T-Slot printer parts
by julienM, published
Not all the parts I designed will be used in the printer, but some might be useful to others.
These are for 30x30 extrusions with a 6 mm slot.

Some of the parts have a strong and a light variant. After designing and printing the strong variants, I noticed that they were massively over-engineered.
The rod holders are for 8 mm smooth rods. M3 nuts and bolts can be used to fix the rods.
All the parts can be attached using the t-slut-nuts. An M6 nut should fit snugly. The parts with two attachment points can also use the double nut. This makes it much easier to slide in and attach the parts.
The feet are higher due to the changed design of my printer. Also, they contain eyelets on the underside. This allows cable-ties to be attached, cleaning up the cables. One foot can hold a switch, another a power-supply cable.
The cable clips can be inserted after the fact, fixed with a quarter turn. The design is very sensitive to the actual printed tolerances.
