Tetnum and his fellow college dorm students tried every doorstop he could find to work on their doors to no avail. The commercial doorstops were too short, would slide, or just plain didn’t work.1 The ones on Thingiverse were getting destroyed by the door closers. Undaunted, Tetnum designed and printed on his trusty MakeBot Cupcake CNC a taller gripping door stop that incorporated the school’s logo.
My cupcake has been running nonstop to make enough for my floor. the doorstops have been in use for 4 weeks and are all holding up.
I could totally see this doorstop as a must-have dorm essential for any incoming college freshman. It’s thin and can be stowed away anywhere in a small dorm room, useful for keeping the door open or from letting it swing open accidentally, and personalized for their college. In a dorm room where space is at an absolute premium, it makes sense to have a 3D printer where you can create objects on demand, rather than have to stock up on things in advance. Rock on Tetnum!
