3D Printed Gate Support

A patron emailed me an object that he wanted to print on our 3D Printer.

He and his wife have a dog. They also have carpets on the second floor. So he got a baby gate to put on the bottom of the stairs to prevent the little guy from going (literally) upstairs.

However, he ran into trouble because of the railing on the stairs. There was a rounded part that prevented the gate from sitting firmly. So he went off to his CAD program and designed a part to help. Check out the slideshow below to see how things worked out.

It’s been almost 2 years since we go the printer but finally, patrons are starting to use it for functional items. It’s great to see!
