This week’s selection is the Foldable Hanger by Printables contributor wuguigui.
This item is precisely what you’d think it would be: a foldable clothes hanger. The hanger folds up and can be easily stored and transported.
This makes it ideal to carry along on a trip where you’re not sure you’ll have sufficient hangars at your destination. It would also be ideal for camping, where you can hang your wets from a tree.
The design of this hangar is ingenious: it’s a print-in-place model, meaning you print a single object and it includes all the articulated joints. Just lift it off the print plate and hang your clothes.
Even better, wuguigui has designed the model in such a way to avoid the need for any support structures, which would otherwise use up material, spoil the surface finish and take up your time.
Here is a video describing the hangar:
This is one of the many highly practical 3D printable designs that have been produced by the public, and the more you use them, the more you want to see.
