Open SCAD – Tool Post Grinder!

Please visit OpenSCAD.DIY3DTech.com for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be looking at our design up this quick change tool post holder for a small hand grinder! As I have been working on machining couplers for the micro-mill project, I found the need to index grub screw holes so I created this interesting tool post grinder for the mini-lathe and to my surprise this worked out rather well! So I will be working on a larger 555 motor version soon!

Open SCAD – Micro Vise Project!

 

Please visit OpenSCAD.DIY3DTech.com for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be creating a copy of a nifty micro-vise (see vise here: amzn.to/2E4gQsU) from Amazon we picked up and decided to design our own 3D printable version of this in Open-SCAD!

To build this you will need some extra parts (hardware) and I have made a small list below. In addition you will also need a 1/4-20 bolt about 3 inches long and a matching nut to your tastes. I printed the jaws in PLA (see more here: amzn.to/2SXcIzU ) and the bumper in TPU (see more here: amzn.to/2RQsqQ3 ).

—Parts List:
Rod Stock.: amzn.to/2WQoPRL
Spring Kit..: amzn.to/2TK1lvp (VERY handy!)
M3 Bolt Kit: amzn.to/2TK1oY7 (for bumpers)

–Other Handy Vises:
Desk Vise…: amzn.to/2I8Qji3
Multi Angle.: amzn.to/2SDaMjf
6 Inch Jaws: amzn.to/2I5alu0
4 Inch Jaws: amzn.to/2I5aXzO
Mini Vise…..: amzn.to/2WVxl1W
Suction Vise: amzn.to/2BwQjmb

Open SCAD – 3D Printing A Chuck Fixture!

In this episode, we will be revisiting the NYC Style Chuck concept (see more here: youtu.be/wB7eX_EXifQ) with a fixture printed in PETG (see more here: amzn.to/2VRKxo1) on the 3D Printer!

This has been working out surprisingly well for us, as while you aren’t going to use it to machine aerospace parts, it is a functional addition to any small CNC such as the 3040 (see more here: diy3dtech.com/purchase-3040-cnc-router/)

Get the STL from Thingiverse: www.thingiverse.com/thing:3404442

Fixture Parts:
T-Nuts: amzn.to/2t7vAkt
10mm Bolts: amzn.to/2t46TVR

Open SCAD – That Lazy Machinist Bench Block!

One of the things I have wanted for a while is to share the linkage between classical machining and 3D printing as they basically are the same thing. Where CNC or classical machining is subtractive and 3D printing is additive the work-flows are still the same from CAD (Computer Aided Design) to CAM (computer Aided Manufacture) and finely production. With this I stumbled across That Lazy Machinist (see more here: www.thatlazymachinist.com/) who made a series of blueprints available online (see more here: diy3dtech.com/thatlazymachinistblueprints to download them) so I decided to convert them to 3D prints to demonstrate the interrelations of the disciplines. So the first project I selected was the Bench Block or Anvil.

This is a multipurpose bench tool and in fact converts well to 3D printing as the idea is this used punch out pin (i.e. the hole in the top) as well as hold round stock with the 45 degree bevel across the top. You will find them used quite a bit in gunsmithing and the like where there are a lot of pins which have to be inserted or removed. With this the plastic reduces the chance of marring the object which the pin is being either removed or inserted.

This one was printed in PETG (see more here: amzn.to/2TruUln) with the top annealed with a heat gun to strengthen. I would also suggest Bridge Nylon (see more here: amzn.to/2S2LMSN) for extra durability, yet if does fail after a while. Simply print a new one! That is the beauty of additive manufacturing!
