Yes, I'm back with more bad puns and a useful print.
This practical, easy-to-print design was something I threw together in Fusion 360. I didn't want a Hodor (sorry) or a solid doorstop. Instead, I wanted something that would squish a little, grip the carpet, and truly hold the door.
Designed to be printed in a flexible material (semi-flex seems ideal), this doorstop has "teeth" on the bottom to grip carpet and "bumps" to grip the door in a ratcheting fashion. While this might work on a hardwood or other bare floor, eliminating the teeth might give better grip.
Pushing the door against the doorstop will compress the doorstop a bit, allowing the ratcheting action to take place. In fact, when sufficiently compressed under the door, this doorstop will actually prevent the door from moving in either direction from a breeze - perfect for days when you can't predict how nature might toss about your doors when the windows are open.
Is your printer unable to print flexible material? You certainly can try PLA, ABS, or some other material and try your luck. With a somewhat plush carpet, you might have luck. If you do, post your make and let me know!
