To all the 3D printing capable people here - I've got a question:

Y'know dishwasher cutlery baskets? Well, the base of ours is falling apart. The cutlery compartments have a plastic mesh at the bottom that stops spoons, forks, knives, pizza cutters, whisks, pastry brushes, graters and egg separators from falling through and interfering with the big spinny whoosing water jet thing. :J

Are the plastics used in the printing process up to withstanding the heat and water from continued washing cycles? If so, would someone be up to the task of creating a few small pieces of printed mesh that I can place over the ever increasing holes that let our spoons and knives fall down and interfere with the spinning jet 'o water?

Of course, I'd pay for time/materials/posting.

If it can be done, I'll get measurements etc.

Thanks!

Get measurements and I'll try.
I currently use PLA which probably isn't so great at those temperatures. I do have some ABS that would probably do the job.

Ace biscuits. I'll get it sized up tonight.

Cheers Ant.

I'm also happy to take a pop at it, though I know nothing of the longevity under stress of the plastics involved.

Ah, you're both true gents.

Couldn't get the measurements last night as the dishwasher was already prestacked with dirty implements and I didn't want to get curry sauce on my ruler. It's been on overnight, so I'll be able to get the sizes this evening come tidying up time.

Ye gads, it's shaping up to be a fascinating Friday evening.

I've measured up and I'd need 8 lots of a 40mm x 54mm mesh. The holes would need to be around 2mm square, big enough to let water through, but small enough to hold the cutlery.

Are you hoping to impress someone with 3D printing, or do you have another reason for not just spending £10 on a replacement?

We'd looked at a replacement a few weeks ago, found an original on Amazon and it was £25 - £30, which made me rather vexed. I wanted a cheaper alternative, but the cheaper non-original ones didn't have the deep grooves which allow it to fit over the racks. The product link's here.





I now see that the current prices are somewhat more appealing.  :-$


If Ant or Throb are willing to make a mesh insert with postage for less than £9.20, then I'd much rather send the cash their way than Amazons (or a third party). :)

I believe Ant is preoccupied with 3d-printing his mars mission vehicle. And frankly, it sounds easier.

This is our dishwasher. It costs $3:

The white top ones are good for non-stick, I think.

The ones that come in packages labelled safe for non-stick are good for non-stick.

In the UK, some of those are yellow sponge with white pads. Other non-stick safe colours are available.

I scorch the shit out of non-stick pots, at which point they are transformed into oui-stick pots
