any-angle rod clamp, for diagonal reprap support
by profezzorn, published
This rod clamp allows you to connect two 8mm rods at any angle you want. The scad can easily be modified for other rod sizes. Intended for a diagonal reprap support.
Print 2, clamp around rods at desired angle and secure with an M3x25 screw (with nut and washers). For a diagonal brace like the one in the picture you'll need an 8mm threaded rod around 25cm long. For extra strength and vibration control, you can put something soft/rubbery between the two halves, but then you'll probably need a longer screw.
The scad file is parametric, so you can make it stronger or fit other rod sizes.
