Beginner Plastic Hook From Mold

  • Software:
    Shapr3D - Openbuilds CAM
    Machine Time:
    Bit or Laser Size:
    1/8" End Mill
    Plywood and Plastic Pellets

    A couple of months ago there was a great deal on new iPads Pro and after watching a couple of review I thought it would be great as a CAD and Video editor machine, provided I used the appropriate software.

    Shortly after I sold my City Scrambler ebike and got a Xiaomi electric scooter. After a couple of rides with my backpack I knew it was time to get a hook, so searching amazon I found one that I could replicate and this project was born.

    The plastic pellets i used were bought about 10 years ago but never had the chance of using them besides some small repair projects around the house. This are very strong, kind of like ABS ( don't quote me on that ) as once the part if done it will "bend" a little but not shatter.

    In retrospect I should created a 2 part mold sliced in half, that way I would be able to remove the part easily and preserve the surface which did not turn out that nice after some heavy work trying to make it look good.

    In the end im very happy with the result.

    PD: I don't own a 3D Printer :) and my youngest kid wanted to do some voice over but then did not want anymore :)
