Parametric hook, universal and very strong.
I’ve been looking a while for a parametric hook modeling, but I didn’t found any available model that ideally combines strength and customizing possibilities. So I tried to create the model I wanted. This is an attempt for a universal and very strong parametric hook, easily 3D printable as a "finished product".
I did a "stress test" with my parametric U-Hook in its default configuration. The hook had been printed in PLA, with 2 perimeters, 0.2 mm layer height, and 20% infill.
It supported a weight of 47,4 Kg.
SCAD file, full PDF documentation (in English and French), and 4 STL samples are inside the zip package (in "Files" section).

I also wrote a little tutorial about "how to use a parametric file" with OpenScad software, that could help you if you're not familiar with this type of file :
Rafts : Doesn't Matter
Supports : No
Layer Height : 0.2
Infill : 20%
Convinced by 3D printing potential as a vector of social and economic changes, I take part in this movement by designing "file-objects". I believe 3D printing will become a major alternative production method, decentralized and accessible, that may profoundly change relationship between "users" and "products".
