    3D printed plastic is basically a nylon material. There are other materials that can be ordered, but typically they get a bit pricey. Also, the nylon material will need to be sealed. Havent seen any printed drip cups, but if you have specs, I could take a crack at CADing it up for you.

    This is what I'm using not and just cutting it down.

    sorry for the crappy drawing but the best I could do. All measurements where with a crappy ruler but I hope you get the jist. what would you seal the nylon with or could something like delrin (think I spelled that right) be used

    The red circle is the hole for the 510. I don't have anything to meager it with. The base is about a little less than a 1/4".

    How would the nylon stand up to heat? What would you seal it with?

    Depend upon the heat and the material. White nylon is good up to 80C/175F. Printed steel is heat resistant to 831C / 1528F degrees

    Sealing? Ceracoat would probably do the job.
