0.2mm layer height on my Velleman K8200.
Added dividers to make three compartments.
This is great. I dont know SCAD or any designing tools - but love this idea. I would love one that is about 40-50mm high 50-60mm diameter with 3 compartments like this. Is there a way to do that without knowing SCAD designing?
Absolutely! Open the original design in the Customizer and you can change all these parameters.
Great idea. I was also thinking about a dividing option in Customizer. But I didn't realize it. Seeing your make, I propobly make an option with the number of compartments (1 to 7 maybe). Is there anything special to consider?
Got a few spare minutes :)
Here is the code: http://otio.se/~jonas/Container_v1_6.scad
Change the compartment parameter and see the magic :P
Many thanks, looks good. What do you think, a option for divider wall thickness may be usefull? I think 1/2 wall thickness should be perfect as default.
Yeah, that would be great. In the make I hade a divider of 2/3 for the thickness. But 1/2 might be better.
I will change it and post it in the evening. I hope it was not to hard doing the change. My code always tends to get ugly...
No, not hard at all!
Remeber to move the dividers accordingly as you change the thickness of the walls :)
Something along the way of
rotate((360 / compartments) * a) translate([-(wall_thickness * div_thick / 2), 0, bottom_thick]) cube([wall_thickness div_thick, diameter / 2, height]);
Many thanks for your work. I print a 60mm jar with 4 compartments and it works very well. I have updated the SCAD file, if you wanna check it. Many thanks for your work!
I'm glad I could help! The SCAD looks fine!
I was thinking of making a 1 to 6 compartment option :)
I can make it and send you the code if you'd like?
