Summary

Drinks Dispenser inspired by my favourite animal: The Tapir.
http://www.factzoo.com/mammals/tapir-big-snout-beast.html
The photo shows the model with small "snouts" in the ends.
I have also included a model without theese, since they will break of if you drop the dispenser on a hard floor during an animated party (sorry).

Instructions

Designed using the Discover Radial-Symmetry option in T-Splines for Rhinoceros. Base-geometry created in the Subdivisional-Surfacing-3D-software "Silo" from NeverCenter.com - Also available on Steam.

I like your design, I haven't seen it before i was making my design. Perhapes a little bit overengeneered someone said to my version.
I have made a version for just 4 with glasses. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1891750 .

Drinking for 4

Hi ! How do you print it in 3h ?? Using slic3r and running on new MakerGear M2 now, tooks me about 12h !

I just wouldn't gamble with your health for such a 5-minute joy thing. There is a lot of DIY science below in the comments and anywhere else on the net, but i would say, go with what the government's food&health organisation says about things you eat and drink (from). They test everything very extensive. If you REALLY want to use this model then send it to some CNC place and let them mill it from stainless steel or so.

PLA plastic is proven food safe so if you are printing this, print it in PLA plastic

The dangerous thing isn't PLA itself - its the contaminants in the print. Unless you're printing with very high quality PLA from a very reputable manufacturer, there is likely to be impurities in the filament that could contaminate your liquids. Even if you have pure PLA, many nozzles have traces of lead which make their way into the print and could cause damage.

I dub thee.... the shot-tu-puss

While PLA might be food safe according to some here... Don't forget that most common nozzle, even E3D ones have lead in them! And that's a big fat no no in food safety!

What parameters did you use to do in 3 h and 30 min? Without infill, it was 5h....in printer CoreXY

Hello all, just want to put it out there that pla is food safe, however most of the dyes in it arent usually. So natural is the way to go for safety.

is this food complaint?

wow! This thing is so cool!
I have a cheap knock off 3d printer and I have so much trouble with supports and getting things to print. I set this to print last night and woke up this morning and it is PERFECT! Thanks for sharing a support free, fun design!

LUuuuuUUUUUUlllzzzzz. Awesome.

Comments deleted.

do you print as orientated on the thing? or do you flip and use support?

Just print as is. No support is needed on a standard 3D-printer.

Any one know the print settings used in the gcode?

I personally use an Ultimaker Original, but the orange PLA is printed on a MakerBot at work :-)
You can download the STL-files and slice it in Cura, ReplicatorG, MakerWare or another Slizer.

Print it with high width layer and high temperature so it is stronger and smoother (tiny layer width creates tiny imperfections) so its easier to clean and does not accumulate too much biological society inside.

I made it with 220º PLA and 0.3 layer width, low cooling ( around 35% directly focused )

I printed this using the first DrinksTapir file, but it printed without a bottom. Am I missing another piece?

How does this work when the table isn't perfectly level? does it fill them all equally? I was thinking you could add a small down tube in each glass, inside each a small plastic bb would slide up with the liquid and stop the flow so other shots could catch up. it probably wouldn't seal but it would at least let the others have majority of the flow.

PLA itself is food safe, but the pigments in it (red & black in your case) do not have any food safety information, which is generally the concern with PLA.

Go translucent PLA or T-Glase.

Also 3d printed parts are very porous and have lots of tiny crevices to harbor bacterial/mold growth. With alcohol it isn't so much as a problem but it is very difficult to clean thoroughly.

PLA is a biodegradable plastic derived from renewable resources such as the starch found in corn. ... Commonly, PLA is used for thermoformed applications in the food industry, but is increasing in popularity for the retail industry.

PLA: Polylactic Acid

Characteristics:
•Strength – low impact capacity and brittle
•Alcohol and water resistant
•Recyclable – compatible with existing recycling systems, can be composted, landfilled and incinerates easily

Commons Forms:
•Disposable tableware i.e. cups for cold beverages, carry-out containers, eating utensils
•Deli containers
•Fruit and vegetable trays
•Packaging for refrigeration and deep freezing

Men gælder det også når det er sprøjtet ud på den måde det nu en gang er? Behandlingsprocessen er ikke den samme, og der er en masse riller hvor i svampedannelse kan ske, hvis ikke den renses godt nok?
Jeg har INGEN anelse omkring om det kunne være et problem, jeg spørger kun ;)

Men fed idé Tim :D! (chr M's ven)

Sorry to be a party pooper, but plastic and alcohol are a very unhealthy combination. Don't use this kids unless you want toxic plastic polymers inside you.

...They sell alcohol in plastic bottles....just sayin

Beer is about 5% alcohol. Spirits on the other hand are about 40% and you wont be seeing that sold in plastic bottles.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubra

80 proof, so 40%, sold in plastic bottle, their are plenty of spirits that come in plastic bottles, look down the next time your at liquor store, you'll see em

ABS and PLA are not food safe / drink safe.

Natural (dye-less) PLA is perfectly safe. Any dyes used may not be though.

You can't wash it after use thoroughly tho. Lots of cracks/crevices for bacteria to grow and multiply. Temperatures high enough to kill them will damage the print.

So, possibly ok as a single shot (pardon the pun) use, but dispose of after that.
