Introduction: Travel Protector for Books

Hello! This will be my last instructable for 2 years, due to me serving a mission for my church. So this instructable is how to protect your book(s) from travel damage using 3d printed parts. When you travel your books are susceptible to being dropped, which causes the corners to fray, and the covers can rip and get worn down, lets fix that!!

Step 1: 3d Print the Corners

The only materials needed are eight rubber bands, some books and four 3d printed corners. the corners I uploaded are 60mm. So they can protect books up to 60mm thick. If any of you want me to upload any different sizes I can until February 2nd.

Step 2: Connect the Corners

After I printed the corners I tied rubber bands in between them to make a loop. Than I loped the finished product over opposite corners of the book.

Step 3: And You're Done!

As you can see with both corners in place, The book protector can protect the book from fall damage, small spills and from getting your cover ripped up. I hope you enjoyed this!

Step 4: Extra Files

These are files that im uploading based upon request :)

that's awesome, wish I had this on my mission. I made things kind of along these lines out of cardboard, but the Philippine rainy season made them useless pretty quick. good luck!

enelson8 (author)jonesaw2016-01-26

Thanks! I've seen people with the cardboard case and I think its pretty awesome!

I love the concept. I just think if the part where the rubberbands connect could somehow be situated in a more flat position then it would be perfect. I have traveled across the country & overseas for more than 2 decades either to visit or to move permanently. So I know that every millimeter or inch & milliliter or ounce is very precious. I pray that your mission is very enlightening & you are kept safe during it.

Thanks for the idea! I'll upload a version of that :)
