Project: Floating Cup


When I saw this for the first time, I was sold immediatly. I needed and would print this. Once done, this is an object that catches the eye when exhibited. And I did book some succes with this print. Everybody wants to see this from close range and spontaneously starts asking questions, even they have no notice at all about 3D-printing.

Settings for the cup:

  • Sain Smart Clear PETG
  • infill 10%
  • layers: 0.15 mm
  • printer: Prusa MK3, upgraded with a BMG extruder and BEAR frame

Settings for the coffe:

  • 3D-Fuel Coffee
  • infill above the splash: 10%
  • infill of the splash: 60% (I needed extra weight in the foot to keep the whole print balanced when the cup was mounted)
  • layers: 0.15 mm
  • printer: Prusa MK3s (stock)
