I tried making an air tight lid to save sodas for later. This is as close as I could get. It fits very tightly depending on the brand.

On some cans I could fill with water and turn them upside down with no leaks but if I squeezed the can it would leak so it's a tight but not perfect seal.

I also noticed that this varied from brand to brand. On Pepsi it fit the best. Very tight (takes a bit of force to put on). Brisk tea was a bit loose, still stayed on but not water tight. Diet Rite it fit good but not as tight as Pepsi...


I printed with a .35mm nozzle and .20mm layer height.

On simplify3d the side holder is not atached to the cover :(

I have been printing with SainSmart TPU, the stuff is awesome, and in my opinion.. easier, tougher, and better looking than PLA. Only Issue is the flexibility, plus I haven't printed anything where flexibility is of any use haha. However... This looks like a PERFECT use. I'll reduce the size just a bit and see how it works.

Here's a tip, an acetone vapor bath greatly improves the impermeability of ABS prints, so after printing this lid you might try that.

I've done vapor baths. I always here this but I have no problems with my prints being air or water tight without vapor. I think if you do then settings are wrong laying down filament so it's not touching and thus leaks.

This item does not seal against the can perfectly as they are all different slightly.

When I first got my replicator I tried printing a whistle. I printed about 5 of them and all had a few holes in them rendering the whistles useless VERY frustrating. I did some research and found RepG defaults are far off from Replicator suggested defaults. Once I started using those, all of my prints now come out good and without holes.

As I mentioned all the cans I tried varied in size slightly. Just resize it slightly if it's too small.

this is nice however unless I did something wrong I could not get it to fit :( will try again thanks
