Summary

After making a delicious pitcher of mudslides the other day, I disassembled the blender pitcher and put all the parts in the dishwasher. I was disappointed to see that the little tabs that held the cap to the lid of the pitcher had broken.

It took me a few minutes to think about how to model this in OpenSCAD. It took a few more minutes to actually model it. I wish I could say the same about OpenSCAD compile and render. That took over an hour at $fn = 50.

The new cap works and fits very nicely. It prints like a breeze with no issues. I actually think my printed cap is a better fit and a better design than the original. The little nubs I made for locking the cap into the lid are much stronger than the tabs were on the original cap. These nubs will not be breaking off for any reason.

Instructions

Nothing special to do here. Just print it with your favorite settings. I printed mine at 10% fill, 3 shells and a speed of 40 and layer height of .2 using ReplicatorG. With those settings it took about an hour and a half to print out.

Fits an Osterizer Blender just fine. My previous one fell into the blender and got shredded up! I've been making a mess until i found this. Thank you Aaron!

Hey aaron i was wondering if you have an email that i can contact you by. I have some problems with the whole 3D process.

Which Blender? Manufacturer, Model Number, Etc.

My blender is a Hamilton Beach, 10 Blend Master. If you have one, I'd bet the tabs on your cap broke too so you probably need to print this nice replacement cap.

i am working on a replacement part for the Tribest Z-star juicer.. the company doesn't sell it and the unit is very expensive.. and i figure if i can model the part.. i can always print up a spare if needed.. and perhaps like you enhance the strength of it.. I have mind to even build a few accesories fo rit that don't exist.. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1760124
