Description

A friend at work had an old drawer with a broken runner wheel. The manufacturer no longer makes them. What a perfect situation for a 3D printer! I modeled the existing wheel in Autodesk's 123D Design using nothing but cylinders of various sizes, using the Combine/Merge and Combine/Subtract tools. I chamfered the edges of the wheel, but realized after printing the first prototype it wasn't enough, so added more and the second prototype looked good. I added the screw pocked on one side so when screwed to the bracket, the head will have some recessed room to hide in.

The wheel measures 28.2mm in diameter, with a 7mm hole in the center. The projection on the side is 5.26mm. I'm including the 123D file in case anyone else needs to modify this to suit their application.

Materials and methods

I used Taulman 910 Alloy Nylon filament for this. Prints beautifully and should last quite a long time. It was screwed in place with an appropriately sized flat head screw.
