Gitea Scripts


These are small OpenSCAD scripts to help ensure that certain parts in a bigger design is going to print the way they should. For example, when you print with cavities which supposed to receive a hex-nut you can use the gaugeHexNutSize script to “calibrate” its height, inner and outer diameters - even the bottom and side wall thickness to make sure the nut is going to function the way it was intended.

Model List

Each model is linked to the OpenSCAD script. Before you print a large, elaborate model make sure critical parts are functional.

Hexnut Calibration

The hex-nut varies in size depending on:

  • Coarser threads have taller nuts
  • Plastic nuts come in all sizes
  • The slicer configuration alters dimensions
  • Printers, nozzles, filaments differ

Also change wall thickness on the side and on the bottom to handle the required torque.

Once resized just remove the bounding cube to use the tested hex-nut enclosure.

Prints in horizontal and vertical to ensure a close-enough match
