Ball and Socket Tri-Connector

Ball and Socket Tri-Connector by Vivenda Apr 1, 2013

Description

Connects multiple pod chains to form a tripod with a ball joint at the top for a single chain.

NOTE: This thing isn't designed to be printed in ABS/PLA. The tolerance in the pieces don't allow them to fit into each other. A socket printed in Nylon will fit on the ball. A ball joint printed in Nylon may potentially get stuck or break in a socket printed in ABS/PLA (if it fits).

Hey perlguy, I printed these at 247C (though the readings fluctuated between 245-257 throughout).

I don't have a heated bed. I printed these on a glass plate with blue tape and a thin layer of UHU glue spread for better adhesion. I know there's better ways which I'm still investigating such as a garolite plate or other adhesives.

Cheers!
What temperature do you print your nylon at?

Also, do you use a heated bed with nylon? If so, how hot do you have the bed?

Thanks!
