Summary

This model is a drinking cup made out of one long, spiraled up drinking straw. If you suck on the end the fluid will go from the bottom of the glass down and spiral back up again till it comes out of the end.

It should be noted that cleaning this thing is a pain and it might not be completely watertight when printed with most consumer printers (however mine only leaks so slow it would take several hours for all the fluid to completely leak out).

Instructions

There is no support structure needed here. I printed mine with a layerheight of 0.1 mm on my replicator 2 and it works fine, I have not yet tried other resolutions. If you print it with transparent plastic, you can see the fluid run through the tubes.

Have fun!

Just so you all know, PLA is food safe but you cannot put it in a dishwasher!!! (High Heat)

does the straw work

It works, but when printed on most consumer 3D printers it may leak a little through imperfections between the layers.

I want to print this now!

SO COOL, never seen it before!

Wow, I'm can't wait to try and print this

Lol this really slows done my computer when printing, Tip to slicer users, print with .01 infill for no infill instead of 0, 0 will print nothing.

I bet this will be a pain to clean. I'm totally printing it anyway :) Cool idea.
