Designing a curtain rod holder for 3D printing in Fusion 360
I was asked to mount a curtain rod on a beautiful hard wood bed from Domestav that’s in the kids’ room.
Unfortunately the vendor supplied contraption to mount the rod is supposed to be drilled into the beautiful wood:
which to me is a sacrilege.
So I decided to instead design and 3D print a part that could be attached using a double-sided tape. Therefore, it was Fusion360 time:
And this time the model pretty much worked on the first try:
although I had to do some post-processing1 because the
have been bigger.
In comparison with the original, I think that mine is obviously prettier:
And in the end, here’s the glamour shot:
