Custom Boom Arm Hose Hook (3D printed)
« on: October 18, 2017, 12:31 AM »
I recently switched from 27mm to 36mm hose on my CT with boom arm, and found that I could no longer hook the hose over the tool hangers on the boom arm. So I decided to design my own hook for attachment to the 45 degree part of the boom arm. It it large enough to "cradle" and retain with the 36 or 27 mm hoses. Below are pictures. I've also made it available for sale at Shapeways.com at these links:

Hose Hook Top

Hose Hook Bottom

You will need two M4x16 screws and nuts to attach it.

did you post-process that print?! That's a super clean print! What are you using if you don't mind me asking, layer height? Nice work!

It's the "green and polished" option at Shapeways (the laser sintered nylon tends to be pretty smooth anyways).

I'd be willing to bet that "polished" just means "tumbled" in the same stuff you clean ammo shells with before reloading....
