A construction kit similar to Meccano® but fully customisable and printable. Choose which bit you want, how big, how big your bolts are, tweak and print. If your a rep-rapper use all your left over M3 cap screws and all thread to build something awesome.

You can print, flat plates, circle plates, L beams, angle beams and pulleys. I hope to add in time a bearing holder, and some self sizing gears.

Add your own hardware to finish off.

v 1.01 - Hole size is now free entry so you can enter the metric equivilent of an SAE size, or use 10mm bolts if you choose.


Customise and Print.

Thanks for the work and the customizer.
I make a 10 x 20 holes in L (2 holes) : http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1764800
I write a comment for this print on the page.

And I have a question for you.
Is it difficult to add a parameter for the number of side in the Customizer ?
I need for a project with my students, a plate with not 1 side like "L" but 2 sides like a "U" or 4 side like a ... (a pot ?).
I think also that 2, 3 or 4 sides make a plate stronger. Regards.

L plate can not be exported in openscad

Object isn't a valid 2-manifold! Modify your design. See http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/OpenSCAD_User_Manual/STL_Import_and_Export

It would be nice if hole diameters up to 10mm were possible.

The hole diameter is now free text. But why not use this as an excuse to download OpenSCAD, you could have always made a 10mm hole just by changing the hole size variable to 10. The customiser is a powerful feature, but being able to make simple changes in the original format is always way more powerful.
