Come on man! No printing plate? I guess I'll have to make my own.

Hello MacGyver, I'm not certain what you mean by printing plate or how it could be relevant in this instance. We printed ours as is and it worked just fine. Care to elaborate?

I'm interested in printing all the pieces in one print i.e. have all the parts in one stl file.

Hi MacGyver, thank you for clarifying what you meant by "printing plate". I just learned something new. Much appreciated.

I deliberately offer all the parts as separate files. Sometimes I provide multiple parts in one file, but I will not be doing so in this case. Here is why:

1.) Support - One of the pieces requires support material. The others do not. Support on our Tantillus is not as messy as support on the Replicator (which requires a raft). If I were to put multiple parts in one file then they would all have to have support ...and really who wants to clean up the support on that many parts.

2.) Build Volume - not all printer beds are the same dimensions. We printed some of the parts on a Tantillus which boasts a build volume of 10x10x10 but mine is a prototype and really can't build to that size. We printed some of the parts on a Replicator Dual which has a larger build volume but is still smaller than the Replicator 2 and Replicator 2x. In short, if I provided a "Build Plate" it would only be usable by a fraction of the folks here.

What you could do, is what I do in this situation. Download another piece of software that lets you group items on a "bed" and save it as an stl. For example, for the Tantillus printer I use the pro version of KISSlicer with configurations for the Tantillus printer. For the Replicator I use the free Makerware from http://Makerbot.comMakerbot.com.

I would recommend the Makerware. It allows you to add a part multiple times to the bed, has a grid, has settings to change the bed size for each of the Replicator printers, and lets you resave the new file as an .stl. Most importantly it is free. Here is the link: http://www.makerbot.com/makerware/http://www.makerbot.com/makerw...

Thanks for the information.
