    Well, I finally had a go at your bottle and it came out pretty good. I've been playing with Colorfabb PLA/PHA in white which is nice when you get it going but tricky to get right. I used a 150% flow setting for the first two layers to make sure it all knitted together then switched back to 100% after that.

    Not the best of photos but a nice print. Some facets on the curved surfaces but good, the stopper fits perfectly.

    Can easily remove the facets if you want a smoother end-result. That's the result of the medium quality export from OnShape.

    It's not really a problem I was just pondering if the effect came from S3D or the CAD side. It gives it a bit of a cut glass effect.

    Another update for Pie (and anyone else looking for colors). I found some transparent/translucent yellow and orange PETG. The yellow is a bit milky but looks better in person than the photo. The orange is spectacular in person. The super dark black one is not transparent ;) but does show how beautifully Atomic Filament's carbon fiber filled PETG looks.

    I also made a tiny change to the threading so that the engagement is a bit more positive. The STL files are attached.

    Update:
    Spoon Unit wanted to see my Simplif3yD profile I use for these. I think it's pretty middle of the road in quality vs. speed terms. The file suffix TG-L is for Taulman T-Glase and it's what I use for most PETG type filaments.

    That yellow would work awesome in a colour mixing setup! Have magenta and light blue/cyan?

    That's a neat little pile of Y-belt dust in the back left corner. ;)

    Another go at capturing the colour with a 'real' camera and natural light. Oh and it's half full of water to test for waterproof-ness.

    Beautiful print quality! Is it fluorescent or just a really rich orange?

    It's really hard to capture on a camera is what it is. Their site just lists it as flourescent. It almost seems to glow though, as if it contained nuclear waste.
