This is a derivate of Jonas Kuehling's excellent "Greg's Wade reloaded - Guidler, Tilt Screws, Fishbone Gears"


The .scad file is a "quick and dirty" hack, sorry abount that. The .stl file was rendered for the reprap-fab.org heaterbarrel and a layer_thickness of 0.333mm or 0.25mm. You can change it easily in the .scad file, but you need the module “jonaskuehling_default.scad” and “configuration.scad” from the original page at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:18379. I will do it for you if you want.

The Extruder is designed for 9:47 gears. "Normal" gears don't fit!
The gears are from HUGO_improved v1.3 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:22586, an excellent PrintrBot derivate.

Are there any strength difficulties in printing this in PLA?

Thanks for this! I've had a similar problem with the others. Comment though - Slic3r 0.8.4 tells me that the *_0.25.stl file is not manifest near edge 1717.000-1716.000. I'm not sure how to fix that, and because of the warning, I didn't try to print it. Other objects tend not to print very well when that error pops up. Anything you can do to fix the .stl?

Thanks again!

FYI I pretty much always pull all STLs into MeshLab then hit File/Export mesh. It fixes up most non-manifest errors and also usually reduces the file size by a TON (like 25% of original size). It's a reasonable step to take and the software is free. It's actually all I use MeshLab for though I really should learn more about it.

Both .stl files are fixed now. Sorry about that
