I made this for the launch of 3D-Fuel's beer filament "Buzzed."
Included are a clean version and one that says "buzzed." There are some features I may revisit on this model (key ring placement, length, text location), but it works well enough for now.
If scaling is off, the largest dimension should be 44mm.

Please be careful! I wanted a compact design, but there isn't a lot of leverage. I was careless and cut my finger on a bottle cap.

Add the penny right around 70% completion (if using raft, not sure without).

Thanks for this thing, i was able to print it well using PLA and ABS (red PLA yellow ABS and white PLA on same print).
works like a charm at 40% infill with a raft. cant wait to buzz out.

i stopped it at 3.45mm to insert an old copper 1969 penny > as suggested by jjlink > Thanks dude

For the Buzzed stl file; if you use Simplify3D and go to the advanced tab and tell it to stop printing at 3.45 mm. Then print it; when it finishes put the penny in. Then go back to the advanced tab un-check the stop printing at box and turn on the start print value to 3.45 and print the rest of it. Note: these values are for printing without a raft. Also use a penny dated prior to 1982 so that it really made of copper not zinc.

Thanks for the helpful comment! My boss has Simplify3D so we'll definitely give that a try when we print some more of these.

The only issue I had printing these is the filament tends to glob-up where the penny meets the plastic where the letter "U" is printed. This seems to be due to a small gap between the penny and the hole it goes in. I got a good print however as you can see from the photo; because it mashed down the glob as it covered the penny. Maybe the penny hole needs to be just a tiny bit smaller to avoid this. I made three of these with a Buzzed filament sample. Thanks
