Introduction: 3D Printer Threaded Funnel

Picture of 3D Printer Threaded Funnel

Hello, this is my first instructable, I hope you like it.

A few months ago I built a 3D printer and since then I started to design pieces useful for me and I think it may be also useful for anyone.

The design that I show you is a threaded funnel that is placed in the deposit of a rototiller. This makes it easier to fill the tank with gasoline without spill any drop.

Then I am going to show you how I did it.

Step 1: Design

To design the funnel I used the program Solidworks 2015.First I took the measurements of the thread to fit in the tank. Then I gave the funnel measures that I found appropriate.

Step 2: Repetier Host

I saved the file with the STL extension and I opened it with the program "Repeiter Host".

Then I set the parameters as shown in the picture.

Here you are the STL file to print it directly.

Step 3: Printing

The impression lasts about 7 hours. It can be done in much less time if you do not want so much quality .

In the pictures and videos you can see how the impression is made .

Step 4: Finished Project

After 7 hours, the funnel is finished .

It fits perfectly into the fuel tank .

Looking forward to your comments and questions.

Nice idea! If I may suggest what might be an improvement: you could make some grooves or channels on the outside for the escaping air, so the liquid would flow fast.

Good idea, but as the mouth is very broad, is not necessary. Thank you!
