Rostock Plywood metric by Culain Nov 12, 2012

Description

First things first:
I abandoned this project. While constructing this i ran into so many problems, that i just stoped building a rostock. I think it is still a very unique project and a great idea behind it, but at this time it's not ready for just screwing everything together and it works.
The fact that i'm too lazy to get anywhere deeper into this project made me abandon this. So feel free to use this "as is" and see it as "not finished".

I reconstructed the whole plywood plate, so that it is symetrical and stuff. metric system used
Constructed in Autodesk Inventor 2012.
PDF Image format: DIN A4; 1:3 scale
DIN A2; 1:1 scale
sry for the german names :S

Changelog:
- changed 6mm to 8mm Holes (thanks smolkd)
- added dxf file

No you are right! I went back and checked it, it is indeed 120. I used the middle of the board instead of the crosspoints. Noob mistake :)

i did this in Inventor 2012 and constructed it with 120°. If it doesnt have these well i dont know why.

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

heho...

i used your file for making my base and top plates, thanks a lot..

but... for setting up the rest... can you provide the diameter of where the holes on (i need the delte-smooth-rod-offest to be precise ....)

cheers

I love this. Its is much better than trying to do it via angles, etc whioch is soo hard to get perfectly accurate. However,
I am confused about the discussion RE the holes here. Unless I am missing something, those holes are supposed to be where the main bolts for the plastic motor housing and pulley mounts are attached at the top and bottom? The rods and belts go outside the edge of this plate?

I just have it laser cut and make two copy of it..
One for bottom, one for top
I guess 8 mm holes is for smooth rods
But here comes the problem,
When it attach upon a plastic motor housing, the pulley will be under the plate,
Belt will be blocked...
I think i have to cut three holes for belts to go through

it's fpr 6mm smooth rods with a distance of 60mm. But you can modify it like you want. Uploading the dxf and unscaled pdf aswell

smolkd on Nov 12, 2012 said:

For 6mm rods or 8mm? If not 8mm, do you have one for 8mm?

JelleAtProtospace on Nov 12, 2012 said:

could you post the unscaled version too?
pdf is fine, dxf (~R12) would be good too. I guess this is the smooth/round rods version, not the makerslide variant?

sorry, but it seems like i cant export dxf files with this version :( gonna look tomorrow again
