Terminal - Female - 2 Poles - FV169424


Recommended Posts

I can't seem to find a source for them. Everywhere I look on-line they are sold out or discontinued.


So I decided to make my own from 2 Lucas Quick Disconnect for CWB351 (https://www.thexmod.com/item_detail.asp?id=1282&t=Terminal_Female_Pack_of_10_CWB350_), some wire, RTV and two 3D printed shells I quickly designed to mimic the outside geometry as best I could. I'll let you know how they work out.







If anyone is interested in the .STL files I'll share them. They are glued together and the small M2 screw is removed once it's dry. I did beep it out and the screw was touching the wire. This was the first try, so next time I'll make sure it clears the wire and won't conduct. I'll test fit it in a holder tonight.

Did you print it the way way it is orientated in the stl file? There is quite a bit of detail in your design, but I couldn't get it to sit flat on the bed or get my slicer to create the correct support (maybe I should work harder on this?). I split the stl and printed the two parts lying on the bed.
When I tried to fit them round two connectors there was a gap (see attached picture) that I could not close, no matter how hard I squeezed. Maybe my connectors are a different diameter?
I don't suppose there is any chance you could send the original cad so that I could modify it?
You have obviously spent a lot of time getting the detail right.
Best Regards

The gap is intentional so it compresses the rubber against the printed parts to seal. I would put some RTV in the gap between the two where you add the small length of wire before putting the shells on. If you don't use the M2 screw, then I would clamp them together until the RTV dries. I don't think I have the CAD anymore, but I can probably easily recreate it when I have a free moment tomorrow. I have access to a HP jet fusion printer that prints Nylon18, so I haven't tried to print these with a FDM printer.
