Parametric Dowel Rod Holder


Source: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:83857

Description: Part of a design for my filament holder, it's just a simple block that can be modified to hold different sizes of dowels. Play around with the settings in the scad file to figure out how they respond. A basic rundown: Rod_diameter: The exact size of your dowel. The script adds in 3mm of play. holder_protrusion: The amount of distance the "U" protrudes from the face of the base b_height: If you'd like a taller base to give you more 'gripping' area to drill/glue, make this larger than 0. p_width: This is the thickness of the U itself. It is set at 5mm, which is thick enough to hold quite a bit of rod. Can set this thinner or thicker as desired.
