The purpose of this thread is to suggest parts or creative ideas/solutions to fix issues pertaining to the Joe Community.
I've been wanting to replace parts on my toys for a looong time. It's why I bought a 3d printer. Problem is, in order to copy a part you need to have good measurements and if you don't have the part and you can't find measurements with a spare or broken piece then you have to guess. Sometimes this works out but a lot of times it's trial and error. I attached pics of my guesswork. I took a picture from the web of the part I wanted and used known measurements from the toy that I had in hand. However, if we don't have the toy to take measurements from then it's close to impossible. So, it would be nice if we could come together and post pics somewhere with measurements on them, front, back, sides etc. of the parts of interest. Millimeters would be best.
This thread is for people who are willing to make a donation for a designer to create a part for the community. As an example, I will donate $5.00 for a replica Triple T wheel to be designed. A designer will then post a message that he/she will take the task to reserve the bounty. Then the designer post's the design to the group to claim the prize. I hope this encourages faster development. i know some people are not able to design items, but donations will help seed this library. Further, this is an honor system. Fake bounties will result in banning. Thank you.
