Tools needed[edit | edit source]

  1. MOST Delta RepRap or similar RepRap 3-D printer

Skills and knowledge needed[edit | edit source]

  • Basic 3D printer knowledge.

Technical Specifications and Assembly Instructions[edit | edit source]

  1. Assemble the spring into the larger tube and then insert the smaller tube into the large tube making sure it slides freely but locks in with the small groove on the inside of the large tube. Make sure the two tubes slide freely then and rotate in the holders. Then Place the holders in the desired location Mark screw holes and then attach to the wall.
