It's my Parametric Fixing angle.

if you like !!! Please !!! make it one and post it

You can chose width, height, thickness, the number of screw vertical, the number of screw horizontal, screw mounted or recessed.
Creates a hex or cylindrical head screws.

The possibilities are very numerous.

You will therefore be able now with the customizer of realize your Fixing angle.

Now, you have more excuses to tinker (;

If you are having any difficulties, need advices or you want me to make changes, I remain at your disposal.

I am looking for a bracket to mount a board at an incline. Would you consider adding a Customizer feature to change the bracket angle? That should serve a lot of special or one-off cases.

Thanks for your message.

Yes, that's precisely what I had in mind! This has got to be useful to a lot of people.

How about something similar for your table leg brackets at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:585325, too?

Parametric Fixing Table Leg -OpenScad

I'm sorry but I do not understand your question

Sorry, it was so clear in my internal conversation :)

What I mean is, giving an angle to the tube of a table-leg bracket would allow for table legs to extend outward, the way you typically see in small tables. As a random example, this manufacturer page illustrates the point: http://www.haslev.com/produkter/sofaborde/symphony/

yes thank you, It's a cool idea.
I will certainly modify the program so it does.
I hope to be able to do quickly but it takes me a bit of time

Nice work!

I'd like to let you know about CraftML, a new tool for making parametric models like the fixing angle box you designed.

Inspired by your design, I used CraftML to make a similar model:

3ders has an article about CraftML.

Hope you will find CraftML useful for your future 3D modeling endeavors!

Hey! Thanks for your quick response! I have only used Customizer once, so this was a little challenge. But, I did manage to set the countersink to zero as you suggested. The print came out with little, if any "sag". Over the years, I've used a number of metal brackets like this and there's always concerns: 1, they are metal, so they can rust even if galvanized, 2. you generally have to buy a "4 pack" even if you don't need 4, 3., they come with screws that you can't always use because of length.

So, you've saved me and others time with this design! I'd post pictures but I don't know how yet.

Great effort and thanks! I needed something like this to use on an outdoor project. Will use stainless screws to attach. So far, I have just printed the first bracket in the download list using a Davinci. Not unexpectedly, the top rim of the two holes in the vertical leg sagged a little, but still usable. For a third printing, I "laid" the part down so no leg was vertical. Surprisingly, there WASN'T much sag at all.

I like the thickness you chose for the bracket, but, the countersunk holes look too deep. I'll probably just go with a washer and a flat head screw.

Thank you for your message. I think you do not need to use a washer. The countersunk holes are customizable. You just need to adjust the countersunk holes.

In Screw tab, you can change : Height Head Screw (Height of the screw head, if you want that screw is flush chose 0).

You'll simply the screw hole, without head screw. this will avoid sagging.

Post pictures of your designs with them!
