Custom Lid

 

I needed to modify the lid on a bottle to allow a funnel to fit in to it.

The metal, once cut, left a dangerous jagged edge, so I wanted to protect against injury and make the whole thing look as neat and professional as possible.

I designed the part in Tinkercad and printed it using my Crealty Ender 2.

The finished piece consists of 2 parts, which are identical and then glued together either side of the original metal lid.

The design process was really interesting as I had to really challenge myself to make it interface with an existing physical object. Tolerances and sizes were essential to get correct.

More to follow on my blog… this project is one small part of a larger project to build a composting toilet.
