BevvySteady Wine Holster

I am pretty sure this is a first… a fully gimballed wine glass holster. It is not quite as good as my BevvySteady3 for beers because the wine in a wine glass is inherently less stable but it works!! And, if you or someone you know loves to enjoy a glass of wine while barbecuing or doing anything else standing upright then this might be the product you never knew you needed.

Ok, you can’t run around or be super active but if you are mostly standing still and cooking or doing something similar it will give you a holster for your wine to free up both your hands. So… basically it is a novelty thing but I still love it.

I designed this around the very large 20oz (590ml) wine glasses that Costco had been selling for many years (in Canada sold under the “Crystal King” brand). I see Costco (Canada) now has a similar glass but with a different shape. I suspect that will work but I have not tested it.

The design starts with the same hook-on belt clip used in many of my other models including the BevvySteady3 (for beer and sodas) but the similarities end at the second part that mounts to the belt hook. For the BevvySteady Wine, I needed much more stabilization. So the second component extends down lower to ensure the main gimballed components stay horizontal. There are actually 4 axes (effectively a double gimbal) to ensure the entire assembly can swing away from your body and remain upright, and then a second full gimbal to allow the wine glass to remain upright.

The entire assembly is 100% printed. A few of the parts print in place and then the entire assembly snaps or slides together. No fasteners, hardware or adhesive are required.

A drop of synthetic lubricant in all the rotation points will ensure smooth operation.

Prior to assembly there 4 pieces of support that need to be removed from the printed parts.

Printing

Material: I choose to use PETG for its durability and flexibility.

My Setup:
Nozzle = 0.4mm

My Settings:
Layer height = 0.2mm
Line width = 0.4mm
Wall count = 4 (1.6mm)
Infill = 40%
Ironing = Not required.

Support:

Where to Get My STL Files

You can find my posted STL files on the following sites:

Thangs

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.
