Hi! I love this rotary storage solution. But my printer has a really low print resolution (14x14x14cm). Could be possible to have a remix with fewer slots per level? Something like your first version (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3009418) with a diameter shorter than this one. Thanks!

Hi! I would really like a removable & replaceable bottle clip design for this paint holder, it would mean that any breakages could be fixed without needing to reprint the whole body section, just the clip and it would also mean that no supports would be needed. I wanted to run it by you first in case this is something you preferred doing on your side as it is your model, if not would it be possible to get the original 3D file to aid in this process? If not that is fine, I will remix the .stl and share. Thanks!

Dang I use createx... Any chance to modify if I provide a caliper measurement?

Sorry for the late reply. reply if you decide to make this one and I will test it out

This was a Createx wickid colors bottle 2floz

diameter 34.75mm this gives +-0.10mm
height 98.25mm to top of cap
height to rounded shoulder 77.20mm

4030 2oz/60ml balancing clear bottle
81.5mm to shoulder
102.27 to lid
36mm diameter

5618 air brush cleaner large bottle 8fl oz 240ml
diameter 52mm
to shoulder 140.25mm
to lid 163.2mm

This is wide off what I thought what I want to add. Which is basically a 36mm variant with the same height. I have to check how hard it will get to change the model first. Stay tuned.

A quick check shows that it will be impossible to staple different sized variants without "adapters" in between. I dunno what I am going to do about that. For me it is currently sufficient as is.

Any chance to get the original files so I can remix this in 2017 inventor?

I can make my own if I have to, I'd just rather not start from scratch lol

Or I could just scale up until it fits

I plan to make other ones anyway. What is the diameter of those bottles (and general shape?).

Ill have to take dimensions when I get off work.

Do you set this on a lazy susan to be able to get to all the bottles? Brilliant design btw!

This contains a rotary base element and "adapter" which lets you freely turn it. No other stuff needed.

Looks great. I am trying to work out how it spins, is it just plastic resting on plastic within a sort of circular track?
Does it spin freely or rotate when physically manipulated? I am thinking it would be really interesting to have a bearing incorporated into the design.

The ridge on the base plate goes into the groove on the underside of the glider piece. If your supports are really dense, you might not realize there is a groove built into the bottom side. It just sits together, with some sanding you can get it to work better.
