Here's a handy organizer and work station for those of you that use epoxy in your 3d printing or hobby endeavours. Easy to print and a small footprint. Please check out the YouTube video for all the facts!
Join us for this first instalment in our multi-part series on putting together your own YouTube studio with the help of a 3D printer.
As already mentioned, while we have a specific window in mind for a window vent, we want to come up with solution that we can easily customize so that a window vent design that can be used for different windows.
So rather than hard coding the window size, we'll begin by creating variables to accommodate the parts of the window design that we will want to adjust according to the size and shape of the window we're trying to make a vent for, and just as importantly, won't create sections that are too big to fit on our printer.
So the first variable we want to create is one that identifies the build size of our printer:
kBuildSize = [200,200,200];
Now when our code needs to consider the maximum dimension in any axis it can refer to our kBuildSize variable and compute what is required.
We'll also need a variable for our hose size. But because OpenSCAD works in miiimeteres and a large proportion of our potential market is the north american market which uses imperial measurement, we'll first write a little function that does metric conversion:
function mm(inches) = inches * 25.4;
Now, as an example we can declare a hose diameter variable:
kHoseDiameter = mm(3);
kHoseMountSidePadding = 10;
We're going to assume that while the window gap may be out of square, that the interior channels are consistent. We could of course incorporate accommodations for the.
Now we'll need variables that describe the window opening:
3D print your own house numbers and save a bundle! You can download the free New Orleans style that was posted to Thingiverse or create your own to make a unique and worthwhile addition to your house or mailbox.
There's four styles to choose from, and a number of options available for each style. When you create the House Numbers you want, your download area will provide you with the files you need to print a test digit. Go ahead and print it, and if it meets your requirements, you'll find the style you created has been loaded to your cart
After you submit the form, your request is submitted for processing. You'll be sent an email when it is ready for download. When that happens just return to Printable Science and after you've logged on, click on"Your Downloads" in the main menu.
