Dishwasher Mesh Retainer - 3D design by southseaangus on Oct 28, 2017

Deep inside my 15 year old dishwasher is a wire mesh filter which was fashioned into the shape of a cylinder by a plastic retainer. After many years of use the plastic had disintegrated to leave just the mesh sheet and so the dishes were never properly clean. With this retainer printed in PLA I recreated the cylinder, fitted it back in place and the dishes have been properly cleaned ever since! My design is far from perfect but it has worked for the last 3 months and I have no intention of removing the filter again until I have to.
