Lightweight Bar Stock Rack
by chuank, published
A sturdy, space-saving wall-mounted rack/shelf catered to hold light-weight bar stock. A 10-degree arm angle keeps cylindrical bar stock backed up against the wall, and a 25mm lip at the end helps to keep things from dropping over.
Reinforcement holes cut into the support triangle also serve double duty to hold smaller-diameter bar stock, such as carbon fiber rods or piano wire (see photos for reference).
Print more/less arms depending on the weight+length of your bar stock that you intend to hold up.
25mm (w) x 86mm (h) x 98mm (d)
- Use ABS
- STL has been sliced with 60% infill
How to mount:
It is critical to sand the flat mounting surface to roughen it up, in preparation for the adhesive mount. You can use either 3M Command Strips, VHB, or any heavy-duty mounting tape.
I used the large Command Strips and it has been holding well â€“ just make sure you clean all mounting surfaces with IPA and let dry before mounting.
How much it can hold depends on the mounting used, YMMV!
