Ice Scraper - Car Windshield Scraper

This is an improved version of my first scraper. Works great.

  • Prints without support
  • Has a cord hole on the end
  • Works great straight from the printer

  • If you want it to work even better... once it's printed hit the scraper end with a hairdryer or heat gun for a few minutes. Let the edge droop a tiny...I do mean tiny bit... This will help it on the curved glass surface even more.

Spray-can holder

This is a chain style can holder, you can connect them as much as you need.
Move one side slightly up to make inclain that prevent the can from falling down (it works fine even if its level).

Stackable Crate

Small stackable crate I've designed. Original size is 150x95 mm, this prints fine with a 0.4mm Nozzle. When scaling down, I would recommend using a smaller one.

Update: By request I've also uploaded the FCStd-file (FreeCAD) but be aware that this is a little bit messy.

Notes:

Most normal filaments print fine without support.
If you want to use more challenging materials (like e.g. wood-PLA) I would recommend adding some custom support for the handles. Infill is pretty much irrelevant, it is basically only needed for printing the top-layers of the floor of the crate. Two perimeters give enough rigidity.

Shopping Bag Handle

Handle for carrying one or more shopping bags. The slim version is slightly narrower for smaller hands and the wide slot version is designed for bags with slightly thicker handles. You may want to adjust the scale before printing.

Hand-Screw Clamp

This is a proof of concept of a new thread design which can make a hand-screw type clamp, commonly used in woodworking. It won't match the strength of an actual clamp, but I tried to make a clamp that was as strong as possible, with 100% 3d printed parts. For this, careful consideration needed to be made so that each part respects the grain of the 3d print. It is, however, still a 3d printed plastic clamp, so don't get too crazy with it!

See my process for designing this here.

Print Settings:

I printed everything with standard draft settings, in PLA. Through testing, I found that the small "SlideHinge" parts are always the first things to fail. They break off at the very tip of the end that captures the rotating knob. So if you wanted it stronger with minimal changes, you could print the "SlideHinge" part solid.

This is tricky to assemble. The design intention wasn't to make a simple clamp. It is more of a demonstration of a 3d printed mechanism to make this special type of clamp.

Also, adding some sort of wax from a candle / soap / etc. will help make clamping much smoother.

Customizable elbow for joining PVC pipe

This is a general-purpose elbow for creating frames or covers with PVC pipe or conduit. I was working with "15-mm" pipe that had an outside diameter of 21.5-mm (~27/32 of an inch) but you can easily change pipe_ext_diameter variable/parameter for different pipe dimensions. You can also specif how many arms/way the elbow join needs by changing the pipe_arms variable. It works to make elbows to join 1 (why would ya?!?) to 5 pipes but I have only test printed 3-way and 4-way.

The internal diameter tapers very slightly so the pipe will stay in there without glue.

Let me know if you need changes made.

You really need supports for this one. I managed to print a 3-way elbow with all of the pipe opens facing down-ish and only need external supports but your mileage (kilometerage?) may vary.
