@svenvanderhart - I completely agree. I've just uploaded a bike D-lock holder design, which needs to hold and brace against significantly more weight and movement, and it's come in at just over 60$ but is completely stable. I'm still learning about how to hollow models properly, and it's definitely not something everyone knows how to do, but I'll soon be looking at reducing the cost in clever ways, and I'd be happy to collaborate and share expertise if it leads to a more mass customisable, personalised and affordable product. Design should be inclusive, not exclusive, that's the whole point.

Couldn't you make the print cheaper by hollowing out the handle? It doesn't need to be a solid piece of plastic. It's otherwise a very expensive cup holder. Also I wonder if this is stable enough when the cup is full? Can't you make the handle shorter to clip around the bar? Maybe add wings as well? Give it a character by shaping it as an airplane? Just some ideas.
