YAK - Yet Another Kossel

yah, me too ;) I'm initially going to stick with Johann's dimensions, and I'm thinking of diagonal cross braces at the top and bottom and a diagonal wire with a small turnbuckle across each side. OpenBeam includes some nice 45 degree plates that should work well for the top and bottom. I need to pick up some hardware tomorrow or Friday, and hopefully I'll have the frame knocked up this weekend sometime.

I'm just about to the place where I'm ready to melt plastic and cut aluminum ;) I've managed to get the math worked out just about everywhere and the rendering in openscad looks pretty good.
I've also removed the individual files, it's too much of a pain keeping up with changes! Check github for the latest, and I'll try and keep a zipfile up to date here.
If you want to build in OpenSCAD, download all of the files and put them in one directory, then open and compile yak.scad. You might need a later version to get it to compile (I'm on 2012.07.18). Everything is mostly parameterized .. the stuff you want to change is all in yak_config.scad
I suspect I'll end up enhancing the openrail framework with various stiffeners ..
