Since my recent return to the forum(and long before that, actually), people have been asking me for my turret files. Since I left the forum a couple years back, the original designs have been lost; the flash drive somewhere in my house, never to be seen again. I started to feel bad about having to tell people that, so I spent all last night redesigning them from the ground up. These turrets are slightly smaller than the previous designs, so those that can produce them can do so at a lower cost than I ever could. I remember development lessons from the original revisions, so there shouldn't be any serious kinks with them.

The files were drawn in Autodesk Inventor 2013, and are in IPT format. I'm not going to include a bunch of different format this time, because that is really a pain. If you know how to operate a 3D printer or CNC mill, you should know how to convert files.

The turrets are designed to use the number -206 O-Ring, from The O-Ring Store. You can use whatever material you prefer, but if I remember correctly, I used Buna-N 70 rings. The turret mounting screw/bolt hole is large enough to fit a 1/4 bolt. The lug sprng hasn't been firgured out, so use whatever works.

Here's some pictures, and a Download link below.

For those of you who wist to produce to sell, you are welcome to do so, just remember to credit the designer :lol:

It's nice of you to do this, but could you load them in a slightly less obtuse format? .Dxf, .Dwg, .obj, .stl; or something that is otherwise industry-standard?

Cool! I've been looking for these files for a while.

It looks like the teeth are slanted so that there will be a gap between them on the inside, but not on the outside. Why is that?

Crater is a combination of a box and a dent in the ground. (Thanks Tangerle)

I'll stand on my head and gargle peanut butter for 70 dollars.

I'll do STL, since i can readily convert it to.

The slanted teeth on the lug is for a problem some of the first printed turrets I made, where the sharpness of the lug teeth would cause it to chip away the top layer.

STLs don't always open correctly in CAD software. I think a .stp would be preferable - it's the standard for 3D models. Inventor can export to that format quite easily. When I try to import STLs into SolidWorks, I end up with a weird triangle mesh that I can't do anything useful to. Inventor won't even import them.

Alternatively, you can just download Inventor View 2013 to make most CAD software instantly compatible with .ipt files. Not sure if it will work for SketchUp or Alibre, though. Definitely works with SolidWorks.

Sounds like they're not supposed to. The file describes *only* the geometry, so you wouldn't be able to use them well. If it's just a file for 3d printing though, having the .stl should be fine, and there are ways to convert the file to other formats that are more readily available than through Autodesk. I didn't know there was an Inventor viewer (free?) that could translate the files, that's good to know.

Though really, I've trained to do basically all raw-geometry work from all my Sketchup use, so that's not a problem for me. :D

Do you think you could show us what the final product looks like? I know these are just files, but I'm sure you had to test them out and make them.

Do a search for his threads, he used to sell them.

These look really cool, hope to use one soon.

Here are images of his old design. Might as well post them here if multiple people want to see them.
