I saw a lot of cable chains..
But not one of them i found to print was printable in once.
Also i thought, it would be good to have different sizes etc.
So i tried to make a OpenSCAD script for this.
Just for fun.
I printed some parts, for testing. It works as designed.
Have fun with this.
Here are the scad and stl files.
If someone likes to give it a shot.
Settings in Script
The following stuff can be changed:
// chain parts to connect and print - 8
// Total Length of one chain peace - 30
// Width of the chain - 12
// Hight of the chain - 12
// Wall thinkness - 1.2
// Space between the chain parts and the matches - 0.2
// Connection tweak - 0
// Angle for maximum bending of one peace. - 45
// Possible values from 0 - 90
I tweaked the Connection between the single chain parts a bit.
Its now possible to add or subtract a bit to the connection cylinders. So it can be more sticky or freed for better printing.
Added the possibility to adjust the angle, each pcs is allowed to be moved.
