I'm very very new to this and I've been trying different models. Should this be printed with each part printed separately, all at once, or does it not matter? Sorry for the stupid question.

You should be fine to print them all together as long as the pieces aren't overlapping and your build plate is big enough. There are no stupid questions when you are trying to learn!

What file do we print to make this! So many!!

A little rubbery glue down on the bottom where the can sits should help with can rotation.

This is a practical use of a 3D printer! :) Love it!

Could you please give me the correct messurements for this? As when I put it into my slicer as its not to scale. Thanks.

it is the tiniest bit loose in the sense that it can spin when it is clipped in. Otherwise very solid hold at a 2540% scale.

Mine imports tiny too. I'm attempting to print at 2540% scale. I think mm<->inch units is the problem. I'll let you know how it comes out.

I'd love to see an option for the tall boy cans as well. Awesome model!

Hi Tony, I think this guy in my local Facebook group stole your design and is trying to profit off of it. Just wanted to give you a heads up.

This is under the CC license that allows people to print for profit. They are however supposed to link back to the original designer. https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

They arent wrong in selling it, but they are still being lazy.

If we're all making requests :) Can you add Boiler Up to a file?

Love this design compared to all the others. But i cant work out how to make it smaller to fit our EU cans :(
Any chance of someone making one to fit? The cans are 116mm top to bottom.

shrink it in the z direction

can you make the bottom support a separate .stl file?

Hi, Can you put the text "CORAL CLUB" on both sides of the handle please?

Done a couple ways. Look at bottom of thing files list.

Love this idea. I don't drink from cans very often but some of my colleagues certainly do. I'm sure they'd appreciate this as a gift.

Whenever I open it in cura it is very small, do you know why this is happening?

The desinger states below..

"Tony_G - in reply to DanTexasMan
The part was designed in empirical (inches), but most of the time, people have the import setting set to millimeters in Repetier.

Go to the "Config" pull down and then "Units of imported Object", and set it to "Objects are in Inches". Just remember to set it back, or the next metric model you import will be really big :)

Or you could scale it up by 25.4"

Always good to read the entire comments, odds are your Q is there is one form or another, my one was there too

Whenever I open it in cura it is very small, do you know why this is happening?

Could you make one that says "GO BISON" on the sides?

Please forgive what is undoubtedly a dumb question. I'm new to 3D printing and just learning my way around.

I really like this model. If I wanted to print this, but make it fit larger cans (like a Monster Energy can), what tools would I need to make it taller to fit one of those? Thanks!

I did the original models in autocad, but also included step files. You would need a 3D modeling program, like autocad, or one of the freebies, like FreeCad, that can import a step file. You'd then need to manipulate the model, to increase the distance between the clips. It would mean learning a 3D cad program, which in itself can be a real core, if you haven't used one before.
What's the exact height of that can? And is it the same diameter as a "normal" 12 oz can?

Como consigo cambiar el texto? gracias

Tendrá que utilizar un programa de CAD , como AutoCAD , para añadir el texto al modelo sólido . (translated from english, using google)

Dommage,
C'est bien quand même.

Thank you, hope you enjoy it.

please make a definitely compatible size for repitier host. I try an 25.4, not compatible, i try 23.4, not compatible.

See the reply to Dan_G below, specifically the part about changing import units to inches. I used repetier to print this on my machine. If it's off by just a bit, it could be a difference in can size. It seems there's no rule on can size, and they vary by small amounts. I was at the,store sometime back and lined up a dozen different brewers cans. There were 3 different size cans in just that lot...

vraiment génial, il fallait y penser.
faut vraiment breveter, patend,

After using Google translate, I think you said you like it and that I should patent it. This was a derivation of someone else's idea, and sometimes it just feels better to not be too materialistic and just let everybody in on the fun.

This imports into Repetier very small. Any idea what it should scale to ?

Honestly, this is pretty stupid. most slicers import in MM, so why would you now provide a mm .stl? i do not have the option of changing the import to inches on mine, so this is a real PITA.

Excellent. Thanks for the education. Brand new to printing. =)

CAN YOU HANDLE IT?!??!

VERY GOOD
I DID AND IS THE BEST
THANK YOU

I just remixed this into a sippy cup type version of this...

It will give you much more control while drinking...

I appoligise in advance but shouldn't this be the "Candle"

Only if you use it for "light" beer :)

Make sure it wont get WARM xD

The "test slice" addition is greatly appreciated.

this is my kind of "candle", just dont light it on fire

CAN you HANDLE this?

I just "Can Handle" it, man...

I think in both cases you may be importing the models into your slicer, thinking they are in METRIC units(millimeters), when in fact they are in Imperial units (inches). If that is the issue, scale the part up, in your slicer, by a factor of 25.4. (1 inch = 25.4 millimeters exactly).

Thank you sir!
Might want to mention this in the description.

the files come at a very small scale. i found a scale of about 25.5 works perfectly for a 12 oz can. awesome print

scale is not good on your file. It is about 1/4 of an inch.

That's in case you're not very thirsty... :D

(See note above. Sounds like you might be importing inches as millimeters.)
