We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is a dual helix flexible coupling. The bore sizes on the STL are 6mm and .375". The length of the coupling is 2.35".
This is a plastic variant of coupling found on Sterling Drive Products coupling catalog
I printed this coupling with the following parameters
Firmware: Jetty Sailfish
Filament: ABS 1.75mm
Extruder temp: 230C
Bed temp: 115
Print speed 60mm sec
Travel speed 80 mm sec
The STL file already has supports built in so there is no need to add additions
Print the coupling and the supports are easily cut using a hobby knife
Clean up and use as desired
I am using this design on Z axis stepper to leadscrew coupling on a 3d printer that I designed and am in process of building
I have also included my native inventor file and Step file if you wish to do some changes
Just for a note I printed the first one with a higher temperature and it turned out it was very brittle so do some testing on your temperatures.
