I needed (wanted) a longer handle for this thing so i did it.

Just a quick OpenSCAD that slices the skaft.stl in three pieces (bottom, middle and top) and then, it puts them back together changing the length of the middle section to fit the length that has been entered as a parameter.

I tagged this with the "thing-a-day" tag... Oups! I was too late to sign-up so, I guess I shouldn't. I have no problem to remove the tag :-( just let me know


Just click on "I like it" if it is the case. If you don't like it I will not be upset if you click on "I like it" anyway.

Do not print any of the STL!

Wait until tomorrow for a nice (hopefully) change design.

The handle in the pictures has a length of 90mm (add another 30mm for the thread and you get a 120mm tall print)

This is great! I liked the original, I love the derivative. I was unaware of the import command in OpenSCAD. I went back to the online manual (http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/OpenSCAD_User_Manual/The_OpenSCAD_Languagehttp://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/O... ) and found it wasn't there. Importing other STL's into OpenSCAD really opens up the ability to derive existing designs without crawling through lots of code or even models designed in other file types. Thanks for the lesson.

Thanks! And thank you very much for the comment!!

Unfortunatelly, OpenSCAD only likes the STL that it likes :-P

Here I have been able to use "import" because the STL uploaded by Rasle500 are just perfect!!
