|need design for holding circular and oval cylinders, like an adjustable collet [message #57425] Sun, 25 November 2012 15:16 UTC
Hello I'm a new member here, very experienced in cnc machining of metals and plastics, but I have a need for a new design out of plastic and thought that maybe with 3d printing its possible to make, as I know with regular cnc milling or turning it would be too complex and expensive.|
I believe 3d printing is the future and I'm sure some of you folks here are the brightest minds in the world, as the work examples I see on this site and others is truely amazing.
Need to hold onto round and oval hollow cylinders between 10mm - 60mm in outside diameter, length is between 2 inches and 10 inches.
The hollow cylinders are light weight and dentable like toothpaste tubes, but I don't want to squeeze them so hard that they dent.
Trying to figure out something easily adjustable to fit various size cylinders.
Thank you all very much
