Paper Towel Dispenser Key by theroar Jan 25, 2013

Description

The maintenance crew had not replaced the paper towels for me... Lacking the Key to open it... I made a few guesses in openSCAD. =) Voila! Key created. Works like a champ too. =)

Good idea. I would have to make the radius of the "post" thinner though as it currently protrudes past the width of the "paddle" mechanism.
You know if you laid it flat it would print better and be stronger. Printing it this way the key is likely to break along a layer. (Probably in the lock mech)

Instructions

I printed at 100% for strength. It only takes about 10 minutes to print. I did spray a bit of hairspray for the first attempt, but the rest stayed on the platform just fine.
