The fastest and cheapest way to get all my .STL files FREE is to donate $5 to help fund school materials ... once I have $3,500 I'll convert all these files to FREE downloads. https://www.gofundme.com/roboguts-kits-lessons
This is a single stave for building a barrel using 24 staves total ... It's just another learning curve for SolidWorks ...

Using your CupCake MakerBot Print 24 of these and then rubber band them together into a barrel. Might use some kind of human consumptionable adhesive to glue'em together into a cup. or ... cheat and get the full barrel and just print that and use it for a cup.
