Introduction: The Adjustable Drinking Cup From a Faucet for Your Cat

如果生活中有一件事,我们会破坏,这是我们的宠物。与我们相比,我们的宠物值得生活中的更精细的事物。这就是生活的工作原理。我的猫是世界上最宠坏的猫。你可以否则争论,但他是最宠坏的。因为他是个孩子,我的家人和我一直把它的水疗法治疗到我们一直从卫生间里给他水的地方。他对水碗来说太好了(认真我们经过4个水碗)。无论如何,他现在在他的十几岁周围,不是他曾经曾经喝过的年轻猫咪,虽然他仍然在早上5点醒来。他从龙头​​挣扎着饮用水,因为他不能像习惯一样移动他的关节。它开始悲伤地看着我的猫挣扎喝水。 Then a lightbulb went off and I was like, hold up...I'm an engineer so why not I build him something to help him? So, I got to work and made him his very own adjustable drinking cup.

This little invention is for all you pet lovers whose pets drink from the faucet.

Supplies:

You will need:

  • 3D打印机
  • Filament (any color that suits your cat)
  • 强力胶
  • Silicone Placemat
  • 塑料螺纹管(螺丝和螺母)
  • Scissors
  • Sharpie
  • Japanese Saw
  • Pliers
  • 旋转龙头
  • 你可爱的小猫诙谐

第1步:随机碎片制作原型

在我的脑海里,我设想了我想要我的杯子的样子。我正在寻找我的房子寻找一个证明是有用和资源的东西。w88官网手机然后,我的妈妈就像,“为什么不使用塑料杯?你知道我们在客人过来时使用的那些。”你可以想象我只是踢自己,因为这将是制作原型的最明显和最佳选择。

我需要两杯原型。我花了e two cups and cut them in half. I took the bottom portions and glued the bases together. Then, I used the top portions of the cups to make the ramps for the input and output of the water. It was only a couple of snips and tape to build the whole entire prototype. I was pretty proud because it was able to last a month for my cat.

Step 2: Improvements for Protype

每当我的猫从原型中坦率地坦率,它会不断幻灯片,甚至落在水槽里,导致我捡起并重新调整它。因此,杯子需要底座以防止滑动。此外,我的猫太低了。他仍然不得不捕一边或变成一条面包喝它。因此,高度需要调整,因为这不仅仅是我的猫,而是对所有猫。有很大,小,高,短,长,厚,或薄的猫。它有所不同。

Step 3: Drawing Board

在识别出一些问题之后,我可以使设计能够制作可调节饮用杯的最佳版本。我的设计将有一个塑料螺钉,将底座连接到杯子。底座主要是靠在水槽上并支撑杯子的部件。螺钉本身将粘在杯子的底部。螺母将被粘在基地上。底座将被粘在硅胶餐垫的切割以防止任何滑动。

Then there will be two funnels (input and output) allowing the water to enter from the faucet and return back into the sink. The cup will have a hole at the side for the water to escape and ride down the funnel. The funnel allowing the water to enter the cup would be connected to a clip that could slide around the cup.

把一切放在一起,这将是有道理的。

第4步:你问什么样的螺丝?

您应该使用的螺丝应该是塑料,因为金属太重并且难以操纵。它也应该是厚厚的,因为如果没有破裂,薄会使它摆动。

I recommend getting a sink drain pipe from your local hardware store because the screw and the nut are fairly easy to manipulate and there are meant to get wet. The inner dimension of the screw is 1.1 "

重要提示:确保螺钉的长度比你想要的长度长。最好有更多的选择,而不是受到你拥有的限制。

Step 5: We Just Love Onshape

I used Onshape to make the 3D printed parts. It wasn't easy but don't worry I'll attach the files. Just make sure the dimensions fit with the plastic screw you get. Also, the attachments will download in mm.

第6步:打印!!

Few Tips:

  • 不要使用木筏。它会浪费灯丝和时间。基地足够大。
  • 零件应该是浅色,所以我猜填充了40%
  • Print them at different times because one can take about an hour. Also, I'm guessing you would rather print one and check and measurements to make adjustments in the CAD if a part were to be smaller or bigger than expected

Good Luck! I understand the pain of printing over and over again :)

第7步:组装

Make sure to have everything laid out.

You want all the 3D printed parts and required supplies.

Step 8: Let's Start With the Base

The base is easy.

首先,将3D印刷底座放在硅胶餐地上。用你的尖锐追踪它。然后,从餐垫切割追踪的硅胶圈。如果你想看到或看不见,你的选择。如果看不见,在你满意的时候修剪它。

Next, glue the nut within the base. Really get it in there before gluing. Also, make sure it's on the right side up. You might want to put a few drops on top of the nut and base.

最后,将硅胶圆圈粘贴到基座上。

You're are all done with the base.

Step 9: Now for the Cup

Before gluing, see how much screw you want; meaning what height you want the cup to reach. With this design, you might get a little over two inches without the screw, just the 3D parts. After identifying the maximum height, use the Japanese saw to cut off the remaining screw that won't be needed.

Now for the gluing. Glue the screw to the bottom of the cup. Wait until dry. Trust me. WAIT. Then, test the cup with its screw. Finally, screw the cup to the nut attached to the base.

你已经完成了杯子。

Step 10: Funnel and Clip

看,我理解你喜欢胶合,但我会再次阻止你了。在胶合之前,请仔细检查要漏斗的长度延伸到水龙头。一旦你做出了决定,那么你就可以把剪辑粘在漏斗中。现在,将夹子附加到杯子上。

你终于做了!!(我认为)

第11步:判决日

Will your cat accept or decline.? It all comes down to our cats. Our cats will determine the future of the "adjustable drinking cup from a faucet."

愿赔率永远在你的恩惠。

(because they were in mine. YES! This is a big win for me. My cat usually walks away)

第12步:谢谢你们

谢谢你和我的轴承。我希望你的可调节饮用杯龙头是功能的。如果你没有做一个,因为你没有猫或者你有一只狗或者你的猫喜欢水碗,那就没关系了。谢谢你阅读我的指示。再见!
