The STL (Standard Tessellation Language or STereoLithography) file format is the most commonly used format for 3D printing. When used with a 3D slicer, it allows a computer to communicate with the 3D printer hardware, printing a model.
Since its humble beginnings, many CAD software packages have adopted and supported the STL file format. It is a 3D printing process and corresponding file type created by Chuck Hull at 3D Systems in the 1980s. It is for rapid prototyping, 3D printing, and computer-aided manufacturing.

We invite all the STL Creators and artists to share some of your creations and help us build an excellent Free STL library.
In exchange, we will put your info, website, and social media so people can see and buy other creations from you. No file is too small or complicated (they can be parts, mods, props, or whatever you want to share).
Please email us at email@example.com with the subject (STL Creator Contribution) with your contact information, such as your social media (IG, TikTok, Youtube, etc.). To receive your well-deserved recognition from us & the community.

3D Printed Sanding Tools STL Description
These are tools designed for fixing sandpaper, which is suitable for manual grinding and machine grinding.
By rotating the inner cylinder with a slot with an 8 mm hex key, you start tensioning and clamping the sandpaper. The end of the sandpaper strip is inserted into the slot of the inner cylinder.
The beginning of the tape is attached in the slot on the base. If the grit index is high and your sandpaper is paper-based, it will be too thin. Then it makes sense to cut it off longer.
For better fastening, fold it in half in those areas where the tape is attached in the slots. Two models are for manual grinding.
In the form of a drop with a width of 40 mm, for fine grinding and for grinding in hard-to-reach places. In the form of a bar with a width of 80 mm, grinding large open surfaces.
If desired, the width of the models can be easily changed by simply pulling on the Z axis, in any 3D editor. Machine grinding can be done with a drill and with the help of an angle grinder.
The grinding drum for the drill is available in two versions. One version with a diameter of 40mm and the other one with 70mm. To assemble the grinding drum for the drill, you will need a hex head bolt M6 of 50mm and the M6 nut for fixing the bolt.
The length of the bolt can be chosen differently, depending on your preferences. To assemble the grinding drum for the angle grinder, you will only need the M14 nut.
Perhaps your angle grinder has a different thread. Then, you will need to modify a model or write to me.
