Newbie needs a built

Post by georgejpl » Tue Jan 24, 2017 8:37 am

Hello all

I'm a newbie at this and need help. Willing to pay

My kids have a school project and they are using test tubes.
I need to build a test tube holder that has 35MM (millimeter) inner opening and 33MM depth circle shaped
outer dimensions need to be 50MM by 50MM

Can anyone assist?

If you are new, give Tinkercad a go. It was originally built for school kids so is pretty easy (and its free!) once you have taken a couple of their training modules. After no time you will be able to knock up what you want. All you will need are 2 cylinders, 1 for the 50 x 50 dimensions for the outside and then another that is 33mm diameter that you will put inside the first and make it a hole they have an align tool so you can get it perfectly centred.

Good Luck - you will be surprised how much more enjoyment you will get out of your printer when you are making things yourself. I started with Tinkercad and then moved onto Fusion 360 (also free) which I felt was a good transition path.
