Norwex Mop Wall Holder
After showing the HDX Broom Wall Holder to my wife I was asked to create one for a Norwex Mop. Now, I really fucking hate this mop. It doesn’t function well as a mop and always seems to be in my way. But… my wife seems to like it, so at least it won’t be in my way any longer if it has a proper home hanging up in the back of some abandoned closet.
I am going to lay this one out in the same way I did the HDX Broom Holder with a few adjustments for easier use. There is a large sphere that is utilized as the end cap of the handle that needs to be taken into account when designing the holder. I bumped the holder a few extra millimeters off the wall to account for this. The handle is almost exactly 29mm in diameter, so the inner opening will match that. For the last holder the the opening was 120 degrees, this holder will be increased to 135 degrees to make it easier to place and remove the mop.
The sketch is then extruded to 75mm.
Fillets are added to most edges. Some of the fillets are to make the part print better or faster. Some are functional and allow the mop to snap into place easier. Some are aesthetic, to soften up the look of the part.
Mounting holes are added to the back of the mop holder to allow a #6 1-1/2” drywall screw to pass through.
The mounting holes are extruded through the component. Finally a chamfer is added to the mounting holes to provide clearance for the screw heads.
Slicing and Printing
I name the Body and Component in Fusion 360 so that when imported into Super Slicer the mesh will be named.
The part is imported into Super Slicer and sliced vertically.
Finished Wall Hanger
The larger angle for the opening seems to have a positive effect on the part, it just feels better. I wouldn’t mind the holder being a little bit further from the wall, the mop seems to be making a bit too much contact. All in all, I will chalk this up as a win and call it good… for now…
