M8 Nut Cap by jspark May 15, 2013


I designed M8 Nut Cap for my compact size Reprap.
The nut caps make my Reprap looks more kids friendly. :-)
There are two types of nut cap. Close & Open type.
Open type nut cap has a 8.3 pi hole and the M8 thread bar can pass through the hole.
It shows nice fit on my UP printer.

What a great looking printer. Very clean, and just.......nice. Two questions: 1. what printer did you use to print your columns (and other parts), and 2. how long did it take to print those columns?

Thanks ChrisMagno! The columns consist of two pieces. I printed the columns on my UP printer, and layer thickness was 0.3mm. I can't remember the exact printing time, but it was not that much long.

Can you post the columns?

Yes I will! :)

This is a really beautiful printer! How does it look all hooked up.?

Thanks PeterOK! I'm still designing other parts. I will upload all files of this printer after the design work finished. ;)

This is a cool looking printer and like you say it should appeal to children. Very neat.

Thanks Wired1! It would be a good present to children. :)

Looks awesome!

Thanks! :)
