rocrail decoupler 3D model for printing yourself :)

Post by seveny » 24.02.2019, 19:00

Hi Rocrail-Fans,

we created some decoupler 3D models on our stummitreff BB stammtisch.
I attached the STL file with rocrail. Feel free to download and use.
Usage in two ways as shown in the picture.

This is for free and for print-yourself. No copyright :)

I printed mine on the image with yellow and green filament with a snapmaker.

Have fun,
Sven

Thanks for sharing, Sven!

Unfortunately, I am using Kadee-Coupler. Could you do an uncoupler for Kadee too? :)

Don't know these coupling. How does a kadee-decoupler look like?

Hi

@Tom - thanks for the link; yes the RIX product is around since a long time! I actually own one, but the magnets are a bit bulky. Currently, I am using the dual uncoupling stick #241 from Kadee.

@Sven - the Kadee couplers look like shown here. They are modeled after the couplers used by the trains in USA. They work well for me too, since the Swiss Meter-Gauge Railways that I model are also using center couplers. Kadees work well for shunting and they can be opened remotely and quite elegantly with a servo+magnet arrangement. As for manual uncoupling, I am still looking for the ultimate release tool. The one from Kadee, as mentioned in the note to Tom, works OK but it is not really straight forward to use. That's why I was wondering, but I must confess that up to now I lack a better idea than the stick...
