did you miss my version?
i use nema17 in my wirebender...

Hey : ) 
these are the first 3d models i am going to print and since i do not own a makerbot i uploaded them to shapeways. Shapeways asks during the upload if the measurements are in inches or mm. Can you help me? I guess it is in inches ...

thanks a lot,

tm

maybe a 3d printed planetary gear housing for the stepper motors?

The BOM has 3 steppers that cost $160 each and drivers that are $180 each, be nice to bring those costs down.

What are the applications of this? I probably wouldn't be able to put it to good use, but how would other people use it?

Not sure if you are asking about the plastic parts or the bender in general. If its the bender, people have mentioned wire skeletons of shapes (think shopping cart, wire basket, etc), to models of proteins, bending EL wire to make funky lights, dental bridge work, Calder-esc wire scupture, fractal antennas, puppetry, etc. etc. Let your imagination take you where it needs to go.
