Parametric Clamp by pgreenland Oct 7, 2012

Description

Parametric clamp. Supplied as an OpenSCAD module, almost all dimensions can be changed.

Customisations include base (enabled / disabled with size parameters). Automatically spaced screw holes on the clamp jaws (enabled / disabled with diameters and optional nut recesses).

Full list of parameters in instructions.

Great idea . I would love to suggest a possible addition. On the back side of clamp , make an interface such that the clamps can be secured back to back and locked into place at 90 degree and 45 degree increments thereby connecting two rods together.at 45, 90, etc.. Possible base needs to be designed to intelligently lock in the opposite fit .. Pins and holes with a bolt through middle ?

Instructions

  1. Load design into OpenSCAD

  2. Customise parameters as required.

Parameters: base : Enable / disable clamp base base_thickness : Thickness of clamp base if enabled base_width : Width of clamp base if enabled ring_thickness : Tickness of clamp ring ring_inner_dia : Inner diameter of clamp ring jaws_thickness : Thickness of clamp jaws jaws_width : Width of clamp jaws break_width : Width of break in clamp jaws screw_diameter : Screw hole diameter screw_count : Screw hole count nut_recess : Enable / disable nut recess in clamp nut_diameter : Nut recess diameter nut_thickness : Nut recess depth height : Clamp height

  1. Export STL

  2. Print! or if OpenSCAD isn't your thing import the STL into the CAD software of your choice for incorporation into another design.
