Hello Shapies,

A while back i started a discustion about a reusable capsule for my new Espresso Club Nautilus coffee machine:

The idea is simple - why get stuck with coffee capsules with fixed brands and taste that my supplier offers without the ability to taste other off-the-shelf brands ,domestic or forign or even tea.. ?

I did find resuable capsules designed for Nesspresso machines but not for mine so.. i designed this:

Reusable Coffee machine Capsule


Of course we all know shapeways materials are'nt food-safe so first i wanted to test a plastic version to see how accurate it is and if it fits my machine before printing it in Stainless Steel...

So here is the result in White detail:

Well, it fits perfectly - the white detail is an awsome material , smooth ,detailed and the 1mm top cover is surprisingly tough.


A few more tests and i'll order it in Stainless Steal. (hopefully with no printing issues)


Cheers,
Dizingof

Be warned: Tea in a coffee machine isn't generally a good idea.
One fairly impressive explosion and hours of cleaning loose tea off the ceiling taught me that.
(And now that I've allowed myself to indulge a bit more in my tea snobbery I'm convinced that a coffee machine just couldn't reproduce the right conditions for a good cup of tea...)

When the 'Drink' button is pressed it makes an instant but highly detailed examination of the subject's taste buds, a spectroscopic analysis of the subject's metabolism, and then sends tiny experimental signals down the neural pathways to the taste centres of the subject's brain to see what is likely to be well received. However, no-one knows quite why it does this because it then invariably delivers a cupful of liquid that is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea.

Sorry for the random book quote, but your tea story made me think of this for some inexplicable reason. Y'all may resume your normal forum interactions.

And, so this post isn't totally spammy: cool capsule! Since you're not going to use it for the machine, what are you going to do with it?

When in doubt... Duct tape!
