Bonjour, superbe idée néanmoins moi je n'arrive pas a rentrer les écrou dans leurs logements. En effet ils se retrouve serré. J'ai forcé est cassé la pièce.

Sorry that you had a problem with the angle grinder stand. The M4 nuts are a tight fit but shouldn't split the plastic. It could be a problem with the print, over extruding (making the fit tight) or bad layer adhesion. I've uploaded new .stls with slightly lager holes for the nuts, that should prevent the plastic cracking in any case. The files include "big m4" in the titles.

Merci a vous, je vais vous posté une photo de mon print

I see in the photos the split where the m4 nuts go. Are these prints of the .stls I uploaded with the bigger recesses for the m4 nuts? I know it is not an elegant solution but a little superglue (after you've put the nuts in place) would hold the print together and let you use it? Alternatively don't use the captive nut recesses, Just put a washer over the top and use longer screws.

Je dois avoir un soucis tout de même, je pense que mon extrudeur est dérèglé. Ce n'est pas normal que les valeurs imprimé ne corresponde pas au STL

hi tig29, my angle grinder is 60mm on the digital caliper yet your ring is 66mm mm. when you tie it with a screw will it tighten this or will i need to edit the file and how do i edit the file for 60mm? thanks

In order to to generate a holder for your grinder you'd just need to change 2 lines in the scad. 1) base=false; and 2) grinderrad=60/2;
If you're not familiar with OpenSCAD then I suggest that you check it out because in my view it's great for designing in 3D. In case you're completely new to it I've uploaded an .stl with a 60mm diameter, so you can just download and print that to get you going.

I agree, an angle grinder is a very versatile tool. I'm glad you like the stand and hope you find it useful.

I been looking for this long timed ago!!!! many thanks!! . . . . the grinder one: of the best friends of a maker!!!
