Thanks for sharing the Fusion file. I am still new at this and could not figure out how to do the thread properly. Helped me a lot.

You're welcome. It has always seemed strange to me when people share their work without actually sharing their work. :-) We ALL had to learn from someone and imo, should ALL pay it forward. Thanks!

Is it possible to upload female to male versions, where the female would be GHT and the male BSP, and vice versa?

I am having trouble with this one - I have tried making a number of versions and all seem to leak (through the material) when under pressure. I I would welcome advice on how best to address this.

Hi. My first one leaked. Key things are to use at least 3 or 4 perimeters (even 5) and at least 40% infill (Slic3r calculates differently to others and is what I used back then) and print near the higher end of temperature range for your filament.

Remember that, in most cases, perimeter count trumps infill percentage by a large margin, when it comes to overall strength.

A few percent more extrusion multiplier than you might general like may help, if the above does not do it -- I mean, if you're a under extruding a little already. That would cause leak fractures for sure.

I have found that PLA is stronger, less likely to leak and far less likely to degrade out in the weather, than ABS. Very surprising. Expected the opposite on all counts. But there it is.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

thanks for the timely response, will let you know how i go

Thank you for this. Great job. Is a female to male version on the cards?

Would you mind sharing your design file? I would like to make a slightly different adapter, but it would be great to start from something.

Not at all. I thought I had. Oops. Just edited the description, accordingly.

Hey, thanks! Makes things a lot easier for those of use who aren't proficient at Fusion 360 yet.
