My first post so please be gentle with me

 

Does anyone have a STL file for NEM pocket or couplings.I would like to convert some Mainline couplings.

                                                                                                       thanks

I’ve done a NEM coupling pocket adapter, I’ll throw it onto Thingiverse tonight and post the link to the STL file here :)

I’ve done a few versions but this is just to show the design works and works well at that.

Thanks that is what I wanted, I have just got to get the 3d printer back in action.

Looks like Thingiverse have taken down my freeware release of the NEM coupling, however if you wish to make your own I am happy to share with you the drawings I worked from, based from the CAD model I developed from a Hornby coupling and a Hornby NEM pocket. Whilst the file was taken down by DMCA, hopefully these drawings will help anyone wishing to draw up their own. 

 

The standards to model the pocket height/sizes are freely available through the MOROP website to anyone wishing to do so. All in German but I am sure that it's easy enough to work it all out and draw it up on your chosen CAD package.

An English version is available here:

Hope this helps anyone wishing to make their own :lol:
