Introduction: 3D Printed Wine Bottle Carousel

About: Designer and maker using 3D printing and CNC to blend the digital and physical into something beautiful and functional.

This build is a complement to the Wine Glass Shelf build, you can see that here. This build is almost completely 3D printed with the exception of one hardware piece. With a simple finish and assembly, you can enjoy a rotating wine bottle carousel.

Step 1: ​What You Will Need


3D Printed Carousel

3D Printed Base

Lazy Susan Turntable Bearing


Bronze Spray Paint

Clear Coat


Sanding Paper


Orbital Sander (optional)

Any/all necessary protective equipment.

Step 2: 3D Printed Parts

The print time for the carousel is quite extensive at its current design so I would not feel comfortable recommending 3D Hubs since the cost would likely be too high to justify.

For those of you who do have a 3D printer, I recommend the following settings:

Carousel (decent surface quality to limit amount of sanding needed)

Filament choice not really important

0.2mm layer height

25-30% infill

Support required

Raft recommended due to minimal surface contact


Filament choice not really important

0.2mm or higher layer height

15-20% infill

No Support

Brim optional

Step 3: Finishing 3D Prints

  • Remove raft and support material.
  • Sand carousel to the desired smoothness. Start with 220 or 320 grit and move up until you have a nice smooth part without visible print lines.
  • Wipe the sanded parts with a lightly damp cloth or paper towel.
  • Apply even and light coat of primer.
  • Allow enough time for primer to dry, then sand lightly.
  • Wipe the sanded parts with a lightly damp cloth or paper towel.
  • Once the parts are dry, evenly apply light coat(s) of bronze spray paint.
  • Once the parts are dry, evenly apply light coat(s) of clear coat.

I will sometimes use a healthy amount of spot putty to help with print lines on parts that are difficult to sand. I will typically do this after the final sanding and before the primer.

Step 4: Assembly

  • Glue the turntable bearing onto the carousel and base respectively. Alternatively, you can fasten the bearing with screws.
  • Insert wine bottles and enjoy your Wine Bottle Carousel!
