Joly, what's the distance between rods on the ultimaker, and do you have an openscad file for this?

Thanks for this, it's a really great jig idea.

From memory its 40mm. Sorry, but I dont use openscad. I can upload a dxf if you want :)

The dxf would be great, thanks. I noticed that the rods appear to be different sizes, but I could work with that to generate the code and then just linear extrude it in Openscad. Thanks!

Nice simple design. I like it.

Thanks, its my first 'thing' :)
