Fillament spool Bearing Hub

Fillament spool Bearing Hub by SimCity Mar 19, 2013

Description

Hub for my fillament spool i use for loose fillament broke due to not feeding fillament through guide....

Time to upgrade it. think i saw something simular for one of the other fillament spools but thought this one needed some love as well.

strpped out code for the center of hub, inserted emmetts bearing code in its pace and voila bearing hub

UPDATE: so uploading stuff at 1am, not the smartest move. Forgot the bearing file, which is slightly modified from emmetts and forgot to flag as work in progress as i never had time to actually print it yet.

It printed well, after I changed the tolerance setting to 0.7

You were quite correct. I was using a 2011 version of OpenSCAD. I now have a 2013 version.

I printed it. No parts will move. I may hit it with a large hammer.

you may need to tweak the tolerance and pitch angle a bit.

Like this, the file wants 'bearingSpool.scad' where did you get it from? :)

bearingSpool file is up. Don't upload things at 1am you forget to do things.

Its a slightly modified ver of emmetts bearing. made it a module and hard coded the params, so to adjust change the values in this and save it for the time being didn't get round to adding vars to the module.

The one issue with uploading things at 1am in the morning, you forget to add things.
