3D printed feeder adapter
I’ve planned to spend a week out (Sicily, my beloved!) next holidays. Since January I have an aquarium to take care of, and nobody to entrust it. So I decided to buy an automatic feeder. But I made a mistake: I didn’t buy the precise model that would fit the housing in my aquarium cover. Although the one I bought is better (has a timer and a display where to easily choose two feeding times) and cheaper, it is bigger than the other and doesn’t fit the housing.
I decided to design an adapter to be 3D printed by my Reprap Huxley.
I could use a sophisticated CAD software, but the simple shape suggested that I could seize the opportunity to train my OpenSCAD skills.
After getting the main dimensions of the housing, I made this model in openSCAD.
Then I exported in STL and sliced it using Slic3r 0.9.9.
Both the .scad source file and the STL model is available here on Thingiverse.
