    I really appreciate this technology. I am a paraplegic but as I age and due to nerve pain I find griping things so much more difficult and painful. Getting off the lid from paint is a pain! Looking forward to trying this. Thanks

    Hey @sfactiveliving I’m going to try printing this device. Not sure how well it will work, but interesting experiment. Do you have any preference of colour? I have red, white, translucent, neon green, glow in the dark, black and magic sparkling purple.

    Hi just wondering, is there something specifically you are looking to open? You mention paint, but this is more of a bottle cap / bottle size (like a soda). Is that what you are looking for?

    Or is it to open a smaller bottle top, like a paint tube / toothpaste cap?

    No problem either way, just curious to “what you want to get into”… perhaps it is both. 🙂

    Hi @sfactiveliving et al. I went ahead and tried printing this device. After a few tries, I got a great looking print in stylish red.

    Unfortunately, echoing some of @chadl ‘s concerns, I don’t think this device is going to work for you. I was personally unable to use it for its intended purpose. The biggest flaw is the lack of teeth to grip the bottle cap. I will relay my feedback on the design to the creators on the forum here ( linked in the heading Twist Off Bottle Cap Remover ).

    My recommendation is to consider one of these designs https://makersmakingchange.com/project/bottle-opener/ https://makersmakingchange.com/project/tube-opener/ , which seem to address the problem more effectively.

    If you’d still like this device as-is, I’m more than happy to ship it, but absolutely no guarantee of suitability. I think you’re much better to change this request to one of the designs above. I’ll be there to print it.
