We installed a sliding door in our kitchen and needed a handle, so I designed and printed one!
The handle has a curved design, with a recessed back. You need to drill/chisel a hole in your door and fit the handle into the hole. This way your handle does not get in the way if you needed to slide your door fully open.
I'm new to 3D printing and design so, as always, my designs are a work in progress and can be edited if desired.
I printed this design on a Replicator 2. When I uploaded the file into maker ware it was positioned so that the front surface of the design is on the top. You need to make sure you add supports, which can be removed from the back once the design has printed. With the supports on the back it means any rough surface should be hidden when you mount it onto the door.
It was printed at
Layer Height: 0.3mm
Once printed, measure the recess section and draw this onto the position on your door. Using a drill with a wood piece attachment, drill small holes around the shape you have drawn on the surface. My door was hollow on the inside so the shape then just popped out, but you may need to chisel out the hole in the wood. REMEMBER DON'T GO THROUGH THE ENTIRE WIDTH OF THE DOOR - you should NOT be able to see the handle on the other side of the door. I screwed the handle in place using 32mm plaster board/dry wall screws.
