3rd design set for the clutch bracket. As we ran out of ColorFabb HT filament it gave me a few more days to consider the design so Iíve revised some angles:







Mid print:



All 3 versions, note the middle one didnt finish printing:



Extra support structures



The first layer is a bit loose here due to gravity & the supports not quote hold it up - not an issue I'll trim those off as there's a lot more layers anyway.



Clearance for the fluid fill. You can see the layers don't look very smooth - that's by design as it makes the print stronger by having thicker layers. For a display piece we'd print with much finer layers that which would look a lot smoother. As this is a functional piece you can't see it doesn't matter.



Watch the print!
