It’s a story that can happen to anyone. You move to a new town and leave your shower curtain behind. “No problem,” you think, “I’ll just pick up a new liner at the pharmacy down the street.”
So, you trek to the local pharmacy and find the shower curtain liner you were looking for, only to discover that they are out of shower curtain rings, hooks, anything made for holding up a shower curtain!
Facing down defeat and the very real possibility that you will have to take a dirty, inefficient bath, you come to a stunning realization:
You’re a MakerBot owner. You live for these moments.
If you have the same sized curtain rod and curtain liner that I do, just download CurtainHook.stl and print as many as you need!
To customize, start by downloading CurtainHook.scad.
- The outer diameter of your shower curtain rod
- The inner diameter of the holes in your shower curtain
- The thickness of the material around the holes in the shower curtain
- The distance from the curtain’s edge to the top of one of the holes
Pad all of the values out by a millimeter or two, multiply each of them by 10, and plug them into the CurtainHook.scad file.
Render the model and tweak it until it pleases you, then export it to STL and run it through Skeinforge.
Count the number of shower curtain holes you need to support, and print the corresponding number of hooks.
Finally, hang the shower curtain and enjoy efficient cleanliness, because you are living in the future!
