This is a replacement for a broken bracket on my Bosch dishwasher. It is the bracket that holds the lower plate guides vertical.

UPDATE 2/24/2015 - I updated the STL to make the rear clips stronger and added some fillets to make the rack snap from setting to setting easier.

Also I reprinted using ColorFabb XT. This stuff is amazing! The bracket holds up very well in the high temperatures of the dishwasher and has enough give that it does not break when repositioning the rack.


Print in ABS with support.

PLA will deform in the heat of a dishwasher, but the ABS is doing great. Make sure your ABS print temperature is giving good layer adhesion or you will run into issues with the clips on the back breaking.

UPDATE 2/24/2015 - I have reprinted this with ColorFabb XT clear and it is 1000% stronger then ABS. Enough give that it behaves like the original part. I also use Slic3r with the pillar support option for a perfect print.

I built one, but couldn't make it fit without snapping parts. I think I need to use flexible pla.

I have updated the STL to add some strength to the rear clips which tended to snap in ABS. Also I highly recommend using ColorFabb XT as it has just the right amount of "give" for the bracket to work like the original.

It is a tight fit, and it needs to be print in ABS. PLA will get soft and fall apart in the temperatures of the dishwasher.
