I use these Wilson Candy Making squeeze bottles for a lot of things around the shop (this one is for paint thinner), but the caps always seem to get lost or damaged -- and even when they're not lost or damaged, they're tiny and tapered, so they're not very easy to remove. So I made a replacement cap to solve both those problems.

The ridges in the printed plastic hold the cap on tightly.


1) Print. (Tweak the OpenSCAD settings, if necessary, for a good fit.)
2) Apply.

For this I used slic3r 0.9.7, Marlin, and j-head 0.5mm with cheap 3mm "repraper" PLA filament (from China). I print onto glass covered with window tint with a thin coat of ABS juice. The printbed is heated to 90 for the first layer (measures about 80 with the IR thermometer), and 75 for additional layers. I used two perimeters, 10% honeycomb infill, and 0.4mm layer height. Hot end temperature depends on color, but is usually around 185.

Trip down memory lane... this was one of my first prints ever. Still using the caps to this day. Now here I am, a few years later, coming back and making some more. Thank you

Awesome! :) :) Thanks for commenting!

I should have put up my make the first time, but will be sure to publish a make this time. Warming up the heat bed now!

this did the trick thank you for the file:)
