I was looking for a longer gimbal stick end on thingiverse for the FrSky X-Lite Pro but I didn't find one that had threads to make it screw onto the gimbal. I decided to create one in Fusion 360 that does have theads on it.
In Cura, You might have to adjust 'Outer wall inset' to bring the walls in toward the inner wall to make sure the size is correct to compensate for outer wall overextrusion. I usually set mine to 0.16 when I need the object to have precise dimensions. It all depends on your printer though and how accurate your printer is setup to print.
The picture is of the 27mm version. I have settled on 22mm being the best for me.
- Added 17mm and 22mm versions (previous version was 27mm)
- Tweaked the top design to be stronger
I recommend using PETG or something else that can withstand being in the heat. PLA will soften when the temperature gets to around 130F. You could print it at 103% and then anneal the PLA but I haven't tried that yet. With that said, I will use PLA and just keep spares around.
It is important to print this at 0.1 mm layer height to have enough precision for the threads to work.
No supports required.
