A holder for citadel acrylic paint bottles.

The holder is fully parametric (number of rows/columns, hole diameter, height, etc. can all be changed with just one variable each) and multiple holders can be stacked. For extra stacking stability the holders can be printed with support pillars.

NOTE: the support pillars have not been fully tested yet and don't print properly on some printers. Also even without them the holder should offer more than enough stability.


  • I had trouble printing the support pillars when slicing with cura (12.12a). Slic3r worked without issues.

  • If you want to print a holder with support pillars then print "citadel bottle holder 2x2 with support pillar.stl" first to make sure the pillars get printed right.

  • Also the holder is fully parametric: everything from the number of columns and rows to the diameter of the holes can easily be changed; however, the placement of extra support pillars currently only works properly with uneven numbers of rows. To do so just enter the CoffeeScript sourcecode (Citadel_Bottle_Holder.coffee) into CoffeeSCad at http://kaosat-dev.github.com/CoffeeSCad/.

I printed the 2x2 with support on my makerbot2 and the top peg is way too big to fit into the bottom holes. how do I scale it down the pegs in

That's strange but you should probably try increasing the variable pegSizeReduction using CoffeeScad (see the instructions). However, the support pillars still might have some issues in general, so you might want to try without them.
