It looks it can be printed in two ways. In working position or with a side on the bed.
is the first option valid? The second one looks easier but the hole quality is going to be worse.
Any recomendation? Thanks a lot

Porque necesita soporte??

Ummm, I don't speak Spanish. But I will take a swag that you asked "Why do you need support?". You need some level of support for the circular portion that supports the wine holder. You may be able to print without it, but I would tend to want to add it. Good luck.

Here is the google translate of that:

Ummm, no hablo español. Pero tomaré un botín que me pregunte "¿Por qué necesitas soporte?". Necesita algún nivel de soporte para la parte circular que soporta el titular del vino. Es posible que pueda imprimir sin él, pero tendería a querer agregarlo. Buena suerte.

gracias, tu español fue correcto.
otra consulta, puedo reducir el archivo para poder imprimir una unica pieza??

I have uploaded both a single piece and split piece file design. If you want to print it as one piece, select "Curved_Wine_holder.stl"

Now google translate again:
He subido tanto un diseño de archivo de pieza única como de pieza dividida. Si desea imprimirlo como una sola pieza, seleccione "Curved_Wine_holder.stl"

Sorry, I don't have Solidworks. Can you post a high resolution (high poly) version for complete smoothness? Or, do you have OpenSCAD code for modification?

One of my favorite designs ever, made one, works perfectly, easy print and very clever. I enjoy watching the way the bottle balances. Photo will be uploaded tomorrow.

Great to hear! It makes me so happy to have people make my designs! Thanks for the kind words.

I think that it would be even more awesome if you also added some subdivisions in order to make it totally smooth. Still it is nice the way the light reflects on the small rects. I could also do the remix. Or even try a total low poly (with fixed bottom in order to balance in a standard place)

Hell yea! Low poly would be really interesting. Remix away. I uploaded the Solidworks file if that is what you need or I could upload a different file version.
