3D model description

A 3D printed needle used for cable knitting. It is made with OpenSCAD and customizable for various parameters like outside length, inside length, offsets and needle width. The needle tip is optimised for FDM printing without the need of support.

The files include cable needles in 3mm, 4mm and 5mm diameters. For the 4mm thickness, there is also a short and wide variant. The original OpenSCAD file is also included to allow you to create as many different needle variations as needed.

3D printing settings

NO support needed! I printed this in 0.15mm layer height, to get a somewhat smooth needle, but lower resolutions should also work. The print is a pretty fast print and should only take about 10 minutes.
