The 'Bicycle Bottle Fender Mount' by Michael Mueller has been on my mind all week. It is a super clever way to re-use a plastic bottle. I would love to see if you can come up with something similar this weekend!

http://www.shapeways.com/model/847987/bicycle-bottle-fender- mount.html

You have until Monday morning 18:00, GMT+1 to come up with your ideas!

How to enter

Model your bottle add-on, upload it to your gallery, tag it with 'WeekendContest6' and post the link and picture here (upload the image, and click 'Insert image into message body' to embed it in your forum message).

Who wins?

You decide! Visit the model that you like most, and add it to your favorites. The model with the most votes wins.

What's the prize?

Eternal fame! Kudos from the Shapeways team! Riches! Okay, well, the winner will get a $25 gift certificate.

That's all?

Yep, grab a drink (keep the bottle!), goof around in your favorite modeling app this weekend and have fun!

Bart

Hello,

at first I love the idea of the Bicycle Bottle Fender Mount by Michael Mueller. It's usefull, clever and looks just awesome!! Smile
Ok here is my attempt to re-use a plastic bottle. It's nothing special. I just thought I give it a try and it was fun making it Very Happy


Use your plastic bottles for your sport exercises.
Fill up your plastic bottle with water, adjust them on each side of the Bottle Handle Bar thread and start your workout.

The weight will be up to you, by choosing the size of the bottle.
(0,2l = 200g, 0,5l = 500g, 1l = 1kg and so on..)

After hard training, take a drink out of your bottle and keep the bottle for next time Wink

Link: http://www.shapeways.com/model/993085/bottle-handle-bar.html ?li=modelEdit

I made two models. One with and one without hollow space inside of it, because of the expensive pricing. I just don't know why both of them have the same price. Wink

Ok. here is my entry. a connector for water rockets

Its a coupling that allows you to connect two water bottles end to end (lid to lid) to create a water rocket with twice the volume. I created it out of necessity as finding something similar online is quite hard. several of these could be used on one rocket to get even greater volume.

@JACANT: that's an awesome page, thanks for sharing!

@joseng: weekend contests are simple, just design something around the re-use of a plastic bottle and leave a message in this thread with your entry

@Rylinn: sweet Smile Try updating your forum message with an image!

@leo rolph:ooh, rockets! Anything to do with spaceflight is close to an auto-win for me Wink

Okay everyone, there's still a few hours to go (we have moved the submission deadline to Monday 6pm, Amsterdam time - GMT+1). Give us your best!!

You know when you're building those monster LEGO Pneumatic creations and
the standard LEGO Air Tanks are just not big enough?

Now there's an alternative to supergluing some pipe through holes in the lid and
hoping the glue holds.

The Air Bottle Cap, LEGO penumatic compatible*

index.php?t=getfile&id=29620&private=0

Screw a standard PET type fizzy drinks bottle into the cap, connect your LEGO compressor to one stem,
and the other stem to whatever you've built!

Complete with LEGO Technic style mounting for building into a model.

*as yet untested for fit or purpose.

Paul

Do you have a hole going from the hollow interior to the exterior? If there is no escape hole the model is treated as solid.

A great idea.

Is wsf airtight? Or which material would you print it in?

Thanks Smile

I'd go for WSF, and I'd put a dilute mix of artists acrylic in a suitable bottle, add the cap, pressurize the bottle & invert - the air pressure should push the acrylic further into the WSF - turn the bottle up the right way, allow to drain, take the cap off and let it dry - and that is, if everything fits Wink

@Glenn - No there is no hole. There is just of the inside a hollow. The wallthickness there is about 4.09mm, so that it should hold the weight Wink

Appears you misunderstood Glen. The file checking software that Shapeways uses when you upload a model, automatically deletes internal geometry that is not connected to the outside. Also, with most materials, you'd have to have a hole large enough for the build material to be removed.

Oh yeah that makes sense!! Thanks Smile
Updated the model with four holes on each side of the bar, just not on the sides where the bottles are placed. The water should not flow into the handle.

No, I did not misunderstand. Just as I said, if there is no hole then the internal geometry is deleted and, yes, the model is treated as solid.

Nice entries guys! Surprised

I had time to enter this weekend, but I couldn't think of anything good to enter. Very Happy






It always was. It always was because somethingness cannot spawn from nothingness. And in the was of the past there is the forever of the now. Only now. Only now and nothing new, for anything new would add to the infinite, yet there can only be one infinite. Only one. The universe is only becoming something new in the delusion of our minds. This delusion that makes life worth living in our perceived universe becoming.

Hey team!

Wow, the submissions this week were really cool! I guess having a little extra time pays off Smile I especially appreciated the drawings that were posted.

Like I wrote before, anything that has to do with spaceflight is just begging to be a winner of course. However, going over the entries I think that stop4stuff's bottle cap for Pneumatic LEGO is just sooo clever.

Do you have any Pneumatic LEGO at home, Paul? I hope so, so you can tell us if this contraption actually works! (Or if it blows up, I always enjoy seeing those videos, too Wink Congrats!

Thanks Bart Smile

As for Lego Pneumatics, well aside from a couple of kits (8462 & 8862), there's Rola Hula and the compressor that runs it as well as Sk8r
http://www.stop4stuff.com/lego/technic/pneumatic/sk8r/images/sk8r.jpg
In the top left of the image you can see a plastic bottle with a couple of pipes coming out of the cap - my Air bottle cap replaces that Smile

Cheers,
Paul
