A couple of days ago I got a mail with an attached film clip of the first printed piece of the skeleton.
The day after, “Dubbear” came to my place and I got it in my own hands so that I could look, bend, squeeze and feel the first printed part of my very first CAD-project!
We took a look at my CAD-files and “Dubbear” showed me that my parts wasn’t made as solids. I had simply misunderstood how to build the parts in a correct way!
Later on I did some googling and it turned out that it wouldn’t be as much work as I feared to fix the parts into solids.
Next on the to-do-list is to find the right tolerances for the pieces to fit properly without the need of any bonding agent, if possible!
I’m working with a test piece that has all kinds of fittings used on the parts and tweeking them to match “Dubbear’s” Mendel 90 printing tolerance.
So far I’ve found out that the Mendel 90 is more exact in the Z-axis than the Y- and X-axis, not too surprising!
Stay tuned for next update!
