Wall mountable toilet paper roll holder for standard 115mm rolls (45mm core diameter) with screwable upper lid. Looks great in glossy or matte gray tones.
Even though empty roll will drop out at bottom automatically, the design is not semiauto self-reloading ;-)
UPDATE: I so much liked the idea of having a slideable wall mounting plate (many thanks to WaShErE!) so I decided to enhance the design!
Please note that this modification is untested, since I only have one bathroom and this print eats a lot of filament... but I'd be glad to hear about your results in the comments!
Now there are several options for you to choose from:
- you always need inner.stl for the lid / holding pin, it's the same for both variants
- for the original (tested) body version with fixed 70mm mounting holes, download and print body.stl
- for the body with slideable wall mount, choose body-with-plate.stl and one plate of your choice:
- plate-70mm-vertical.stl for a plate with two vertial aligned mounting holes with 70mm spacing (recommended)
- plate-58mm-horizontal.stl for a plate with two horizontal aligned mounting holes with 58mm spacing
- plate-no-holes.stl for a plate template to add holes at your own
The fitting between body receiver and plate is tight at 0.0mm tolerance, so depending on the quality of your print, it could need some force to get the body mounted.
Printed with 0.1mm resolution makes for an excellent surface finishing and the threads will work smooth. PLA works great in every aspect for this design (surface, stiffness, price).
I printed with these settings:
- 0.1mm layer height
- first layer height 0.2mm
- 4 bottom layers
- 4 top layers
- and for those owning Simplify3D, i used "combine infill every 2 layers" - very handy feature!
Best printing orientation is with bottom side facing down (not with wall mount plate facing down).
Hints for mounting
- it takes two M4 countersunk screws to mount, for both fixed body version and wall mount plate version
- mounting hole distance is 70mm
- reaching the mounting holes can be a bit tricky, for best experience use a long-shaft screw driver bit on a mini ratch
- use of Torx drive screws is recommended (you don't need to push to screw them)
