Selective pet doorstop

We needed to prevent our dog from entering the room where the cat litter and food is located. So I built a doorstop that firmly keeps the door open so that the cats can pass, but the dog not, even when she pushes with all her force.

I wanted this doorstop to not alter the door, nor the frame, nor have to drill holes in the walls. It also had to be easily removable and put back into place. 

Obviously this is tailored for our door and pets, but it might be helpful as a starting point for other people in the same situation. I included the Moment Of Inspiration source file so that it can easily be customized.

Materials and methods

Very easy to print, just make sure that the flat side lies down on the printer bed, no support needed. You will most certainly have to adopt the design for your door and the opening that you require.

I printed this on an Ultimaker 2 with 0.1mm layer height, 50 mm/s print speed and 25% fill density.
