I made a thing... Poorly: Replacement Contigo Water Bottle Button

Just before bedtime my daughter brought me her water bottle and asked if I could fix it.



The button and stem, on the right, are what release the valve so water can flow.  It's from a $7 Contigo water bottle, so no big deal.  I offered to go get another with her before school tomorrow, but the she said the magic words.  "Can you make a new one on the 3D printer?"

Yes Daughter, yes I can.

So I modeled it in Fusion 360:



Then printed it out and viola! One functional, if not very attractive, replacement water-bottle button.
