Improved! More robust filter basket and now with coffee scoop and filter holder! ;-)
I like my coffee filtered through paper. It just tastes better to me. The metal screen on the reusable Keurig filter left me wanting... and it was too clumsy to use with the EZ Cup filters I like.
I designed a reusable cup with an integrated basket for good filter drainage. There is also a stand which holds the cup securely while being filled with coffee.
I buy EZ Cup paper filters from e-bay. They were cheap.
I use a Makerbot Replicator Dual.
Object fill = 10%
Layer height = .27
Number of shells = 1
The feed rate is 60mm/s with acceleration turned on. This allows better bridging. There is a significant bridge inside the cup.
I highly recommend you print the test bridge I provided. It is just a test print. It is the entire bridge portion of the design in a quicker print meant for testing/calibrating your printer. I found using a 60mm/s feed rate eliminated droop. My 42mm long, 0.5mm wide, and 2mm high bridges were perfect.
The disk printed with the cap needs to be glued (I use PVC cement) to the inside of the cap. Make sure the smooth part faces the outside. This is where the rubber seal of the hot water spout will mate with the cap, so it needs a smooth surface. This is the main reason this was not printed as one piece with support.
