Gutter Brackets for old Gutter

Today I designed a Gutter Bracket using ThinkerCad, the Gutter was originally made with vinyl using ABS Brackets to support the Vinyl Gutter.

The gutter dimensions are 2.75 x 4.5 inches this is for a gutter that has hard to find parts.




I believe that ABS is the best material for this part, as I have not yet purchased any PETG.

Will post the results when printing has completed.

This is the sort of part you want to last a long time. It will be outside exposed to weather. I wouldn't trust printed ABS to last very long in sun rain and snow.

I only Have PLA and ABS, What would you Print this with.

Let's take a test print to see if the Bracket fits my sample Gutter piece.





Looks good. Now lets print the whole Gutter Bracket in Brown.

I probably wouldn't print it.

If you have to print it, plan on painting it when it's done to protect it from UV.

3D printing can do a lot of things, but it can't do everything.

Printed the Gutter Bracket



Anything is better than having to replace the whole gutter system.

Ok! Ok! ok.

I did forget the backbone, this will not take very long to add. And will add additional strength to the bracket.
