Step 1: Parts for the tube folding
PART 1 & 2: The easiest way is to make part 1 and 2 in one time and after milling cut in two parts (see drawing). The two parts will be nicely aligned. Dimensions x and y can be define by you and Z is dependent on the material thickness.
- L = length of the tube
- D = diameter of the tube
- X = min. 2 x the length of the hinges + Diameter
- Y = min. Length
PART 3: Small hinges with matching screws.
PART 4: PVC, thickness 1 millimeters.
Step 2: Assembly of the tube folding
The PVC sheet is at the front of part 2 and fixed with screws.
Part 1 and 2 are put together with hinges.
Step 3: Parts of the tube sealing
PART 5: The milling rectangle has the dimensions of part 8 and is 2 mm deep.
PART 6 (2x): Min. length of the tube x length of part 8 x thickness of the material.
PART 7 (2x): Min. length of the tube x min. width part 8 x 18 millimeters.
PART 8: Bar with some holes for the tubes. The holes = diameter tube.
PART 9 (2x): Hinges.
Step 4: Assembly of the tube sealing
Connect part 6 and 7 together, please refer to diagram.
Connect part 5 to 6 and 7 with a hinge.
