Stethoscope Holder for doctors and nurses #3DThursday #3DPrinting
If you are a dr/nurse or you just play one on tv, this hook will keep you organized for grab and go. From tinkerheart on Thingiverse:
One day at work I met an anesthesiologist who had a nifty stethoscope holder and thought I should get one for myself. So, once home, I downloaded a few different designs, printed them and tried them out.
Some stethoscope holders had clips which just didn’t properly grab the thin scrubs we have at work, others weren’t durable enough, and then there were those which didn’t fit my stethoscope.
So, I made a few designs of my own.
I prefer a stethoscope holder which can also hold a pencil light and a pen, but since some will prefer a simpler stethoscope holder, I’ve also included a version which will only hold a stethoscope.
The regular stethoscope holder does not differentiate between which stethoscope binaural is furthest to the back, but if you opt for the heart shaped one you have to get used to attaching the stethoscope binaurals in a specific way, is easy enough after having tried it a few times. Both the regular holder and the heart fit my fairly standard sized Littmann Classic III stethoscope and my large Omron Sprague Rappaport model, but obviously I have not tested them with all available stethoscopes.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
