Bellowed Air Piston (100% printable) by Ndrew Feb 15, 2013


Just an idea for a printable piston I thought I'd jot down. It is designed to be printed without infill. The render is a cutaway, to show the bellows.

I hope this little thing extends downward as it is inflated from the top. Probably not much of a stroke until it is tuned properly.

I would like to use this thing to make a "pneumatic stepper motor" like my other thing: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:33853

Any feedback is welcome.

Print with no infill.

I have not printed this for I have no printer to do so (yet!) but would be very grateful to anyone who posts feedback on this quick print.
