Replace broken shower head holder by 3D printer

When the home bathroom shower head damage, the usual practice is to buy a new one or whole set (even Peng Peng head) from the market, the general store will not be sold separately, and do not forget the new holder installation holes with the hole on the wall may not be consistent, enough trouble it. Then we use a 3D printer to print one, the installation hole in accordance with the wall to do, 100% suitable.

To print, the first we must have a 3D model, you can find on Internet, and then install the hole distance, can find the right no matter how good, and directly used to doctrine. If there is no, only their own modeling, modeling tools more to go, win10 comes with such a tool, there are online online modeling tools, these tools like the use of children building blocks, easy to use. 3D tools can be used to do more complex models, only you can not think of, no they do not do it. To. I used to use solidworks, the following is built the model.


Top View

Side View

I do the adjustable angle of the seat, the activities of the back part of the wave teeth, relying on the fixed part of the wave beads plunger (do woodworking table dog left) positioning, no wave beads plunger, you can also Fixed part of the establishment of wave teeth, tooth height is not too high it wants. The next step is to import the slice software to generate the gcode file to allow the 3D printer to recognize and print.

Slice 1-with support

Slice 2

Above figure is slic3r show the way, I use the 0.3mm layer height with 0.6mm nozzle, 30% cubic infill, this model needs support, and then removed the support when finish.

After several hours of printing is complete, you can start assembling, two wave beads plunger installed to the fixed part of the left and right holes, nuts installed to the inner wall of the hexagonal hole, 2 screws were screwed into the outside, Part of the can, without the whole screw into the screw, and then part of the assembly into the fixed part of the time, then all the screws on the tight, assembled to complete.

Install back on the wall, job done!
