Per request, .step (2 versions) and .sat files have been added. I was NOT able to save this as a .step or .sat thru Solidwoks with the holes on the leaves included for some reason, I've no idea why. Anyway, here you go. Good luck, and have fun!

Here's a hinge I drew on request of an instructor at my little community college. It's all in one, and there is absolutely no assembly required! This hinge is 1.500" wide by 2.000" tall , the leaves are .075" thick, the outer diameter of the pin housing is .175" and each leaf has (2) .250" dia countersunk holes. The holes are located .500" from the centerline horizontally and .719" from the midpoint vertically.
Both leaves rotate 90 degrees from horizontal in one direction, and 45 degrees from horizontal the other direction. The pin diameter is 0.080" and has small bosses on each end to keep it in the part.
The pictures attached don't show the holes, as this was just as test print. Also, there's a short video in the "download this thing" area of this part.
I'm only publishing the .stl file right now, if you'd like me to send you the 2012 Solidworks .sldprt file, leave me a comment with your email address and I'll gladly send it to you. Let me know if you find this useful please!


The printer we are lucky enough to have at Kishwaukee College in Illinois is a Dimension uPrint SE Plus. We use the .stl manipulation and print management software that comes with the printer called CatalystEX, and we are currently running version 4.3 of that. This hinge was printed with a resolution of .010", solid infill, and with support material generation set to "smart". One hinge with thse parameters takes about 35 minutes to print in a flat position and about 90 minutes to print in a vertical orientation.

I printed one of these and it wasn't functional, perhaps because I decreased the size slightly. I'll try again without altering the size, thanks for posting!

I'm sorry that it didn't work for you. I've never made any smaller than this original size, so maybe that's an issue. The way other printers use support material might have an impact on the functionality also. I use a pretty high-end (for 2012 at least, when they bought it) printer supplied by my school, and I printed this with the leaves of the hinge parallel to the printing platen and the pin holding circular feature facing up.
I hope you get a working version printed, let me know if I can help in any way.

Can you post a .smb, .sat, .stp, .step, or .3dx file? I would like to incorporate it into designs in Autodesk 123D Design.
