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.

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.
