CAD models for all V-Hive sizes are made available via the Rat Rig Fusion 360 online viewer.

A single archive containing STL files for all printed parts can be found by clicking here. All files are provided in the correct orientation for printing on a standard FDM 3D printer. In general the printed parts are quite forgiving, but are also quite large. If you suffer from drafts and/or poor bed adhesion you may need to use brims/rafts for some parts to prevent warping.The following table shows the recommended print settings when printing any of the parts provided.
4 x 0.45mm
0.2 - 0.3 mm
The enclosing panels themselves are not supplied, the user is meant to source them locally. A 4mm thick polycarbonate sheet is suggested.DXF files for the panels can be downloaded here.
