Dutch designer Jesse Howard in collaboration with Thomas Lommée of Intrastructures developed OS WaterBoiler using OpenStructures design and CNC manufactured and standard components. "Its (completely disassembleable) design and transparent construction invites users to adapt, repair, and combine with existing OpenStructures components."

The WaterBoiler was passed on to the Antwerp based design studio Unfold. Unfold has made an adaptation: a salvaged, PET bottle was replaced by a cut glass bottle which holds a 3D printed ceramic water filter. Activated carbon can be filled in the ceramic water filter and act as a purification device. Besides, adaptor piece was designed by Fabio Lorefice and then got 3D printed. The water filter is still a prototype, it is part of a research project on the reuse of various parts and components and potential benefits of ceramic 3D printing in the developing world.
