Inspired by an existing design - my 3d printable version of a folding travel coat hanger.

Just what you need when travelling. Light enough to pack in your case.
Particularly useful if you want to rinse out clothes when you are away or just hang stuff up.

2 configuration options for children or adult clothes.
Also includes a belt, tie, dress, light weight trousers hanging ability.



Added a v2 set - different hinge design which may suit some printers better.

I've printed this version in standard PLA and its does seem stable, but I'll see longterm how the pivot joints hold up?
ABS, Nylon or other more stable materials may be more appropriate?.
The tolerance of the clip fit pivots are going to test the set up of your printer to the max!
Over extrude and the parts won't 'clip' together.
Under extrude and it'll all be too loose!

Print 2 x parts:
Folding_coat_hanger_M.stl (supports needed)

The updated files of v2 have a peg and hole joint design. These joints should be firmly, but carefully 'wiggled' together until the peg clips into the hole - support the walls of the parts as you go.

Hello! If I print with supports when removing the support break the lace. Any solution?

Not sure I understand what's breaking when you try to remove support material? But you only need supports for the main arms. Custom manual supports are great if your slicer provides those. You don't need a dense amount of support either - as little as your printer/bridging can handle.

Very cool, especially that you can print it folded and it can be quite large when unfolded :)

Hi mbthor,

Thanks for the comments but the design can't be printed folded (in one piece) - i may work on a version that can though?
You have to print the individual parts and 'clip' together.
