I chalenge you to BUILD this THING!

Designed in AutoCAD 2012.
Took about a week to design and this is also my first thing :)
like share & print... print print print!
I dont have a 3d printer of my own but hopefully i can make some things for you guys to print. you know.. like a team thing..
All the pieces are aligned & are still in an auto cad .dwg format. Injoy.


I'm not entirely sure what to put here, but the pieces have been aligned in there designated positions.
Each peice needs to printed once dont copy peices that look similir because there is slight variations.
Put supports as neccesary.
Sand where needed.

The sides are supposed to move in and out along a rail with a simple gear setup and a hand crank on the back. This is hasn't been tested yet.

Are you still there?

Update: STL's uploaded, omg so many!

s...so...it working?

first glance most of it would be doable, some parts would need cut in half firs as having a curve as a base is not a good start point unless you like removing a whole heap of support material

Yeah i had issues with that too, couldn't really decide what to do.

AutoCAD should have some way to export those parts to stl format . Can you upload them in that format? (Best to have one file for every part)

You can also look out for a FabLab or Hackerspace near you, those often have 3D printers you can use for a low cost. If you'd like to try printing it yourself, that is ;)

Anyway, thanks for your effort, I'd like to have one of those at home. With a drive for opening, a soundchip and hooked up to my door so it reacts when someone enters ^^

I'll get those up. thanks for the help :)
The closest 3d printer group is in victoria which is kinda close .. ish (2:30 hour drive)
I was thinking the same thing lasers and maybe some msg pellet guns with a motion sensor and a voice box.. oh the glory XD
