Rookie Team Help Request - 3D Print Inquiry

Good Evening Fellow Mentors,

Our team has a 3D printer and I was wondering if anyone out there has a #D print model for a 2x1 aluminum extrusions cap? We want to cap off all of the ends of our 2x1 pieces. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I made these for us recently. They’re a tight fit but will go in with some encouragement from a mallet.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I am trying to get the kids to design some of those battery terminal ends that I see everyone have with our team number but things are hectic right now lol.

You should probably specify what wall thickness tubing you are using. 2x1" are the outside dimensions. The inside dimensions (i.e. where that cap will be going) will depend on how thick your tubing is. If you find a press-fit cap for 1/16" tubing and you’re using 1/8" tubing, you’re going to have a hard time getting it to fit.

Of course, the best solution would be to model the part yourself. As parts go, this shouldn’t be very hard. But at this point I would assume you don’t have that capability right now otherwise you would have done that instead of posting here.

I have seen the motor covers for the 775 motors but looking for end caps for the bag motors.:ahh: :ahh:

Not going to say there isn’t a model for one but its highly unlikely there is, reason being is that 775pros only have tabs to solder wires on to and teams use caps to protect these weak connections. Bag motors on the other hand come with wires already installed on the motor, I’m not sure how they’re mounted but its almost a guarantee that there is strain relief on the wires and are definitely much less susceptible to damage. If you’re looking for a way to keep the wires out of the way, as with all wire management, zip ties are your friend.
