Step 1: Frame

Just print a pair of modules for each bottle.

I will add some different edits/designs once in a while.

(Please note that the pins require support material. Although I'm new at this, I will try to add the support myself and update the .stl file soon.)

Step 2: Base

Use a base for extra stability.

I've added some simple shapes for you to choose from.

If you have 2 modules next to each other at the bottom, use a double pin base.

(There is a 0.2 mm difference in radius between the pin and the pinhole to ensure proper fit)

Step 3: You Decide What Your Product Will Look Like!

Experiment with different structures.

Mix and match frame material and colour.

Change the frame and base design to your liking.

(I also suggest measuring your bottles for best result.)

I'll print some samples in the coming weeks to give you an idea of what it looks like in real life.

(Please note that this is a work in progress so I would not recommend printing a full scale model until after I have released my test/sample results.)

Step 4: Version 2.0


  1. Increased the size of the frame (from 1cm*1cm to 1.5cm*1.5cm)
  2. Changed the shape of the pins to withstand vertical forces
  3. Increased the diameter of the pins slightly
  4. Slightly changed the geometry of the base parts

Hope you like it.

N.B. Make sure to apply a high percentage of infill, especially at the pins, for extra stability.

hey dude, love the design, simple but versitile :)

could i suggest a base which the holders can attach too as without one they would be a little unstable and would move allot when you take wine in and out.

i am planning to print your design and construct a base myself

Hey Tom.

First off, I really appreciate any and all suggestions/comments/input (whether negative or positive). It's a big help.

If I understood correctly you mean a base that holds both frames of a pair? As in 2 X structures on one large plate at the bottom? (If not, please explain.)

I thought about making a base that would hold a pair, but that would limit the way that you can position and build your system. That's why I chose smaller bases for each foot to make placement and assembly as unrestricted as possible.

But you do make a point with respect to stability being an issue. I made a sample of the foot of the X frame and the bases through 3D Hubs and found out that my pins are too fragile (small thickness + FDM layered formation = easy to break if applying a moderate vertical force on the pins.)

I do believe that the infill on the pin was set too low (It was hollow. I had no control over the printing/slicing process), which might be the cause of all this.

I also noticed that my X frame's thickness (1 cm) is a bit low (a pair can hold a bottle, but not sure about multiple stacks.) Check the pics for more detail.(OpenBeam for scale. No banana available...)

I began editing my design to fix the issue, but I am in the middle of exam period so time is not on my side (I do not have a 3D printer so prototyping/testing takes a while).

I suggest you wait before printing a full scale version, at least until I am able to work out the kinks in my design.

However, feel free to make your own modifications/additions to the design. Send me a message or leave a comment to let me know what worked for you. Also, keep me posted if you decide to print it anyway.

Good luck!

I like your design. Thanks for sharing! Have you printed any of these yet?

Unfortunately not yet, 'cause I don't have a 3D printer.
Will try to print a sample through 3D Hubs next week (after exams :p). I added a 0.1 mm leeway (0.05 mm difference in radius) between the pin and the pinhole. Not sure if that is enough.
Please let me know if you try it :)
