Make Your Own Toothpaste Dispenser.

Introduction: Make Your Own Toothpaste Dispenser.

You only need ONE movement and ONE hand to put toothpaste on your toothbrush with the same amount of toothpaste everytime.

This dispenser is a must in your bathroom if you are as lazy as me!!!!

Supplies

  • PLA
  • 3D printer
  • Rope.

Step 1: FAILS

It took me almost 2 months and 8 different versions to get to the final design.

It was an exhausted and tired process, that freaked me out. I had tried from gears to cranks and slides.

I am pretty sure I wasted at least 500gr of PLA.

Step 2: DESIGNING

I used 360 Fusion.

Step 3: PRINTING TIME

I am leaving below the .stl files.

It is also available on Thingerverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4539237

Step 4: ASSEMBLE

THE COVER OF THE TOOTHPASTE MUST BE REMOVED.

I am leaving a video where everything is explained.

Remember not to stick parts of different colors (with the exception of the toothbrush holders).

It is not shown on the video, but in the.st files there is a file called "up", you have to stick it up.

Step 5: HOW DOES IT WORKS?

I am leaving 2 videos, one in Spanish and one in English.

Step 6: HOW TO CLEAN IT?

I am leaving 2 videos, one in Spanish and one in English.

Step 7: CONCLUSIONS

Sometimes the block you push ends up with some toothpaste, that is the only thing to improve.

Despite that, it works perfectly well.

Hope you enjoy reading the same I enjoy doing it. :)
