Sweet Water Bird Feeder | Repurposed Soda Bottle
We’re not a huge fan of single use petroleum based plastics (which is why we only print resin based PLA). This is a bare plastic print ready for you to attach and re-purpose an otherwise single use PET bottle (we think 600ml ones work best as you don’t want to go too heavy). If you don’t have any, your local recycle centre can help out. Kit comes with hook and screw on feeder. Just add them to your own bottle (use epoxy glue for the hook)!
How it Works
Whilst we’re ultra-nerdy enough to run a fine suite of well maintained 3D printers, our CAD skills are a work in progress. We’re predominantly a 3D printing service and only charge for machine time, which is usually only NZ$3.00 p.h.! Our little 3D print store is simply an example of some of the items we can print for you from well know sources such as www.ThingiVerse.com. It’s a great source of 3D Printer files and we invite you to explore. If you see something you like, just come back to us for a print quote. ThingiVerse designs are covered by a range of different licenses from ‘free to do what you want’ Creative Commons licenses right through to ‘non-commercial’ clauses. For anything other than CC, we’ll work with you to ensure no distribution licenses are breached (usually by simply asking the designer if we can print the item on your behalf). Easy as that. So if you’re looking for a design we don’t have listed as an example, just contact us.

We tip the designers! Even though the example designs we use fall under Creative Commons, we still like to give credit where credit is due so always endeavour to ‘tip’ the designer for their work via (for example) the ThingiVerse ‘tip designer’ feature. We aim for a 10% tip (or the nearest equivalent on the drop-down). If the designer doesn’t accept tips, 10% goes to a local charity!
