When my arthritis gets bad water bottles are hard to open. So I made these to make my life easier. There are two versions. The one with a single hole called water bottle opener only opens water bottle sized caps. This version works very well and takes very little downward force to grip. The one with two holes called plastic bottle opener has one for water bottle sized caps and soda bottle sized caps. Some water bottles produced by soda companies use the soda sized cap. The soda caps tend to be bulbous so it doesn’t grip quite as well and takes a little more effort to grip, bit is still easier then griping with your arthritic hands. This version also does not require supports to print unlike the single hole version. If your only opening water bottles the water bottle version seems to grip just a little better than the plastic bottle version.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
