Towel and Potholder Brackets version 3

This bracket version is slimmer tha the other two versions. I experimented with removing as much surface as I could without compromising strength. I found it necessary to increase the size of the pegs in order to get a good 3D print. This version uses a half inch round wood dowel as a rod.

The 3D render below shows how the brackets look in a different color and design scheme. The render features Colorfabb-PLA/PHA color Red Transparent and Home Depot’s Solid Surface Countertop in Silver Birch and Smart Tiles Stainless Backsplash.

If you have a 3D printer, you can print the brackets now yourself. Click here for a link to the stereolithography file on Thingiverse.

3D Printed Canister

I have fallen in love with 3D spiral vase printing! I designed and printed another object today. It is a canister for holding a few sewing supplies. The design on the front and back is a graphic I found on the web and manipulated in Inkscape.

The canister is stiffer than the world cup I made. I found that the beveling keeps it from squishing. The top fits snugly. If I can think of any other needs I have for another canister, I will certainly make one.
