Vacuum Starfish hook

Vacuum Starfish hook 3D print model


Concept: The flat surface of this starfish with water as medium creates a strong vacuum grip when pressed against a non-porous smooth surface. Theoretically the model can hold up to 11kgs and practically tested up to 1kg which is more than 100times it’s weight.

Commercial license: You can print and sell this model.

Benefits:  Safe and secure,  Using fluorescent (Glow in the dark) material for hook will give an advantage of finding keys in the dark,  No need to drill hole / use adhesive.

Note: The print must be on smooth surface using glass bed is preferred but not compulsory, use high bed temperature to avoid glue stick/adhesive. Make sure that there are no air bubbles after pressing against wall.
