How thick should the platform be?
Here’s what it looks like printed and taped together.
The DXF could be opened in LibreCAD and saved as an image. I chopped and scaled the image in photoshop in tiles for 8.5 x 11 inch paper.
From the print out, it looks way too small. Would someone please tell me what the scale is? The total width and total height would help too.
Thanks, I got Autodesk Design Review 2013 working and it has the right options.
Does this look like approximately the correct size of the base?
I tried LibreCad and SketchUp 8. Neither were able to do it. Autocad has a program called “Autodesk Design Review” that should work but the installer fails to connect to the internet.
Maybe someone can post another alternative or a PDF file on 8.5×11 inch paper with black and white lines tiled across the pages.
Edit: I found a full installer for Design Review and am trying it out.August 5, 2013 at 02:50 in reply to: SAE equivalent parts / adapters #817
I’ll try since the OpenSCAD files are availableAugust 4, 2013 at 03:12 in reply to: Printing pipes #812
Here’s a customizable pipe model. The pieces can be pressed together and will maintain inner/outer diameter. They could probably be made water-tight by melting filament on the joints.

The same question also applies to the m8 40mm bolts
And the m8 60mm bolt

Wow, how did you make those angrychisel?July 24, 2013 at 18:05 in reply to: Printing pipes #705
The wall thickness is 3.175mm. Is there any reason why the pipes could not be printed in PLA?July 23, 2013 at 18:59 in reply to: Printing pipes #690
why are the brass pipes used? Is it because they are very smooth and strong? could plastic be used?July 22, 2013 at 03:04 in reply to: Will these parts work? #672
I ordered 2x 20 tooth GT2 pulleys. Couldn’t find the 16 tooth version.
This is the 1m GT2 belt:
It would be nice if kits came with a RUMBA-style electronics board.

Two stepper pulleys are needed, right?July 20, 2013 at 22:49 in reply to: Building a morgan! #667
I use T2.5, and the smallest pulley I could get, but GT2 would work fine as well. The actual size is not critical, but get the smallest you can get to optimise the drive ratio.
Everything gets set up in initial calibration.
How long does the T2.5 / GT2 belt length need to be?
