We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This thing is for curtain rods that are generally found in a closet, the thick wooden dowel type.
I can buy the dowels for $5, make these hangers for $0.75 each, and will be uploading end pieces that will probably be around that price as well.
Painting the wood to match the plastic (I printed in gold, although I'll be honest it looks more like brown,) was another $13 for a quart. Overall the price per curtain setup will be around $10, compared to a minimum of $20 in the store, (more if the end pieces are fancy at all.)
This has already been run through cloud.netfabb.com, so it shouldn't need any tweaking. Please let me know if the upper area is a little diagonal on yours, it doesn't seem to be in the file, but the last few I have printed were a tiny bit off.
Take it slow when screwing in to prevent splitting.
I have insulated curtains hanging on mine now, no problems.
