Bill of Materials[edit]

  1. No additional materials needed. Open source softwares, computer and RepRap is all you need.
    1. SCAD
    2. STL

Tools needed for fabrication of the OSAT[edit]

  1. MOST Delta RepRap or similar RepRap 3-D printer
  2. OpenSCAD
  3. Slicing Software, like Cura or Slic3r

Skills and Knowledge Necessary to Make the OSAT[edit]

  • No special skill(s) needed.

Technical Specifications and Assembly Instructions[edit]

No special instructions needed. Pretty straight-forward.

Common Problems and Solutions[edit]

  • Include common mistakes/problems to avoid in building your OSAT and how to overcome them

Cost savings[edit]

  • If your solution is not a low cost one then it is not really appropriate.

Typical handlebar grip costs anywhere between $3 - $8 Amazon. The 3D printed equivalent costs about 60 cents for a pair. So the cost basically reduced about 10 times the commercial equivalent.
