About this Object

This is a hotel towel rack, so named because it is the same type of rack that you find in hotels.


This rack has it's right end at the origin, protrudes out of the Z=0 "wall" by 11 units in the postive Z direction, and to the left of the origin (positive X) by 24 units to the center of the other base plate. The base plates are 1.3 units in radius, so the total length is 26.6 units. The bar on the underside extends down 3.4 units in the -Y direction. The main bar on the body is 1 unit in diameter, all the other bars are 0.8 units in diameter (including the bar on the underside).

Problems and Future Work

Change the sphere sweeps to cylinders and toruses (for both speed and looks). Smooth out the seams in the wall plates.

I personally would prefer extending in the -Z direction rather than plus, and extending to the right of the origin, not the left.
