Dishwasher wheel and clip by juslem Oct 7, 2012

Description

Rosenlew dishwasher wheel and clip for the lower carriage.

28.8. 2013: Added a bottom-flattened clip version that doesn't require support, so easier to print. It's somewhat less tall than original, but printed in ABS seemed to work well enough as replacement.

PLA will lose it's shape in heat. Even if it wouldn't do that, it'll start to crumble over time, let's say in 30-100 cycles. Observation was done when using PLA-made grids as utensils basket bottom in dishwasher.

Anyone else having problems with printer parts melting/warping during the dry cycle?

You can see pics in my "made" post for this part.

Instructions

.scad file has two main modules, Wheel() and WheelClip()

Depending on your printer calibration / print settings, you might need to adjust some values a bit. Parametrization is not perfect, there are some fixed/hacked values used within the model.

Wheel has a film over axel in order to support the clip hollow, this needs to be removed. Also, little supports under clip needs to be filed away (I couldn't get Slic3r to create a working support for this particular part).
