Description

Picture this: you're home by yourself, sitting on your porcelain throne, and you are ready to depart from your bathroom when you instinctively reach to the side. You reach for it again, but to your dismay, nothing is there, and you slowly look over. Could it be? Could you really have ran out of toilet paper? Now what???

Teepee ensures that this will never happen again. with a modular stacking system, the only limit to how many rolls you can store is your ceiling height. You can use teepee in two configurations, with a receptacle at the bottom that will hold the roll, or with a dispenser and rods for each roll that allows you to use it as a regular toilet paper holder which can “eject” the roll automatically when it is empty, allowing the next full one to automatically roll into the dispenser.

 

This system should work with 99% of toilet paper rolls, however I have included the f3d file just in case, so the size can be increased. You could also just scale the model up, which should work just as well.

 

 

Printing & Assembly:

 

Printing requires a very small amount of supports for the bottom of each straight piece, as well as supports for the curved portion if you choose to not split it.

 

As for assembly, any strong glue should suffice, or as an alternative you could spot weld the pieces together. To attach the entire thing to your wall, I would recommend either tape or some sort of adhesive, to prevent making a hole in your wall.

 

I have also included a test print, as this entire project is filament intensive, it is a good idea to make sure that each piece will fit together properly before printing the whole thing.


 

Notes:

 

The dispenser with the ejection system is still quite hairy, and depends on the toilet paper roll. I am working on a more consistent version, but for now I would suggest printing both the receptacle and the dispenser to see which one works better for you. As always, feel free to modify the model as you need, I can provide any other files.

 

To use the ejection system, you must print a rod for each roll you wish to use at any given time, and slide them into the holder. This ensures that each new roll is able to spin freely in the dispenser.

This is cool! I had thought about designing something similar to this, but for rotating through pairs of running socks (to keep me from just wearing the same pairs over and over). I may print it out and see how it goes!

How does this mount to the wall, is there a whole for screws in the back?

I think I can get a profile working for this on the A1 Mini by splitting into 6 plates. This is such a cool design! I am intrigued! I'll get to work and report back!
