Has anyone remixed this into a simple generator?

i cant print the lower tails in 100% dimension on 200x200mm print plate. how can i print this things? have you the two things in two files?

Ok, I put online the two tails separately.
I normally don't take care of this problem, because with Slic3r I can choose what I want to print, also if there are many objects in the image.
Regards and good works. (I would be happy to see the result!)

Thank you very much! I will share when it is finish.

Ok I so can not figure out the hardware part of this build the "Nr" has me stumped when it comes to metric I am use to M3, M4 and the length. Someone please help this Idiot (me) out.

Hi, sorry for the problem;
In my description (for example: nr. 2 - 100 x 8 - hexagonal head + 4/5 nuts) I mean:

  • number 2 (quantity) of 100 mm length bolt with 8 mm diameter (so an M8...)
    I hope it's clear now.

The general consensus on PLA is that it does not hold up very well with prolonged outdoor exposure as the heat from the sun can cause the pla to soften and deform.

Correct, if you live in an hot environment consider to use ABS instead. Unfortunately I will not have this problem, not for the next six-eight months at least…

Update of 3 October 2016:
Just to say that after a year, my windmill is still fully operational and has well passed the high summer temperatures (no deformation). The only maintenance that has been made was the bearings lubrication.
