250µm optical fiber Y junction

250µm optical fiber Y junction

Daniel Brastaviceanu
Like the title says, we use 250µm diameter optical fibers for our super sensitive force and displacement sensors. Basically, we send in light and measure the amount of light that comes back, then by calibrating the sensor we can measure the force, displacement, bend, flex, twist, etc, in different applications. I modeled this Y junction to be used in most of our setups, we 3D print this on a B9Creator so that's why this model has a base layer of support but it's also printable without support with some good polymers that won't warp and detatch from the build table. To avoid errors from *too small features in SketchUp, the model is actually scaled to 10, you just need to scale it back to 0,1 in the 3D printer Layout. #250µm #3D_printable #B9Creator #diameter #fiber #optical #optics #Sensorica #Y_junction
