Anyone have a recommendation for 3d printing a plastic clothing hanger rod bracket? I have 1 unbroken one I need to copy off of, no idea what brand/make it is and been unable to find something else to substitute.

Are there any affordable places around that can scan my existing unbroken piece to reproduce? I will probably get 6 of them printed as backups in case the other holders break

the clothes rack pole hollow end goes over the plastic cap middle, the ribs secure it inside the hollow end. so it acts like a cap and holder, 1 on each end of the clothes rack pole. the vertical pole is just a support pole

Design one yourself in tinkercad? If you're talking about just a square bracket with a round slot for a a rod to hold a pole, that would be a simple rectangle with a "void" cylinder to hold the pole.

Something like this? (Very crude, not measured out, but only took a couple of minutes to do)

(or maybe I'm not understanding what you're looking for)

Photo didn't work.

First Google search or look on thingiverse for it. Otherwise make your own in tinkercad.

If you know anyone with a printer, they'd be happy to print it for you for free or maybe a beer.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Put the images on Imgur, then post here if you want them embedded, but the ibb links work for me when clicked.

Do you know the brand of those hangers?

It's a little bit more complex than a quick job. This "customizable" cap model might be a good starting point for the basic shape but it would need custom design on top of what that spits out (as well as exact measurements of the current part)

That's how I would approach it.
Why reinvent the wheel.
You can scale any dimension in the slicer, and test fit until it works.
If proper settings are used, that centre hole can just be drilled without adding it to the design.

604ray:
This doesn't appear to be special enough that it has to be identical to the original.
Just use all printed parts so they match, and it would be hard to tell at a glance they aren't original.

You could search for other designs.
You'd be surprised what is already available.
Thingiverse search isn't great, but try Google and https://www.stlfinder.com/
Look for images that are possibilities.

Has anyone had shipping problems with LABISTS? Still waiting for my Raspberry Pi ordered over a month ago, virtually no customer support.
