Thanks so much for sharing this!

Printed great!

Any chance of a m8 version?

This does look really good, but seems like it has a lot more detail to the curves than you will ever see. Have you tried exporting this at different resolution settings? I took a look at 001_Clamp.stl file & the facets on your curves are from .14mm to .2mm. Look at a metric scale & see if you could really see that small a difference. In openscad, I generally keep my facets down to .7mm to 1mm & that still maybe over kill. Another advantage of having less detail is your slicer does not have to look through as much data to slice the object. I do like this design & may print one to see how it looks.

I always save my stl files at the highest resolution I can. When these are printed, the edge rounds,do not show in the prints, but they do eliminate most, if not all, of the compression overhang that occurs on the first and last layers printed, thus eliminating cleanup of those edges. These files slice quickly, print great and require no cleanup. Designspark creates very clean geometry, so when sliced, I never get slicer errors, so the process goes quickly.

looks realy good

How did you get so smooth surface?

I used the free program, Designspark Mechanical to model this. all edges have a .5mm round on them plus the program has a high resolution stl exporter option. The program can be downloaded here ... http://www.rs-online.com/designspark/electronics/eng/page/mechanical. It is a very simple to use program with many tutorial videos on youtube

These work very well. I printed extra knobs for use in other project too.
