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.

<p>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?</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>Can you post the columns?</p>

<p>Yes I will! :)</p>

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

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

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

<p>Thanks Wired1! It would be a good present to children. :)</p>

<p>Looks awesome!</p>

<p>Thanks! :)</p>
