Customizable Hinge by agweber Mar 15, 2013

Description

Update - April 14th
--Added support material
--Options to print vertical or horizontal (though I don't think horizontal will work very well)

Customizable hinge that prints all at once! You will have to break it free at first.

Warning: Hinge does not come apart like many others! (unless it's only got 2 joints)

More to come!
--Plans to have half-hinge and removable pin options. These will allow you to use the scad to include the hinges as part of your own creations!

How can I set the center to center distance between the holes? I need to make a hinge for my duplicator 4 front door. Thanks in advance.

Printed flat it will have issues with printing around the hinge cylinders, upright is between the cylinders. There's an issue either way..

Printing flat but on a raft might help, although the updated rafts are quite terrible. Printing it on painters tape works though, comes right off! I think it would not print upright, given the delicate space it needs between the gaps in the hinge knobs.

I wonder if this would print better upright or flat.. Starting to think upright would cause less difficulty in breaking it free and would cause a better working hinge with lower possible tolerance.
