Mad max called and said he wanted something that might help him kill rats.

Some assembly required.

This 1 print Thing will fit on a 6" x 6" bed and can be proportionally scaled to a larger bed.

I suggest that you use acetone to glue the parts together. You may need to use a spring, or perhaps some small rubber bands during construction.

Please feel free to improve upon the design.

is it possible to have individual stl so we could scale or even use other materials of different parts ?

How do you assambly it? Didnt print it yet due i didnt order my printer yet, but i am curious.

I've printed two of these so far, I've put a video of one of them up on my Roboplastics Youtube Channel.

FYI, looks like all of the parts aren't set on the same level. You have to print at 0.35 layer height for it all to rest on the build platform on the first pass. Anything smaller will print the arrows first on the first layer, then the rest of parts on the 2nd layer. Sadly, I don't know how to split STL's so that i could correct this.

Printing now, look forward to trying this out!

Any chance of posting a DXF file equivalent of the outlines of the design for us poor laser cutter folks to play with?  thx

I'll see what I can do for you.  I'm currently waist deep in building a new printrbot plus and its kicking my arse.

I just love revisions with no instructions!!

Assembly instructions, or a completed picture to use for reference?

I'm not done printing mine yet, but it will be complete soon.

Once I finalize the piece, I will update the Thing with assembly instructions and the BOM for screws, bolts, springs, and rubber bands.
