3D printing Practical example: When the awning collapses at the weekend 2500 2500 RUHRSOURCE GmbH

Bochum, Höxter. What to do if one of the clamp feet of the awning says goodbye? Good thing we have a 3D printer on hand. Because this means that a new foot for the awning can be 3D printed in no time at all.


Kaboom! That was one gust of wind too much and the clamp awning immediately lies on the floor of the terrace.

After taking stock, I found: “Okay, the left foot of the awning is still there … but where is the right one?”

The subsequent search was ended sobering; the right foot of the clamping awning cannot be found far and wide. Without this, the awning cannot be rebuilt. But it’s the weekend and Amazon won’t be releasing a foot from the manufacturer before Monday.

3D printing was the quick fix

Without further ado I decided to trace the missing foot in Autodesk Fusion 360. It’s really easy to do: a small 2D drawing, an extrusion here and there, maybe round it off a bit and you’re done: the new foot of the awning can move into the 3D printer.

Important: Install an “anti-slip” and the new awning feet are ready

Because everything went so well, the second – the left foot – was also replaced. A little trimmed and glued non-slip mat (the one for carpets of all kinds) finally ensures correct adhesion.

Conclusion: Fusion 360 from Autodesk and a CraftUnique CraftBot PLUS with PETG from RUHR3D can save you the weekend and enjoying the sun.
