Hi, would it be possible for you to post the solid works model or whatever program you designed it, I would like to adapt it for use in 2020 aluminium extrusions.

You can check this remix for 2020 aluminum extrusions. (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1259268)

you already have the original cad files (.rsdoc).
to be opened using Design SPark Mechanical (check radiospares website: http://www.rs-online.com/designspark/electronics/eng/page/mechanical) => free CAD tool, you just need to register for free and then you are able to use the tool.

Foam Golf Ball Dampers, Folger-Tech, 2020 or V-Slot Rail

Thank you, and please excuse my lack of attention, I hadn't recognised the file extension and didn't bother checking.

No problem! i know that Design Spark is yet to be known ^^.
Enjoy your day!

They are already provided => check .rsdoc
you can open them using design spark mechanical (free CAD tool from radiospares)

Hi, for what size tennis balls is this made?

A Official size Tennisball ranges between 2.57–2.70 inches (6.54–6.86 cm)


I took the official size to make those.
The radius is 33mm in order to expect a ball of about 66mm in diameter (6.6cm)
Even the 6.86 cm should fit in!

Smaller diameter will also fit but you might need to print the full version of it.

The original CAD files (.rsdoc) are provided, so if you need to adapt the model you should be able to!

Thanks. Final question!

It says supports not needed. In what orientation is this printed since I cannot image it beiing printed without supports...

The full one is to be printed as presented on thingiverse.
the "simple" version has to be printed on one of the flat side.
Your printer will be able to print t it this way.
The 8mm groove are 2mm over the void and most printers are able to print them with no support at all.

superrrr ...
very good idea thanks for share
