Open SCAD – Space X Grid Fin Coaster Trivet Thingamajig!

Check this out! I am a big fan of YouTuber Winston Moy (www.youtube.com/user/krayvis) who runs a CNC channel and in a recent episode he created a Space X Grid-Fin Trivet inspired by what else? Yes a Grid-Fin from a Space X rocket. So he talked about some of the challenges in modeling this in Fusion 360 and hit me, can I do something like this in Open-SCAD and give it back to the 3D, CNC and Laser cutting community as both code and a customizer on Thingiverse and the answer is YES! Now its hard to 3D print a trivet so I started thinking and it hit me, a coaster!

Now too this is a very flexible design in that you set height, if there is a bottom or not, circle size (I suggest leaving as is) as well as indenting for a mug. Now for flexibility I left it large so it could be output as an SVG for CNC or Laser cutting to make a trivet. However say you want a smaller verion what do you do? Just import the STL into your slicer and resize it!

Oh and another thing you will notice is I added a the Space-X logo to the center of the Grid-Fin for added effect! So if your looking for a unique personalized gift for the Space enthusiast and want to show off your maker skills then this is the model for you!

CNC (3020 3040 3060) Alignment Collar for Dial Indicators!

Please visit OpenSCAD.DIY3DTech.com for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be designing an alignment collar for the CNC to accuracy measure the movements in the X, Y and Z axis. Now this is semi parametric as the X/Y strut is user definable and because I made this a customizer in did want to get all “logic” based as I had issue with the Pegboard application. So I simply bound it by value. However with the code you can configure it as you want!

Also if your looking for USB Dial indicators (which recommend) for this, look no further as here they are: diy3dtech.com/usb-dial-indicator-kit/

Pegboard and Holes Utility!

Please visit OpenSCAD.DIY3DTech.com for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be taking a look at a utility I developed in Open-SCAD for generating various sizes of pegboards and yes pegs. The idea is wanted as utility that could create both so I could import the result into other projects. Also while I have uploaded this to thingiverse, Customizer seems to be having an issue with the double “if” statements in the code logic.

CNC Bit Fan!

Please visit OpenSCAD.DIY3DTech.com for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be re-adapteding a CNC bit fan from Other Mill (blog.othermachine.co/introducing-the-bit-fan-a-new-othermill-accessory-you-can-make), this version is a little different as we where unclear as to licencing so we developed our own version in Open SCAD.

Warning! Print and use at YOUR OWN RISK! This is a HIGH speed spinning object and it can become a projectile!

Modified Water Bath Design!

Please visit OpenSCAD.DIY3DTech.com for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be looking at new water-bath which I designed in Open SCAD for a small CNC machine (a 3040 in this case) to cut and engrave various objects that either require cooling or suppression of particulate such as carbon fiber during the cutting process for safety.

Also if you looking for the mini-vice I used in this build, you can order it here: goo.gl/kw9oaH
