Description

Two bracket types. One elegant frame designed to save filament and print time. And another, solid bracket for strength and durability. The design comes with countersunk screw holes and removable covers to hide the screws.

Materials and methods

Print both without supports and choose which one to use for your project. Or split to objects and delete one from within the slicer.

I attempted to mix red, blue, and yellow PETG to create sort of a wood color. A center screw holds the wooden member in place. After I took the photo, I added additional, countersunk screw holes to the .stl file for secure mounting.

I am going to use this for a spool holder, so I didn't need the secure mounting. In fact, I wanted them to swivel. I plan to drill holes in the wood. Then get some wooden dowel and put pins in the ends to go in the holes, forming a roller to put PETG spools on. I will be able to twist them to take the dowel down and change rolls.

But you could add slots instead of holes to drop the dowel into or create a solid (non-moving) towel rack out of it. The whole point of using wood is to save print time and use what I had on hand. But you could easily print a roller or rack, and even print your own screws. But that is beyond the scope of this project.

Although the elegant bracket was designed to save filament, it turns out not to save much filament, in production--only about a meter. And that's with 20% infill, and turning down the infill sq. cm. threshold. Not really worth it if you have layer adhesion issues.

But I liked how it looked so much that I left it in. So there.
