Rostock plywood file by tlalexander Sep 14, 2012


Apparently no one on the internet wanted to actually provide this file in a usable format for someone who might have a laser/router (even printing it onto large format paper would be helpful), so I figured that - again - I should save the internet with my file conversion-fu. This was taken from the Rostock Github plywood.scad file, converted to STL, then manually converted to a real part/drawing in solidworks (OpenSCAD didn't do anything when I tried to export as DXF).

Remember designers - even if you made something by hand, providing CAD files helps builders understand what they are making. :)

That's fine, I do it sometimes...

Thanks Nagy, the drawing was fine, I was calculating it wrong, I used a wrong centerline, noob mistake <:O).

Hi sasan, I checked that and it is 120° (according with the Deltacad protractor).

Make it! See Rostock description for info on thickness. I think he said 9mm plywood is suggested.

Just a quick note, I did a angle check and the angle comes to 126 instead of 120. is this deliberate?

Now all this needs is the holes for the heat bead mount and I can send this off to the local laser cutter shop.

thanks for doing this!

johann "zip tied" his frame together, since he cut these pieces by hand and didn't want to screw bolts into the edge of the plywood without nut traps.
So if you're going to go the effort to laser cut it you might as well put those holes in for the zip ties (or actually lasercut the nut traps so yo
u can use bolts like the ultimaker frame).

is this the top and the bottom? are the vertical pieces laser cuttable?

I had asked for this file a while ago and never got a response. So I *just* did exactly these steps so I could CNC a frame. Sorry I forgot to put it up on Thingiverse. Good to see it is there now.

Create STL from SCAD. Import STL into OpenSCAD and do this to get a dxf: http://rasterweb.net/raster/20...

Or just change the SCAD code slightly to export the dxf file directly from OpenSCAD. Which is the correct way to do it for flat objects, imho.

Thank you sooooo much!

You're welcome! :) I was so surprised this wasn't around!
