So filling a cup with 64oz of fluid and putting it on top a huge offset like that puts a lot of stress on the plastic. You've essentially made a lever. Drink pushing down on your new holder part is trying to rip the "neck" off your printed material.

You should ask what % fill he used and what internal 3D support structure used (like a 3D honeycomb, or just rectilinear, etc). Fused Filament Printing has some limitations.


ya it holds it fine....yeti's and the like SS cups are only 30oz. i doubt a 64oz would fit.....

the added weight of the caulking at the bottom really helps.....

its been great for the last weeks i been using it. i doubt there will be a support problem.

Stumbled on this old post. One of my dislikes of my new Leaf is the lack of being able to put a tall water jug or coffee mug in the holder. I searched some other options but have found nothing that would really work until I saw this. Are these for sale? Thanks!!
