Description

This is a water bottle cage for a bicycle.

It is separated into three parts for easy printing. The two rings insert into the bar, and all three pieces are screwed into place at the mounting points on the bike. The bottom of the bar has been reinforced to prevent breaking.

Thanks for sharing! Your blog looks like a good resource, I'll have to check out some of the Blender tutorials.
Congrats! I thought you model was one of the best choices for a 3D Printed Christmas gift! I made a link from here: 3dprintingninja.blogspot.com/2014/12/top-20-free-3d-printed-christmas-gifts.html
Thanks, I'm glad it worked out!

Instructions

  1. Print one of the bars and two of the rings. All three pieces are included in the "full plate" STL. I used a relatively high infill so that the components would not break while riding.

  2. Insert the blocky parts of the two rings into the bar, making sure that the holes line up. Rings work equally effective pointed up or pointed down.

  3. Screw the full assembly into the bike's frame at the mounting points.

I'm using it on my bike. Great! I had some trouble with screws, I needed long screws
Thanks, I'm glad it worked out!
I checked your design of the backing in the UP!'s program and noticed a hairline separation between the backing and the lower lip. This was confirmed when i tried to print it. It's like two separate pieces right next to each other.
Other than that, nice design! Can't wait till the backing is fixed into one solid piece - then I'll print!
I sat down to design this and thought "maybe I should check Thingiverse first...". Thanks for the design! I'm looking forward to printing one of these out.
Thanks for the feedback, hope it works out!

After using it for awhile, I have had the bottom of the bar piece break. I need to come back to this design and work on making that piece stronger.
