Parametric spider coupling by modilion Oct 30, 2012

Description

This parametric spider coupling is a redo of Zignig's spider coupling ; written from scratch to prevent some manifold issues I was having with Zignig's version. Zignig's allows for multiple coupling legs while this simple scad is limited to dual leg layouts.

Both bore holes have individual sizes.

I always just increased the size of the base plate a bit, and jammed the coupler on top. Maybe a touch of glue. If you want to do it right, could increase the base thickness, and add a hole. My attempts to print screw holes as small as a set screw have always been ugly. I've just had better luck drilling a hole after printing. I can modify the SCAD if you like.
How do you attach them? I dont see holes for set screws (or the nut that would allow the set screw to work in plastic)
