Hobo Reel

Free 3D model Hobo Reel, Khombhat

Did you 3D print this model?

3D model description

For those who are not familiar, a Hobo Reel is a bushcraft fishing pole. It is designed to fit in a backpack and has internal storage space for whatever tackle you might desire to pack it with.

I made this one with custom pipe threads so that the fit between the cap and the handle is water tight and does not require a gasket or o-ring. It also floats, as you might expect, so that is a plus.

This is a pretty solid little bit of kit for the outdoors enthusiast!

3D printing settings

Printer: Creality CR-10 (stock)

Layer Height: I went with 0.12mm because I wanted the threads to be as smooth as possible. I tried one at a greater height and the threads looked pretty bad.

Supports: Depends, but my printer handled this print just fine without supports.

Brim: Recommended

Infill: I went with 20% Octet, but you could do less and it would just be lighter.

  • 3D model format: STL
