3D Printed Shower Drain Replacement

Custom-shaped drain cover broke, no ready replacement at the big box stores... no problem!

From a few dimensional snaps with camera and measuring tape, I created a model in Fusion 360. So far I have eyeballed it from the photos, but if precision is required, exact pattern could be made from MS Paint. I can always sand the piece until it fits exactly. Test fitting tonight, once I manage to get it off the build plate. Result: perfect fit. Also decided to model a variant with a short pipe flange.

See on Thingiverse:

Has flange for 3" pipe, should prevent popping out and sliding around.

Thanks, it's quite strong at 8mm thick, confident it would support 500 lbs, and the 0.2mm layers give it a nice texture for a foot massage!

This is awesome!  Something I wouldn't have thought of printing, but obviously super-easy both in modeling and printing. Nice.
