Customizable Plate Bracket for Aluminium Extrusion Profiles (Misumi 2020, 2040, 4040, ...) by mightynozzle Aug 27, 2017


This is a customizable thing that allows you to create and print aluminum extrusion plate brackets for different types and sizes of extrusion profiles.

I've also added the 21 brackets for 2020 and for the short side of the 2040 profile as .stl files.

If you need some hammer nuts with a good value for money, I can highly recommend these ones: hammer nuts
I used the Drillpro M5 hammer nuts for my AM8.

This is part of my Aluminium Extrusions series. Follow me, if you want to be informed about a new part of this series!

Customizable Settings

Use the Customizer or OpenSCAD to create your own customized set of brackets.

You only need to set these few parameters to get all the 21 brackets automatically:

  • width of mounting side of the extrusion profile (20mm for 2020 profile)
  • length and thickness of the bracket
  • number of rails (2020 has 1, 2040 has 1 and 2 rails)
  • screw hole settings

I don't get it, over a thousand likes and not a single comment or "I made one"? You have done an absolutely stellar job of this. Putting up a design for a few brackets would have been good, but a paramaterized version with the scad source file and all the extra options etc? That's going the extra mile. Everyone who uploads to this site should take note: this is how you do a really useful design.

This is very nicely done and makes me want to go buy some Al extrusion, but I don't have closets full of the stuff just sitting around, so it gets a like but I'm not going to print one any time soon. I think most people have the extrusion they used to build their printer and not an inch more.

Silence means consent. I thought so far, at least. But your compliments and your donation raise my expectations two levels higher! :) Double thanks!
