Hi;

I'm trying to print this but the tube holder and the hinge parts look really small on the plate and I have no idea on how much they should be scaled. (I tried it on Slic3r & Cura)

Can you please check them?

Thanks.

Hi Obarlas,

Thanks for the comment. I know what you are referring to. When I open some STLs in Simplify3D I get a message something like "These parts appear really tiny, do you want to enlarge them to normal size?" When I agree, the parts open at exactly the size they are supposed to be. I don't know why that happens because the parts were designed (Sketchup or Fusion360) to the correct dimensions. I don't use Slic3r or Cura, so I don't know the equivalent fix in those programs. This is a strange issue, but it must be common so somebody must know the answer. Let me know if you learn anything about this. I can supply the dimensions of the parts if you want to scale them manually.

Also, I have a new design of the leg bracket that works better on this rig. I will try to upload it today.

Thanks,
Chris

Hey Chris;

Thanks for the reply.

It would be great if you could give the real size dimensions. Waiting for the new design, too.

Thanks,
Omer B.

I updated the leg bracket model and added some dimensions to the description. I'm still trying to figure out how to make the stl lay flat in Fusion360. I will update if I figure that out.
