A 3D-printed Dragon Doorhandle.
Modeled in Sculptris and Zbrush.
3D Printed in a "stainless steel"- Material at i.materialize.
(Although they call it "stainless steel", i found it rusts if you put it into water)
It is designed for the 8x8 mm square spindles that are used in most european countries.
The dragon is fixed to this rods in the old-fashioned way: with a steel pin, that runs through the square rod and locks the doorhandle to the rod. ( see video) If your steel rod doesn´t have the coresponding hole, you can drill it in or get one of them adjustable rods in a home depot store.
The dragon has a square hole of 8,2x8,2 mm and should fit tight on a standard 8x8 mm rod. Beqause of manufacturing tolerances however it might be necessary to grind open the hole or hone down the rod a little with a file.
It is not suited for Outdoor-Use! It will rust!
