THIS ISN'T DEVISED BY ME. THIS IS DEVISED BY MARK MANGER. I STRONGLY URGE TO GO TO GROPENER WEBSITE: " https://www.gropener.com/ ". THERE YOU CAN PURCHASE THE FIRST BOTTLE OPENER MADE IN ALUMINUM. <<<
GrOpener is the development of Mark Manger, an Employed Artist from Denver, Colorado. Inspired by the stick & screw openers Mark struck in Africa in the 1990′s, the GrOpener uses the same leverage principle, but in a form that enables a bottle to be opened via the action of catching it. <<<
This really is super simple to print!

PRINT WITH SUPPORT STUFF (there's a small overhang!)
My first 3D creation!
Variation 4 (updated 23.6.14):
Now there's 4 different versions:
- Version one: Fundamental OHBO
- Version two: OHBO with a magnet.
- Version three: OHBO with a coin.
- Version four: OHBO with a coin as well as a magnet.
BTW: The rear of the OHBO is for cans! Simply put the tail below the clip of the can
Magnets from dx.com (here is a link: http://www.dx.com/p/10050078w-round-ndfeb-magnets-silver-50-pcs-239991)
Coin is a 1cent euro coin.
In the event that you are printing version 2,3 or 4.! additionally you will need some super glue
All versions analyzed and are scaled. At the applications that was slicing turning of the item is merely needed. I would suggest to print with 100% infill (layer height 0.2mm) but my 20% infill opener is also tough enough to open a bottle!
My prints are created of XT plastics and PLA, PLA/PHA! I like to see your prints of this model
Print consistently with support touching construct plate! (There's a small overhang). I would rather print this version with infill that is 100%.
This version works well with many of plastics. I've attempted PLA, Colorfabb PLA/PHA and Colorfabb XT (copolyester). ABS should function nicely as well but it may be a bit overly flexible (a portion of the opening force goes to bending so the opening procedure needs more force). I believe PLA is wonderful stuff to select for this print!
- Paste the magnet or either as well as the coin. (Version 2,3 and 4)
- Add some or a keychain cord to the hole.
HINT: Paste potential also as the coin. The merchandise must be really solid. Unless it's not strong enough, it will not break. (I've printed so a lot of these and only one broke up caused by poor pasting.
