This is a wine glass holder with a strap to go around your neck. This can be very convenient at wine festivals and wine tastings. It leaves two hands free to reach into your purse two pay for that great bottle of wine you tasted (or to grab more munchies).


print one "wine_holder_base_111115b.stl".
print two "wine_link_111115a_ctr.stl" links.
snap together so that the curved side of the link faces the wine glass.

The last image shows how to attach the neck strap to the links.

A thicker ribbed webbing works better than a thin ribbon. For a wider ribbon fold it in half lengthwise so it fits in the slot. Melting the ends of the ribbon will keep it from fraying. Pull test it a bit to make sure that the strap will not pull out.


mk_wine_base_111115b.mac is an ANSYS macro to create the geometry of the base and mesh it.

mk_wine_link_111115a.mac is an ANSYS macro to create the geometry of the link and mesh it.

To convert the ANSYS elements to a .stl file do this:

! create the .stl file
! see http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4421 for the following macro
! ansys_2_stl_101012a.mac,'wine_holder_base_111115b','x'

awesome! i was searching for something like this and was just a couple minutes away from designing one myself, thanks :)

you're welcome and glad you like it

Brilliant! This should be featured, funded, and mass produced.

Glad you liked it. I took a quick look at Amazon and there are already some out there. Look for "wine glass holder necklace"

love the ball joints

the spherical shape of the snap fit pivot appears to have some advantages:

  • snaps together easiliy

  • hard to pull apart

  • smooth pivoting

details 1.5 mm projection of the sphere and 1.5 mm depth of dimple
