By chance, do you have a video of this working? I would like to see if its what I am looking for.

I don't have a video of this exact one but here's a similar one that shows how it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnfxUq-xGas

Is there a problem with the Shaker_Top.STL file? I had someone try to print it 3 times. The raft prints OK but then the printer has problems making the actual part. They gave up and told me there might be something wrong with the file. The printer is an Altair³ Printspace 3D.

None of these prints need rafts. No problems with the model, I've printed several myself and a few other friends have printed several :) Tell your friend to check into his printer settings. Not sure what the problem could be.

They recalibrated the machine and they were able to print the Shaker_Top.STL file.

Awesome! Glad to hear it :)

Thank you for the quick reply. I think they printed the Shaker Bracket Other parts with rafts, too, after rotating the parts 90 degrees. They thought the part would tip over during printing if not rotated but maybe I should ask them to try printing those parts without adding a raft and rotating.

Hmm yeah that's strange. Some parts can definitely be rotated if need be and may require supports but I never use rafts. My prints always came out way too messy whenever I used rafts.

Thanks! It worked perfectly!

Awesome! You should post your make of it. I'd love to see it :)

Thanks! I think I'm going with your design.
