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.
I’ll try since the OpenSCAD files are available
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?
The wall thickness is 3.175mm. Is there any reason why the pipes could not be printed in PLA?
why are the brass pipes used? Is it because they are very smooth and strong? could plastic be used?
Two stepper pulleys are needed, right?
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?
