This is a simple thing to help you carry your bags. It doesent hurt your finger, and is really elegant to use.. (=])

Use 10% of infill or more. If you like being the "Hulk", print with 70% and you will carry the World.

Any tips about a filler material to reinforce it (some kind of resin or such?)

is it strong enough?

Bag Holder - Shopping Handle

How good is it with PLA?

I have remixed this so you have more of a grip nicer look.

Better Grip Bag Holder

stress tested it for 16 KG or so
ABS Thing O Matic accelerated build 10% infill
scaled it down a bit tho as the ToM has a small build platform

I think like guttyr it wil be helpful for older and disabled folks too! But I like to make a round hole in it so you can stick it on a wheelchair
or other vehicle's!

Thank you ivansiedel for sharing your design! Printed one up at 0.8 scale on a Printrbot 2014 this afternoon. Your design is helpful for older and disabled folks too.

I would suggest designing a more ergonomic handle. Maybe a bit fatter and with finger groves for a more comfortable fit when carrying heavy loads. Kind of like this: http://media.midwayusa.com/productimages/880x660/Primary/746/746539.jpghttp://media.midwayusa.com/pro...

Which CAD package did you use?

Hi, I used SolidWorks

Great! I did it in PLA. Thank you.

I made one in ABS that served me well until I tried to carry 38 lbs of laundry with it.


Time to make a replacement!

EDIT: I printed the original in ABS at 10% infill and frankly I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did. I'm about to make a new one with at least 70% infill.

I will print you one if you pay for shipping + few $ for the pla. with pla this is extreamly strong. great idea! email me [email protected]

Usefull thing! By the way, what weight can it hold? Havy no own printer and tried to load model to http://sculpteo.comsculpteo.com
It'll cost ~$77 for me. Very expensive :)

77$ is very expensive! It costs for me, something around $1.5

I have never tested how strong it is, but here is a guy who made it and carried 20kg: http://www.thingiverse.com/make:63284http://www.thingiverse.com/mak...

The handle looks really great

Love it. Need to print a few more and stash in car.

In fact it was not my idea. I just got an idea from another one more simple, and did this one for myself =]


Question: What amount/percentage of infill did you use?

I think I used 4 perimeters, 4 solid layers and 12.5% honeycomb infill. It is very sturdy with these settings!

I used 2 Shells, 20% infill :)

I'm going to try this one. I suppose this is using the R2

I scaled this by 0.95 to make it fit a little nicer on my ToM platform, but it printed beatufully! Excellent design!

Nice! Great that it worked with small size also! Can you post a picture?


thanks i made one cant what to try it

:'( ooooooooooo its too big for me to print

Fell free to edit and post a new version also :)
