Beer Tap Tower

One of my hobbies during COVID-19 was making beer (and cider) which turned out to be a great hobby! And, I decided I needed to have it all on tap in my backyard. So I designed and printed a kegerator! Ok, not a whole kegerator but a tap head! ok, not an entire tap head but a head to hold the taps!!

I used small 5L kegs and loaded them into a small kegerator and then designed and printed the head for standard taps. The head sites on a 4 inch PC tube which protects the beer lines going down into the kegerator.

The beer lines are actually run-down copper plumbing pipes which are inside a 2″ PVC tube. That is wrapped in insulation and then covered by the outside 4′ PVC pipe. Those all are held on top of the kegerator with a 3D-printed mount.

I used copper pipe which extends down into the kegerator so that the cold from the kegerator would cool the copper pipes and therefore keep the beer in the lines cold. Probably not needed but seemed like a good idea at the time.

Licensing, Comments and Feedback

I am happy to share my designs (STL files) with our community and welcome you to print them for yourself and even gift them to others. However, I do not permit the use of my designs for commercial purposes (i.e. you can not sell my design(s) or products printed from my design(s)). Thank you for respecting this. If you wish to sell them please contact me and we can work something out.

If you print any of my designs I would appreciate any feedback. I am especially interested in how different designs print with different printers and materials. And, it is always nice to hear back from people who use my designs.

I am working towards commercializing some of my products and experimenting with a few different avenues. I am currently exploring the use of an ETSY shop, my branded site Buku Design and also on Amazon (Canada and USA, ). If you have time please visit my products there to help increase traffic and search success. Thank you.

Use, Licensing, Comments and Feedback

My primary distribution site for my design files is Thangs.com. Thangs is leading the way in promoting designers and competition amongst designers which in turn fuels the growth of high-quality 3d printable designs for the benefit of our entire community. The competition on Thangs, unfortunately, necessitates designers limiting the availability of free designs for a limited time. As a result, some of my designs are only available for free for 1 week from when first posted, so please download them when you see a new file available that you are interested in.

I do not permit the use of my designs for commercial purposes (i.e. you can not sell my design(s) or products printed from my design(s)) without first acquiring a commercial license from me. On Thangs.com I offer membership accounts for access to all my design files as well as a second membership for commercial licensing which allows subscribers to sell my printed products using my designs commercially.

I am commercializing some of my designs and printed products through various avenues including an ETSY shop, my branded site Buku Design and also on Amazon (Canada and USA).

I welcome comments and feedback as we as requests for customization of designs. I will do my best to accommodate those requests.
