Summary

Great Christmas decoration... this Santa Hat has been made to fit on top of a bottle of Bubbly or wine to dress it up during the festive season. Will fit on before opening the bottle and can be used as a cover after opening (...but not as a sealing cap).
The design is shaped internally to make the hat sit slightly back when on an open bottle (i.e. there is an angled internal surface to orient it this way)

Can also be used as a simple decorative piece... easy print. Allowing for a 1mm Raft Base change the colours from white to red at 16mm (approx. 39%) and from red back to at white 73mm (approx. 92%) on a Replicator 2.

At standard (100%) size the hole in the base will print at approx. 32.5mm in diameter so it is a loose fit onto any wine bottle and is a snug fit onto a bubbly bottle with it's wire and foil still in place. Could easily be resized to suit other bottles etc. (eg. beer bottles).

Note: Two additional .stl files (alt_support and no_support) have been added due to different slicing apps/machines capabilities. The alt_support version is required for some slicing apps that have issues with slicing the original .stl file that has thin/fine designed in support. The thicker support alt_support option helps these slicing apps recognise the support but will mean the print takes slightly longer and more filament is used. The no_support .stl has no designed in support. Using automated support with this option is recommended.

Instructions

Use a Raft Base (approx. 1mm) but leave Supports "OFF" as the required support for PLA has been designed in. Print at Standard (0.20mm) resolution with 3 shells and 15% fill.
Allowing for the 1mm Raft Base change the colours from white to red at 16mm (approx. 39%) and from red back to at white 73mm (approx. 92%) on a Replicator 2.
The designed in support should come away easily including the internal support designed inside the cap.

Note: A second .stl (alt_support) has been added which has more solid support. This is required for some slicing apps that have issues with slicing the original files fine designed in support. However, the thicker support will mean the print takes slightly longer and more filament is used.

I remixed your model for dual extrusion, but I am unable to post a remix due to your license setting. Would you allow me to publish my version with a link back and credit to you?

Thanks for your message and I'm agreeable to that for dual extrusion machine purposes only as long as you have test printed it to ensure there are no issues with the files. However, I don't want to change my licence terms so I doubt you will be able to post it as a remix. You will probably need to rename it and publish it as a new thing... but still provide the reference back in the text overview area.

I was surprised that it wasn't easier to tip you. I couldn't find a way other than downloading the file again. Anyway, I know you spent extra time making this file and it's the best one I've downloaded to date. flawless print! I'll be watching!

Comments deleted.

This is the best file I've downloaded! Took almost 8 hours to print, but it was flawless!!

Pleased to hear it printed well for you and you like it!

Please fix the "alt" version. The hat is one layer higher than the support.

Thanks for letting me know. That must have happened when I was asked for the alt_support version to suit certain slicing apps so redsigned the support. Anyway, amended file uploaded now...

Thank you, now it works perfect!

Thank you muzz, it seems that I had the same layer shift problem with the Zortrax in fact. The result was a lift off from raft after a few layers. I will try Again.

Hi, I have no good results with my Zortrax. There is an issue with the first base layer.

Could you provide the STL without any support nor printing aid ?

Thank you.

no_support option added... all the best!

supports dont work Cura wont slice thin walls

I've uploaded an alt_support version which has thicker designed in support. This will take a bit longer to print and use a fraction more filament but hopefully it works okay for you. I haven't test printed it but it should be fine as the support parts is all that has been amended.

All the best... Merry Christmas!

When slicing the model in cura, the alt support model has a few extra layers in the support piece. The support piece prints two layers then starts printing the hat.

That is a slicing issue by the sound of it. I checked the design file and the designed in support is very simple structures so should not cause any issues. However, Cura and Simplify 3D do seem to have trouble dealing with more complex things at time... I use MakerBot's and their app so have no issues like this.

However, what has worked for some people is to reposition (rotate) the model on the build plate. Changing its position will affect the tool path developed by the slicer so it may overcome the issue. Worth a try...

Oh thank you very much! I will make several more this weekend and merry christmas to you too!

Thanks for building in a simple support. This is the optimal amount of plastic to waste
