Glass-filled nylon polymer gripper plates and steel for the two levers:

Steel for everything:

PLA isn't a good choice for this since it doesn't yield. It shatters without any warning signs.

I guess it would be a good idea to oversize everything quite a bit to make room for thicker walls.

Edit: I'm not sure why safety concerns always get downvoted on this sub, but there really is quite a lot of force involved and the device might be right next to your face when it violently shatters. Regular PLA is brittle. I'd even recommend wearing glasses/goggles when removing supports, because every once in a while a small sharp piece breaks off and flies in a random direction. PLA is cheap and super easy to print, but it does have its fair share of downsides.

Cool cool cool. Here's a link to the product if you want it. It's a great blow-dryer, except for not coming with a concentrator.

Get yourself a pair of these (if you don't already):

Then you just measure and model. Look at the basic shape first and model the basic shape. Then add (and subtract) as necessary.

I find using OpenSCAD a little easier for duplicating a real world part because you can use variables and fine tune with variable values rather than having to redraw something. (in OpenSCAD you write code instead of click-to-draw).

3D scanning would also be an option if you have that setup (been meaning to print a 3d scanning rig...couple of good options on thingiverse)

This is on my list of prints to make (although I'll never get the time). For anyone interested a good, small, and family priced wireless charger is the square one from anker. I'd highly recommend it. Link in case anyone wants to try it themselves:

Honestly I should just buy a 20 pack of these and then print a frame that holds them all in a circle so the hose can have a perfectly smooth track to go through

If you want to go all out you can get the wadsworth set. We use these to get into tight spaces taking apart stamping dies. You can put a pipe on it. I think it can take like 400lbs of torque. They are awesome.

Digital calipers! There are other methods, and certainly better calipers than this, but these are way more than enough to get yourself started for cheap. I have two nice sets of calipers, but at one point I just bought four of these and keep one in my office at home, one at work, one in the garage, and one more just stashed in a drawer because I use them all the time:

For this print all I did was measure the diameter of the cable and the diameter of the knockout. That was enough to give me all the info I needed.

If it's a relatively simple shape, you can measure it up with some calipers and be on your way. For most 3d printing applications you don't need to go drop a bunch of money on some Mitutoyo or other "high end" calipers; These would do just fine.

Another trick for something with a lot more shapes to it, is to take a picture of it as squarly straight down as you can with a ruler next to it, so you can import the image as a 'canvas' into your modeling software, scale it until an inch on the ruler equals an inch in the software, and then you can trace the shapes up pretty well that way without having to do a ton of reiteration. Just keep material shrinkage etc in mind when you go to print if you're using a material susceptible to that.

I got a nice digital one on Amazon for about $20. There are cheaper ones but I really like the digital readout.

u/B4DB1TB0J4CK · 1 pointr/functionalprint

Thanks for the guild! I uploaded the model to thingiverse, both with the holes I used for my tools and a version without them so you can modify it for your needs! (if you have the right roll of tape that is!)





Glue stick is from a 3 pack that was at my local dollar store

Flashlight I got at walmart 2 years ago

Scraper is a 2 inch paint scraper that's been floating around the house for years

edit: formatting

u/mgc418 · 3 pointsr/functionalprint

Looks like an old Microsoft trackball i used years ago. Still have it somewhere i think.

Edit: link was obviously not this expensive back in the day. Was like $50 then.

u/55555 · 3 pointsr/functionalprint

I know what sub i'm in but seriously dude:

You have to factor in the value of your own time.

Cool fix anyway.

u/gmolevitz · 1 pointr/functionalprint

Sure! I used two microphone gooseneck arms screwed together (each has one male and one female end). The thread size is non-standard, so to attach it to a base, I found it easier to adapt it to 3/8"-16 using one of these. I clamped the printed assembly onto the end through a 1/8" thick aluminum plate using two nuts.

I uploaded the .stl files to thingiverse as well.

u/Mycoldshower · 1 pointr/functionalprint

I love this slide steel idea, maybe combined with some slide capo like this:

Or a very high action like on a Dobro style guitar combined with some sort of capo that claps on the fretboard:

Just thinking out loud here, but I fully understand your point about not taking the easy road at all. I believe you might be right here, full chords are the way to go.

u/laserdemon1 · 1 pointr/functionalprint

You and I had the same mindset this weekend. I made this one.
Pic sucks I know, here is the model.

I took this model for my FJ Cruiser

Made it a little longer and added the fast inductive charger from Anker and resized it for my Galaxy S7 Edge. Also added the honeycomb for cooling as the previous version caused my phone to overheat while quick charging.

Anker 30w Quick Charge 3.0 adapter

I printed the prototypes in PLA and this one in ABS thinking it was going to be the final version, but I tweaked some stuff today. lol.

u/mr_pgh · 1 pointr/functionalprint

Here is the profile gauge I used. Maybe it could help you?

u/salsation · 24 pointsr/functionalprint

If you're going to make real use of this for hauling sheets, the real Gorilla Gripper is worth the $27 they charge. Unless you want to spend "just a few minutes" modeling and printing... which will be hours and will take days with waiting. Then of course your version will break :D

u/jonneygee · 2 pointsr/functionalprint

Also not OP, but I’d use a drill bit extender. Then you can go right through the middle if you want.

u/vuxnomica · 1 pointr/functionalprint

No these are prismacolor markers.

But they are just as fat as a paint pen
