Good point. You'd only want to use this bottle to store dry, solid things, not liquids or powders.

Note: food safety issue... the rough surface texture of filament printed parts/pieces are a nice breeding ground for bacteria. Just an FYI. And since you can't really steam sterilize the item, it poses a problem.

There is now a 150 mm tall version of the bottle available for download.

Why is it left hand threads? dislike..

CreativeTools on Dec 3, 2013 said:

Hi,

Don't really understand your comment. This bottle screws on it's lid in the same manner as 99.9% of all soda bottles out there on the market. You can even use soda bottle screw caps on this bottle and vice-versa. Please clarify your statement so that we can understand better why you dislike the threads on this bottle.

looks great, i just started a forum if you guys can check it out The3Dconnection.com thanks

Nice work. I´m trying to understand how many pieces of anything can i do with a PLA or ABS kilo. Looks like a kilo: 1000cm3. So, if this is right, allmost 50 bottles can be printed with a singe roll. Isn´t?. Thnx

KillerGardevoir on Jul 1, 2013 said:

Not quite. ABS's density is about 1.04 g/cm^3 and PLA's density is 1.24 g/cm^3. This means that 1 kg ABS = 961.5 cm^3 so that's 46 in ABS; 1 kg PLA = 806.5 cm^3 which is 39 in PLA. These densities are average, so some plastics are denser, and some less so, but on average these should be a good estimate.

very nice project!
Can you share the .3dm? It will be cool to modify your bottle!
thx

I wanted to thank you for this design. I am not making the bottle but rather made the cap larger to fit the gallon jugs I get epoxy in. I then made a spout sticking out the end along with a cap to cover it.

I have a hard time with this epoxy filling smaller bottles. Pumps don't work well as the epoxy is thick, pouring from the jug inevitably ends in spills. Nobody makes a high volume spout for these.

I thought it would be a long shot that just scaling this up would fit (thread pitch and all) but after a few tries it fit perfectly. It was almost airtight without modification but I am taking a few extra steps to make it airtight. It's tight enough now that I don't think the epoxy would leak out.

I take it this is PLA, since you show a Rep 2 in the background. That's a nice matte finish for PLA. Did you do anything special to get it that way?

psutex on Apr 11, 2013 said:

Where did you find or how did you get the screw thread definition? I'm looking
for a standard for commercially available bottle screw threads.

CreativeTools on Apr 12, 2013 said:

We didn't find any standard and just cut a normal soda bottle cap in two and took measures with a calliper. Then we reverse engineered it in Rhino 3D.

what settings did you use to print?

CreativeTools on Apr 12, 2013 said:

For the bottle in this image we used the standard medium setting in MakerWare. No changes made to the normal values it has.

Is the plastic food-grade?

laird on Apr 11, 2013 said:

ABS is not food grade, PLA can be (depending on how it's handled and what's added to the PLA for color, etc.). Nylon (Taulman) is medical grade, so should be fine for food.

Insert caveat: if your printer and nozzle aren't clean, YMMV.

Nice, design. Is the seal water tight when you screw it on?

Alejoo on Apr 12, 2013 said:

You can add the plastic that is inside a comercial cup. That will provide the seal you need.

CreativeTools on Mar 26, 2013 said:

Thanks :)
It is quite water tight on the surface but as with most FDM/FFF prints it leaks somewhat. That should be easy to solve just by coating the inside with some resin.

Regarding the screw cap, it can be made easily water tight by putting a rubber membrane or washer.
