Description

after cleaning up a bit, push the pin through the strainer and put them on top of the plug. then push the pin firmly through the plug. Done.

I had some difficulties in printing the outer curve of the strainer, but it's invisible when in use. After printing, just file away the support pins under the cup using a flat metal file. 

all components have been printed with 100% infill and a shell thickness of 2mm

Materials and methods

it's made out of 3 parts:

- the strainer: printed in PLA

- the pin: printed in PLA

- the plug: printed in Flex-PLA
