3D model description

This was one of my earliest designs when I started 3D printing. The suction cup hook I had for my towel would not stick and I immediately saw a practical use for a 3D print in my home. We use these all the time.

As my young daughter became more independent, she found that she still had trouble reaching her towel. She came up with the idea for the loop to use with an additional hook to lower the kids' towels. We now have a system of hooks that works well for the whole family. Inside the shower works well for washcloths too.


I designed this with Wolfram Mathematica since at the time it was my only 3D design software.

3D printing settings

I printed with 0.25 layer height, 15% infill, 3 top and bottom layers, and 3 outline/perimeter shells. No raft. No supports. I can fit two hooks and two loops on my print bed for a single job.

Hook at the top is 1 inch wide (approx. 25 mm). The models are 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) thick. The hook is approximately 216 mm long and 95 mm wide. The loop is 63.5 mm x 63.5 mm.

I am a high school math teacher and 3D printing hobbyist. I have been 3D printing since 2017 and enjoy making things for my classes and my own children and home in San Diego, California, USA.

I design with Mathematica, CorelDRAW, Fusion 360, and Tinkercad. I love my MakerGear M3-ID and my Palette 2S Pro. I have a Prusa MK3S as well. I started a 3D printing sub-site abbymath.com/3DPrinting, but it needs some updating.
