Want to print out Emmett's awesome automatic Transmission? Frustrated because your printer isn't as awesomely calibrated as his? Try this FIRST!
UPDATE : Emmett has updated his OpenSCAD file, increasing the tolerance on the brake surrounds, so this test is probably less relevent now! :-)
Pretty straightforward - this is a quick hack of Emmett's most-excellent automatic transmission OpenSCAD script to provide a quick and dirty way of testing the brake levers funcitonality.
Download, and edit the "tol" variable - Emmett's default value is .25, I was able to get functioning brakes with Slic3r 0.9.5 at .5
Larger values provide more room, so experiment away, and when you have a working number, plug it into Emmett's original script and print away knowing you have one less thing to worry about.
Now to figure out how to make that shaft work without taking my printer apart.... ;-)
