Spooky Castle Mouse Trap
by danvulanovic, published
I created this design to enter in the Instructables 3D Design Competition (http://www.instructables.com/contest/chrisanderson/).
It is as the title suggests, the ultimate spooky castle mouse trap.
It's quite a complicated setup and it's all already detailed on instructables, so best to look there: http://www.instructables.com/id/Making-a-Better-Mouse-Trap/
This is an absolute work in progress. I designed it for a MakerBot Replicator 2, but didn't have access to one (I've never used a 3D printer. I usually just drool over them) so it is a best guess. Tight fitting tolerences might be off (including gear assemblies). The other possible (probable?!) error would be the screw pitch used in the screw hoist. Sorry for any errors, I really tried to get it right.
I also tried my best to design this in a 3D extrusion, no build support, friendly manner.
That said, perhaps there's enough goodies in this design that it can be fixed/hacked/mashed to someone's content.
