My wife complained about the front cup holders, not holder her Starbucks/Wawa coffee cups securely and how she has to hold the cup when making a turn so...
I designed inserts that can be inserted and removed easily. G/V note Grande, Venti cup size.
Updated with some pics in the car

Pat,

That's a good question, my Premium does not have that option.
But from a design standpoint, I designed it to fit snug so most likely.

Send me an email and I will send you one for you to test. Could use others feedback.

I added a few pics with them in the car, yes the black looks good.
Would be happy to print some for you.

Please let me know how much for a pair. I'd like to photog them in the Touring.

I'd love a pair of venti and grande inserts too! Happy to pay. Just got my Ascent Touring 2 weeks ago and hate the console cup holders! More than happy to support your creation! (as are most of these readers...)

All,

I will review the discussion tonight and work on getting a few samples printed and sent out for feedback.
I will be looking for feedback on some design ideas I have.
---------------------------

First thanks for your interest, it was not my intent to sell or make more than for my own needs but if a few people are interested I would be happy to print a few more. Would only be looking to cover supplies so not sure what the cost would be at this time, but it would not be a lot. See that's why I'm not rich.... (will pick a few names, based on their interest in testing)


But I would first prefer to send a few samples for some of you to tests, confirm it works as expected, ask you provide any suggestions and then see about printing some for sale if still interested.
I also provided the 3D printable .stl files in one of my replies, based on his request, so if anyone else wants to print current design, they are then welcome.

A few thoughts on possible design changes,

- Make it more universal, one base with a larger round opening and have inserts for different sizes for more secure cup fit if needed.
- The current design, as stated before was for my wife with paper Starbucks (or my Wawa) cups with Insulated Sleeves, so the height was set by that need.
- Should the hight be increased to better support taller sizes?

I know all this for a cup holder, uggg :)

Hi Mark, great to see you have a new model printer. Would you mind to share print files ( .STL ) ? Thank you

I'd absolutely be interested in testing one Mark.

Side note, how do you like your printer? I've been kicking around the idea of getting one.

The Prusa i3 Mk3 is a great printer, if you are thinking of one, go for the kit, you learn a lot building your own.
Had fun setting up a workspace for 3D design /printing.

As for the insert, I will let everyone know when ready to sell a few, if still interested.
I'll be sending a few out this weekend for feedback.

Mark
