So we use a suction cup hook in the bathroom instead of drilling yet more holes into the wall.
I read I should use hairspray so it sticks better.
I have to pic it up every two weeks or so.
And it makes a ugly spot onto the tiles.
Why didn't I think of using my 3D printer earlier to finally fix this issue?
One of the images is the side view of our Ikea bath mirror cabinet. It rests against a ceramic tile backsplash.
The wood frame of the cabinet is ~1.2mm thick, and so there's a gap to the backplane wood.
So my idea was to print a hook that just clamps in between cabinet and wall, with a small border that rests on the cabinet's backside border.
I also added text, but the files are without text so you can put your own in. You may have to change the thickness depending on your printer, the gap behind your cabinet, and the thickness of the border.
No need to drill into the tiles anymore.
!!!! RED ALERT !!!!
If your cabinet does not rest snug against the wall or does not have a border at the back, you can not use this thing.
!!!! FIRE !!!!
Print it on it's side to have a continous layer, but print it laying to avoid support (depending on the hook shape!)
If you print it laying, the hook will be made of lots of slices and breaks easier...
PP3DP UP owners: The thin section - when printed on the side - will be printed as two walls with a gap :( Make it smaller so they touch or thicker so it consists of more layers, but watch out that it still fits and does not get to fragile.
