What better way to celebrate Pi Day than a bottle opener in the shape of everyone's favorite irrational number (okay, technically it's the symbol that represents that number, but you know what I mean). As I have done before, I have found the symbol Pi contains geometry that lends it to being every so slightly modified in order to become a fully functional, completely printable bottle opener.

Does it work like 100 times?
I´m a little bit sceptical because its without Reinforcement.
Which material do you prefer?

I haven't tested it that many times yet (to be honest, I made this as a kind of functional novelty), but a high infill percentage and more shells than normal (perhaps as many as 4 or 5) should give it plenty of strength for repeated use. I printed the original in ABS, but I think with the increased strength from higher infill percentage and number of shells, PLA might actually work better since it's a more rigid material than ABS.
