The parts list does not specify the lengths of the required screws. Many of them are not really critical, use whatever you have on hand, but at least 6 of them need to be M3-10's. Longer will extend to far and interfere with either the belt clips or the extruder mount, and shorter will be too short.
Really, really sweet. This makes me want to get my printer going even more ASAP! It also itches me to find out if its possible to vertically slice.. say gregs hinged voodoo and by that, besides make some good use of that term, hopefully also make a more or less drill-less Clonedel extruder.
I mean, three parts that one just bolts together...
If there is something that Clonedel/RepRap and the human civilisation to come needs, its:
A) Minimize the need for drilling these parts. Getting things to the "hand file, a trusty caliper and 'moar' bolts-stage" would be very awesome indeed, to
say the least.
B) Simplification the creation of molds. Would be optimum to basically print the mold shapes on a paper, trace/carbon copy that to a sheet of wood with the right thickness and touch it up until ones caliper says it's all good. Guess this would enable the use of any tough enough and s
mearable material you have at hand as a repstrap. Suppose ones chice of moldingmaterials would leaway as well.
Haven't slept for 30+h and english, not my native tounge. But Hey! ;) Keep up the Free and Fine work there! Cheers!
