Modern US tow cable eyes

Thanks Andreas. Here’s a better close up of the newer tow bars:

G’day Andreas, those look great! I’m converting a 1:16 kit into a SEP v3, would you mind helping me with CADing mine up?

Unfortunately not, because I have no personal experience in CAD.

I phrased that poorly - if you’re able to provide some dimensions, I’ll CAD it in 1:16 scale. Or would you be prepared to sell stl files if you have them.

Huh? You’re asking Andreas to sell STLs after you CAD the design? What? Greg, you’re saying some confusing stuff. :confused:??

It’s an either/or:
Can dimensions be provided for me to CAD myself?


Can the stls be sold to me so that i can print them for personal use?

OK, understood. However, 3 things to note:

  1. I designed the CAD after Andreas asked for it. I hold the license so Andreas’ copy is for personal use only.
  2. So the STL can be either directly purchased from me or purchased from: STL file 1/35 Heavy duty tow cable eye for M88A2 "Hercules" 🔌・3D printer design to download・Cults.
  3. As @Kenaicop pointed out, the M1A2 SEP v.3 cable end’s shape is completely different:

    M88A2’s cable eye would be inaccurate on SEP V3.

Could the circled portion not be made from the appropriate sized hex rod and a bit of tapered sprue?

It’s not just the circled part however. The top portion looks quite different as well.

Thanks for clearing that up for me, not sure how I got all that mixed up!
