Introduction

This build is a complement to the Wine Glass Shelf build from earlier this year. This build is almost completely 3D printed with the exception of one hardware piece. With a simple finish and assembly you can enjoy a rotating wine bottle carousel.

What You Will Need

Materials:

Tools:

Any/all necessary protective equipment.

3D Printed Parts

The print time for the carousel is quite extensive at its current design so I would not feel comfortable recommending 3D Hubs since the cost would likely be too high to justify. 

For those of you who do have a 3D printer, I recommend the following settings:

Carousel (decent surface quality to limit amount of sanding needed)

  • Filament choice not really important
  • 0.2mm layer height
  • 25-30% infill
  • Support
  • Raft recommended due to minimal surface contact
  • Brim optional

Base

  • Filament choice not really important
  • 0.2mm or higher layer height
  • 15-20% infill
  • No Support
  • Brim optional

Finishing 3D Prints

  1. Remove raft and support material.
  2. Sand carousel to the desired smoothness. Start with 220 or 320 grit and move up until you have a nice smooth part without visible print lines. 
  3. Wipe the sanded parts with a lightly damp cloth or paper towel.
  4. Apply even and light coat of primer.
  5. Allow enough time for primer to dry, then sand lightly.
  6. Wipe the sanded parts with a lightly damp cloth or paper towel.
  7. Once the parts are dry, evenly apply light coat(s) of bronze spray paint.
  8. Once the parts are dry, evenly apply light coat(s) of clear coat.

Assembly

  1. Glue the turntable bearing onto the carousel and base respectively. Alternatively, you can fasten the bearing with screws.
  2. Insert wine bottles and enjoy your Wine Bottle Carousel!
