1 Year of Gloop!
Can you believe it! 1 Year! Wowzers! On June 23, 2018 3D Gloop! was successfully funded on Kickstarter raising $8023 from 215 amazing backers! In the year since, 3D Gloop! has produced nearly 8,000 bottles/tubes of Gloop! delivering to 37 different countries on 6 continents! (Anyone know anybody 3D printing in Antarctica?!)
Enough with the silly metrics, lets get on with the celebration!!!

Be the first to get our new caps!
Currently, 3D Gloop! uses standardized glass packer bottles and acid brush caps. If you’ve ever used 3D Gloop! well, then you’ll know these bottles and caps don’t come with the most pleasant user experience... And for that reason, we have spent significant amounts of time and resources engineering a better cap to solve this issue!
Introducing our Vapor Lock bottle caps!
A team of super smart engineers collaborated very closely with our scientists to develop a new cap and brush system for our Gloop!
On the outside, these caps look super sleek, and come in a lovely shade of purple!
They also feature built in knurled ridges to provide excellent grip! Not to mention that they also are almost twice as tall as our previous generation caps!
But the really cool stuff is all of the science that went into the design and construction of what seems to be a simple aspect of our products.
DOUBLE SEAL VAPOR LOCK DESIGN
It’s crazy how much science and engineering goes into a simple little cap! But when its job is to seal in some of the most coveted science sauce in the world of 3D printing, well, you’ll want to spare no expense!
Each cap is injection molded out of long glass-fiber reinforced ultra-pure polypropylene homo-polymer right here in the United States.
All of these new caps feature a brand name, FKM Viton Fluoroelastomer O-Rings insert molded right into the cap itself! This ensures a perfect sealing surface around the cap and o-ring.
Now the true science of our Vapor Lock cap design resides in the black wiper seal. This simple, yet carefully engineered, seal slides down into the throat of our bottles wiping and sealing against the side walls of of the bottle.
During the closing and tightening of the cap, an air pocket between the main seal and the wiper seal is formed at a slightly higher pressure than what exists in the bottle. This “vapor chamber” provides pressure against the seals locking in the contents.
Its some really neat stuff! Through accelerated life testing, these new caps can keep a bottle of Gloop! good up to 65°F (150°F) with a shelf life that extends to nearly 2 years! So no more dried out Gloop! and sad customers!
Now that we got some of that awesome science talk out of the way, we get to share some other innovations in our caps! NEW BRUSHES!!!
Yeah… We heard you loud and clear. Our old brushes sucked! Especially our 75ml Angled-Reach brushes.
Now, with our new caps, you can choose which brush is right for you! Can’t decide? Why not get all 3! They are easily replaceable! Pull the old one out and slide in a new one!
Each brush is designed for a specific purpose and carefully tested for each use case.
Our coarse brush is just like our old cap/acid brush combo. It’s designed to be inexpensive and get the job done for large glue applications or slathering on Gloop! for print bed adhesive. Think of this as our work horse brush!
Our fine flex brush has over double the bristle count and half the stiffness compared to our coarse brush! This brush is designed for more controlled glue applications or minor smoothing applications. The softer and higher count of bristles leaves a better surface finish and offers more control of where you paint Gloop!
Lastly, our silicone wedge brush is ideal for smoothing application! Its unique wedge design allows for uniform spreading of Gloop! without leaving those bristle brush strokes! Since it is made of silicone, Gloop! doesn’t like to stick to it very well and thus allows the brush to glide more easily over your 3D prints surface!
When Does my Gloopday Order Ship?
Our scientists need some time to get all of our awesome caps materialized and that coveted science sauce cooked up! If everything goes to plan and we can out-do our first Kickstarter Goal, the Overlords should be able to teleport your Gloopday! items directly to your doorstep sometime September 2019! This is only an estimate and largely depends on the level of demand and other factors outside our influence.
We here at 3D Gloop! are a small team of engineers and scientists trying to build something awesome! The support for 3D Gloop! this past year has been phenomenal and we can’t thank you enough! As a small team, we are limited by our resources and bandwidth. Producing new specialized caps is no easy feat and requires some pretty expensive tools and minimum order quantities. This level of commitment is just outside of our teams ability to fund internally so we need your help!
If you have any questions regarding fulfillment or order processing, please feel free to contact us any time!
