That's nuts!

(Kidding. It's actually a good idea.)

Add this line of code to the beginning of ur code to make smoothness smoother. Change 500 to different value for different levels of smoothness. May want to add it into customizer.


$fn = 500;

Add this line of code b4 the code that makes the cylinder to make it smoother. Change the 500 to something else for different levels of smoothness, maybe add it onto the customizer.

Code: $fn = 500;

is this for SAE or metric nuts? I see the other comment stating they will work for m10 nuts but are these the only nuts it works for?

The default measurements in the STL file are SAE (for a 7/16" nut), but the SCAD file can be customized for anything you want. If you don't work in OpenSCAD, click the "Open in Customizer" link on the right and specify any nut size you want.

If anyone is wondering these fit M10 nuts

THANK YOU!!!!! All the designs with nuts don't always specify size or they are for simple tri spinners.

It's funny because I was just thinking about how using 3 bearings at weight was too much, and bolts would be so much more effective, and before I know it this pops up in my feed! Awesome work dude!
