This will be re-uploaded to another site once a suitible site is found. I do not believe that I, or the original author (in the case of my derived works) appreciates giving up all rights to own our own designs. Once A suitible location is found, or a temporary one is located, A note will be posted here. Have fun!


This is a simple drink coaster I made. The primary purpose of this coaster is to collect condensation that builds up and drips down.
Quite a bit can be held before it fills up!
It's undergone a few revisions, and seems to be pretty good.

This newest revision has taller walls and deeper channels.

Update: There's now a more can-sized version available. Some parts don't scale down well, so this is a remodel and not just a scale!


1) Print this out.

2) Set a drink on it. ;)

As is it works very well, but if it's not quite, I reccomend:

Additionally, you can use some sticky-cork on the bottom to prevent skidding.
Another enhancement is to use a brush and paint on some rubber silicon (Normally used for calking bathrooms or the like) onto the top for more non-skid.

Well, I wanted to make this, but you replaced the .stl with a frowny face for some reason. Oh well.

Also I find it a bit ironic that you say " I do not believe that I, or the original author (in the case of my
derived works) appreciates giving up all rights to own our own designs." How are you supposed to make derived works if there aren't people who are willing to give up some of their rights?

Do you understand how Creative Commons licenses work? Do you understand the point to this site? I'm guessing "no" on both.

Does this really need to be 110 mm across? Coke can is about 67 mm

Well, like nearly all the things I make, the size (and shape) was the solution to a problem. The problem in this case was the incredible amount of condensation with larger mugs/glasses. The glasses I'm using are just about perfect size for this coaster. For other needs that are bigger, this obviously scales up nicely. =) It doesn't scale down very well, and the hole in the center is not very can-friendly. So I'm uploading a can-version. When I was making the design, using a can with it never occured to me because my existing store-bought coasters are more then adequate to handle cans. Have a great day :)

ps I like it. Thanks!
