We had an IKEA Kitchen Carousel fitted about 15 yrs ago. The wire fence that stops things falling off is held on with a number of plastic pegs which break from time to time.

I managed to get a few replacements from IKEA a bit back (at no charge - Good Service) but when I last went in they could not help

I can 3D print from an existing design or adapt an existing design but even after several attempts I could not come up with something using FreeCAD that came close - I'm just not that good at it and the learning curve appears to me to need crampons and an ice axe to get up.

Has anybody come across anything like this already drawn up? I have done a Google search and tried Thingyverse with no joy.

Any help will be acknowledged and highly appreciated.

You could try Thingiverse or Yeggi for pre designed 3D printed designs.

Post a fully-dimensioned 2D sketch of it (pencil and paper) and someone will model it for you.

As you say, FreeCAD has a steep learning curve. If it looks like the one above, drawing it from 3D solids that have Boolean operations performed on them might be easier than using sketches.

You could try OpensCAD, but if you want a facsimile of the one above, it might be tricky from a standing start. However, if you can live with a functional replacement, it becomes much easier: its body is a cube. It is then partially cut by a horizontal cylinder. At the base, a cylinder projects, joined to a truncated cone (in OpensCAD a cone is a cylinder), cut through with a cube.

Thank you to everyone for their suggestions and especially a public thankyou to the forum member who privately via a message offered to create the stl file from a drawing.

Despite spending a lot of time over several days searching Thingyverse and the entire Internet using both Bing and Google and every search term I could think of; I could not locate the part but a member here has posted a link with just what I need.

Thanks again to everyone who helped.

Nick
