Double drinking straw holder

August 1, 2016 in Solution

Straw_1

A nifty product to hold two straws on the side of any mug or glass. The straw holder was initially designed for Wendy who has MS and needs to use two straws to drink. Her husband had made a support from tape and a rubber band which did the job beautifully but was difficult to assemble and also unhygienic.

Straws_3

Here’s the final design, you can download the CAD file amd make your own using a 3D printer! Find a 3D printer at your local makerspace, alternatively contact DEMAND Design & Manufacture for Disability for help getting or making this straw holder.

Download the 3D CAD file here.

Make sure to post a picture if you make your own, we’d love to hear your feedback!

Double straw holder

Straws_5

A little product I’ve developed to hold two straws on the side of any mug or glass. This was initially designed for Wendy who has MS and needs to use two straws to drink. Her husband had made a support from tape and a rubber band which did the job beautifully but was difficult to assemble and unhygienic…

Straws_2

To hold the straws at a variable height they need to be supported securely. After lots of iterations and models I developed a method of slotting them in horizontally and rotating them.

Straws_3

The final models were 3D printed to make them small, strong and accurate. Wendy’s pretty happy with her new straw clip! You can order your own one here and have the freedom to drink unassisted. Feedback on the design would be hugely appreciated 🙂
