remix of bottle cutter by Szalat

decreased print volume and time
increased slots width to easier accomodate the blade
added metal washer slot to avoid cutting the bottom : major improvement, increased lifetime by many orders of magnitude
Slide an appropriately sized metal washer into the slot to create a metal base preventing the bottle to cut into the PLA. Washer dia 18-20mm, thickness 1.5-2mm works best. Freecad source included for easy adjustment of washer size.

What is it for? Search youtube for “plastic bottle cutter rope”

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
