Somewhere competitive if poss. Ta Lenny Reply Hessel says: October 22, 2007 at 5:52 pm Hello, Where can we obtain the CDR files to create our own parts ? Are the parts shown for the Fab@Home Model 1 machine ? Thanks, Hessel. Reply DeveloperZero says: October 23, 2007 at 6:04 pm You should sign up on Ponoko (http://www.ponoko.com/) and post the designs, so others can buy them pre-made. That way, it will accelerate adoption of the reprap project by making the basic parts easily available to everyone. -DZero Reply hoeken says: October 23, 2007 at 8:45 pm Hiya. Alex, These are parts for an alternative design that does not need to be printed. Its a bootstrap machine designed to get around the chicken and the egg problem associated with a machine made out of RP parts. Lenny, I’m not entirely sure… i know pololu and ponoko do lasercutting. Google around, or ask at the university. Someone will know =) Hessel, These parts are all located in subversion here: http://svn.reprap.org/trunk/reprap/mechanics/mcwire-cartesian-bot/ These are *not* the parts for a fab@home machine. This is a RepRap related project. DZero, I’ll definitely do that. However, we’re just not quite ready yet. The machine has yet to be fully tested, and I want to do that before I start promoting it to various people. In a couple week here when I get it up and running, then you bet I’ll put them up on Ponoko. Reply Hessel says: October 24, 2007 at 5:43 pm Thanks for the links! Are the CorelDraw files also available somewhere, just in case ? I couldn’t find 1/4″ acrylic plate but Lexan was easily obtainable in 1/4″ is Lexan also suited for the job ? Reply hoeken says: October 24, 2007 at 6:02 pm no problem. i’m not sure what format coreldraw uses, but DXF is a widespread CAD format, so it should be able to import it. i think lexan should work just fine, so long as you can cut it.
