I am a disabled watercolour painter. I often have to wait until someone is in my home to open paint tubes. This simple device looks like it would be a huge help with my grip for the tubes I can’t open myself.
Please reply below if you can help 3D print this device!

Thank you! Let’s do it!
This is my first item through this group – how do I pay you for it all? And I see you’re going to make the dog feeder too! Thank you!July 27, 2020 at 9:04 pm #8207
I saw your request via the Columbia Valley Makerspace facebook page. I have made/printed the paint tube cap opener. I tested it on one of my wife’s tubes of Acrylic paint, and it works reasonably well – but it works best with two hands. I can mail it to you, (no charge) if you can provide a mailing address. I’m not sure if this forum provides a mechanism to send a private message, but if so, use that rather than putting your address here publicly.July 27, 2020 at 9:04 pm #8208
Hi ! You’re right-it is best to message private info over DM
