Shower Curtain Hook by schmarty Jul 2, 2010

Featured Thing!

Description

It's a story that can happen to anyone. You move to a new town and leave your shower curtain behind. "No problem," you think, "I'll just pick up a new liner at the pharmacy down the street."

So, you trek to the local pharmacy and find the shower curtain liner you were looking for, only to discover that they are out of shower curtain rings, hooks, anything made for holding up a shower curtain!

Facing down defeat and the very real possibility that you will have to take a dirty, inefficient bath, you come to a stunning realization:

You're a MakerBot owner. You live for these moments.

Excellent. My apartment complex just remodeled my kitchen and bathroom. And the dim wit workers threw away my old hooks. Glad I didn't leave the curtain up, or i would probably be missing that too.

Can't wait to move to a different town now. My next home won't be the same. :)

In case anyone was wondering:

Yes, I took a shower this morning and yes, the hooks did their job perfectly! :)

Instructions

If you have the same sized curtain rod and curtain liner that I do, just download CurtainHook.stl and print as many as you need!

To customize, start by downloading CurtainHook.scad.

Next, measure:
* The outer diameter of your shower curtain rod
* The inner diameter of the holes in your shower curtain
* The thickness of the material around the holes in the shower curtain
* The distance from the curtain's edge to the top of one of the holes

Pad all of the values out by a millimeter or two, multiply each of
them by 10, and plug them into the CurtainHook.scad file.

Render the model and tweak it until it pleases you, then export it to STL and run it through Skeinforge.

Count the number of shower curtain holes you need to support, and print the
corresponding number of hooks.

Finally, hang the shower curtain and enjoy efficient cleanliness, because you are living in the future!

Hi,

I'm new to thingiverse and just figured out OpenSCAD yesterday. Loved your design... wanted to add spikes to it!

Made this:

How do I add it as a derivative of your work?

schmarty on Jul 3, 2010 said:

Nice mod! Making a derivative is a bit tricky. I believe you have to click the "I Made One!" link, and on that page it will ask if you made some changes, and offers a way to upload your new file.
