This is a printable solenoid inspired by the Robotic Xylophone ( http://www.nerdkits.com/videos/robotic_xylophone/ ). I made this to learn a bit of Inventor.


I had a lot of trouble with the scale of this thing. Don't exactly know why so watch out when printing. Use the instructions in the xylophone article to wire it up and use the slug.

When exporting STLs out of Inventor you can click 'Options' and choose what units the model is in. You can also specify the resolution or complexity of the model.

Hope this helps :)

I see it now. Is there any way to control the overall scale of the 3d model in inventor before exporting?
