3D Print: Robert Oster Ink Bottle Holder / Stand


I love Robert Oster inks so for my next 3D printing project, I chose to design a simple bottle holder / stand for the 50ml Robert Oster ink bottle. This design is for a single bottle, though it could be easily edited to hold a few more bottles. The angle is tilted to make it easier to fill pens when the bottle is nearly empty. However, do be careful if you have a full bottle of ink! Unscrewing the cap at this angle will make the ink spill.

The .stl file could be found on my Thingiverse page. Please feel free to use or modify the design.

Here are some pictures of the finished product (see below). I wanted a very simple and streamlined look -- partly because I tend to favor minimalist designs, and partly because my skills are so limited that I couldn't make anything too complicated! I also wanted the bottle to fit snugly in place. It's not just sitting on top of the stand, so it won't easily fall off. (There's a picture below where I hold the stand upside down with the ink bottle in place.)

All in all, I'm quite satisfied with the result. I'm still new to 3D printing though, so any feedback or advice would be welcome. Thanks!
