Summary

This is a holder to attach two fiber optic cable to a 8mm smooth rod and allow easy switching between cables for optical experiments.

This component is part of the Open-source optics project, whose goal is to radically reduce the cost of scientific optical hardware: by the [Michigan Tech's Open Sustainability Technology Research Group]( http://www.mse.mtu.edu/MOST).

Instructions

Print on your favorite open-source 3D printer. The two fiber optic cables are placed within the holder is held in place with a set screw.

Use thumb screw from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:30500 to attach it to an 8mm smooth rod.

If you need the base go to http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:28133
