This piece is designed to accept a chain or rope so that the polyhedra ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5961, http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6178 ) can be hung from the ceiling.

Specifically, I'm working on a soccer-ball shaped ( truncated icosahedral ) lamp using http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6055 as well as the pentagon from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5961. I need some way to hang the lamp.

I believe p_hook_3 is the strongest design and least likely to fail by delamination. This piece also contains a slot for the lamp cord.

This is compatible with other objects I've tagged with "Elements".


Print, trim the extra plastic from the hinges, combine at will with compatible parts.

The scad script is a minor extension of http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5961, so you could easily rework the design for other shapes.

note on hinge clearance : The hinges can sometimes be a little tight. Make sure the first layer isn't pressed too far into the build platform. A compressed first layer will propagate up and make part of the hinge wider, decreasing the clearance. These parts are designed to fit tightly and may require pliers to assemble. If all else fails, removing some of the pins on the hinges can make assembly easier.
