After printing the K block (see my previous post) with the RepStrap, I immediately went ahead attempting to print my first Mendel part. I ambitiously chose the pinch-wheel-bracket-NEMA17_604-bearing_1off.stl file, which is the green part of the following picture:
I’ve had varying amounts of success and failure. I have several aborted attempts. Since these were aborted, most of these are just the bottom part of the above piece:
So, the above one on the right is the closest I’ve come to a functional piece. Worst case, I’d drill through the top, sand off the rough parts, and make it work, but it’d feel better to print it correctly. Clearly I need to do some kind of configuration for this device that I haven’t done (I thought we’d calibrated it but I’ll try again).
