base on the original design by ErikJDurwoodII.

size : ?480 x 140 x 70 mm
weight : ?463g
50+ hours printing

For some reason, Mr. ErikJDurwoodll didn't have time to finish his awesome Makerlele. Therefore, the main goal of this project is try to combine these 2 parts together, and to make it works. The main part with tuner takes 6 hours for printing, and total duration is about 60 hours.

Enjoy and print your own 21" makerlele!

How do the worm gears fit into the holders? Do you print the gears first and then pause partway through the printing of the holders to put the gears in?

Comments deleted.

I have a stupid question - The little pieces shape like a T that fit into the main pegs...they seem to be in order to somehow lock the string? So, once they're in, they're in for good. No changing strings...yes? Or, are they just additional support. Line up the holes in the pegs so there's a hole all the way though the main peg and out the other side...then, just stick the string through like a usual guitar or uke tuner?

hello bigpaws,

It's for additional support, especially when you are using ABS but not PLA. the ABS 3d printed peg is not strong enough to against high tension without this T shape unit inside.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!!!

Ah....Ok. I printed in PLA, 80% infill. It feels quite solid. I've been filing down those Ts to make them go in. It's beautiful design. Great work. So, for PLA, I can use them or not, sounds like. I may as well just stick 'em in there. I'll be posting my print in the next couple of days. Just FYI, when using PLA, the worm gears will not under any circumstances go in without snapping the clip. I ended up deliberately snapping them off and gluing them back in, with some Sugru over the top for added security. Seems pretty secure now.

80%, I think it's too much. normally I will setup the infill value around 10-30%. In this case, 30% is ok but I suggest to infill with 40%, should be better and not so solid (more infill will take more long time, and easy bending).
