We now have 2 faucet connectors and I just needed something to organize them. So I designed and printed this faucet connector mount.
Step 1: Starting Position
Here is the starting position:
2 faucet conncetors, no place to organize them...
Step 2: Materials & Tools
- PLA (fpr your 3d-printer)
- zip tie
- pc with some CAD-software (I used RHINO 5)
- wire cutter
Step 3: Designing
First I had to do some measuring with the caliper. I measured the dimensions of the faucet und the zip tie.
After that I started designing the STL-file in Rhino 5. It's really important that your measurements are correct. If there is any mistake your mount won't fit on the faucet.
I designed the mount as simple as possible to prevent useing supports.
Step 4: Printing
I send the STL-file to the 3d-printer and watched him work.
Step 5: Mounting
After mounting I cut off the surplus part of the zipt tie with the wire cutter.
Step 6: Finished!
Hereare some pictures of the faucet connector mount. It was fun to built it and I learned a lot!
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed my instructable!
