This is a remix of the Toothpaste Tube Squeezer by @somethingtohide which is itself a remix of this one by @ottenjr. Thanks for the design folks!
I really like the original design by @ottenjr, but it posed two problems for me:
- The overhangs wouldn't print properly on the flower shaped hole
- The cap didn't really fit securely enough and would come off every once in a while when rolling the toothpaste tube
The first problem was solved by @somethingtohide by switching to a hexagonal nut. Using superglue to solve the second problem seemed like an incomplete design to me.
So I went ahead and created a remix to use a pin connector for the cap. No glue necessary! Hope you like my tweak to the popular toothpaste squeezer!
Layer height: 0.2, Shell thickness: 1.2
If using PLA which is very hard and brittle, you might want to print the cap with a slightly lesser infill to allow some flex on the pin connector. I printed the cap with 0.2 mm layer height, 0.8 mm shell and 15% infill.
