Hi, i'll would print it for IKEA Linmanonn desk (height : 34mm) can u do it? or give the original Fusion 360 files plz?

Thanks just printed and fitted this.
I am new to 3d printing so had to learn how to split the parts in the slicer.
So you taught me something to.

Why the OP can't just put it as two separate files is beyond me.
Expecting people to split it is lazy.
Just upload them as they were created!

Which one did you use in the picture?

To the author : please don't assume people have the same functions and features as you when you are sharing your designs.As you can see in the comments, lots of people are using Cura and it doesn't provide the split tool.

For those who use Cura (or those who can't find the required tool in their slicer) : you will need another program to split the two parts. I used Meshmixer. Load the stl file, click on select and then click anywhere on the object. A menu appeared. Browse to Modify > Expand to connected. Now the chosen part (body or cap) should be entirely orange. Then, in the same window, Browse to Edit > Separate. A new window appears showing the two separate selections. Click on one of the two parts in that window and Browse to File > Export and export to STL format. Do the same for the other part and you have two sepearte stl files.

not seeing a split setting in cura, could you please include the files pre-split?

Hey thanks for sharing!

Ok at a loss here. I'm using Cura 2.7 and can't for the life of me find an option to split object. If I right click the model I have an option to ungroup models, but its greyed out and I'm assuming due to this being one model. They only other option I've come to is Mesh Fixes: Remove Mesh Intersection. Is that what I need to use here or am I missing something else. Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure how to do this in Cura sorry. What size are you trying to split?

I was messing with the 2" model. In the end I put it to rest for now while I try to find an answer. So far it looks like this feature was removed from 2.x to be reimplemented later

Thanks for sharing all your work.
I'd like to get separate files (tube and cover0. I'm using S3D. Is there any spit option in S3D ?

Its under "Mesh->Separate Connected Surfaces" in S3D.

Check out the other comments. Yes you can split them up.

"I have updated all the files so that the cover is now one object. When you use split in Cura you should just get the split of the gommet and the cover now :) Let me know if you run into any issues."

Nice LACK Grommets- it would be sweet to make a bottom flange for this as well and have it assemble like this filament guide. I used it on mine and the filament guide fits well and finishes both sides. If I were skilled enough with drafting I would whip one up!

I like that idea. I'll have to have a think :)

Hi. Would you please make separate files for the covers too? I printed the 2" cylinder first (using split object function in Cura). The need had changed later on and I now need to also print the 2" cover. Now I can't simply use Cura's split function anymore because Cura not only splits the cover and the cylinder, Cura will also separate out the teeth from the cover, making the cover a flat sheet.


Use Slic3r it will split them or let me know what size and I will split them for you.

How does Slic3r split them? I just get a single object that's fused when I print it

Never mind sometimes knowing it's possible is 99% of the way. Select the object and select split. :)

Right click the file inside slic3r and choose the split option. Or email me and I'll send you the split files if needed. Johnegrissom@gmail.com

I have updated all the files so that the cover is now one object. When you use split in Cura you should just get the split of the gommet and the cover now :) Let me know if you run into any issues.

That's exactly what I was hoping for! Thank you so much!!!
