MOST Delta filament as guide.JPG This page was part of an MTU course MSE4777 OA and MSE4777 OB/MSE5777/EE4777/EE5777: Open-source 3-D printing

Please leave comments using the discussion tab. The course runs in the Fall semester. It is not open edit.

Title of the device or system[edit]

Project developed by Mayank Moon 
This OSAT has been designed but not yet tested - use at own risk.
This OSAT has been prototyped.

You can help Appropedia by contributing to the next step in this OSAT's status.


  1. People spend hours in the scorching sun to make sure that they water there crop, and mostly done manually. By 3D printing the design mentioned in this page, it make sure that they can attach the water hose on the tube and crop can be watered.
