New: check the customizer version at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:44850 !
This is a parametric hose coupler through a webservice. It can create STL files directly for adpators (adapters?) that couple two hoses or pipes. Hey, you can even make funnels with it!
Just provide your own dimensions and get the file!
You could use the provided openscad file and tune it manually... but it will be much easier to get an STL with your settings through this webservice:
Just go to https://www.tecrd.com/page/liens/universal_hose_adapter&lang=fr
Enter your settings (see the image on the left side for some help), and press a button.
Update: Following esteadle's advice, I added so called parametric "barbs" (correct me if I'm wrong). A few parameters changed and the STL generation is now much faster (no more using openscad unions and so).
The shape of the main connection was redesigned a bit to make it stronger. Though, the best approach is to make it thicker when:
- the two cones have very different radii
- there is a big overhang (thin join makes tricky prints because it also flattens the internal angle). Another parameter would probably be useful to differentiate the two effects.
Trial and error seem to be the best way (so far)!
Hope it still is OK
As long as I have some CPU left the service is free and does not even require an email. Anyhow, please drop me a word if you find this useful, so I know if this kind of tool is worth the time spent on it ;)
Idem when you have some requests (eg. a handle for funnels?)
Note: I will probably change the URL when I'm done translating my website. As for now, it's an english page within a (mostly) french website, sorry guys!
