesome! - Going to print one (or more) now - thanks for the great design, I'll be using it tomorrow morning :)

Jinja on Jan 7, 2013 said:

Just print one for now. I'm going to try another design that might do away with one of the pieces. Let me know if you have any usage problems (mine are doing great so far)

Just going through the Newest listing and saw this and have to say, this is too good . . . Nice design ! ! !

I don't even drink coffee, but this is awesome!

Jinja on Jan 7, 2013 said:

I suppose it could be applied to other bags, not just coffee. I could supersize it and add it to cereal bags. Or rice bags. Or Maltesers bags, yum! No, not Maltesers, they don't last long enough to necessitate a lid. Any other uses?

That one would be worth posting at Quirky.com It's the sort of thing they like taking to market, would stand a decent chance of getting picked.

Jinja on Jan 7, 2013 said:

Thanks everyone. I've never heard of Quirky before, I'll check it out, thanks. I've just had another idea that might be easier to clip to the bag. I'll try it out.
