We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Similar to http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:7153 but many parameters. Defaults are a 5mm to 7.8mm shaft which is what I measured on my machine. I got rid of the cut on one side as that led to slightly uneven pressure inducing a bit of wobble. In this model you can change: shaft diameters, bolt sizes, washers (if used), nut traps, and overall dimensions. This will make a strong shaft coupling without using much plastic. The code also makes a cleaner stl then my previous coupling.
Open the scad file and generate the custom coupling. Parameters are commented.

So what's this mean?
We're sure Griffin_Nicoll would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
