Here is my first concept of a "quick coupler" for my new Huina 1550 :D
This is for a stock Huina without mods !
For the moment, it is a manual coupler,
meaning you have to remove 1 bolt to detach the bucket.
You can make yourself a 3mm pin with a hole at the tip and use a clip.
Real quick coupler with spring now available : https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3732951
Doesn't require any mods on the Huina other than these printed parts here
As a bonus, it can give you more angle on the bucket if used in addition to my other mod here : https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3723661
You will need :
- 2x M3x45 bolts
- 2x M3x20 bolts
- 3x M3 nuts
If you search for a "SRC012 Slip Ring" on your favorite online electronics retailer website (found mine on Ali for about 10$ CAD), you can have infinite rotation of the turret !
The Huina even has 3 plastic posts that perfectly fit the slip ring without any cutting !
You only need 2x M2.5 plastic screws to fix it
All you have to do is remove the white plastic limiter inside the turret ring gear, cut the track motor wires and solder them back on corresponding wires on the slip ring top and bottom.
