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.



The RepRap motto is "wealth without money" - for this assignment you are to create wealth by making an open source design that has value to you. It must be 3D printable on your MOST Delta and cost less than a commercial equivalent (if such a thing exists).

Assignment

  1. Design something of "high value" that you can 3D print on your MOST Delta
  2. Make sure someone else has not already done it - search http://www.yeggi.com/ and https://www.yobi3d.com
  3. Design 3D printable components with ONLY OS CAD packages (e.g. OpenSCAD, FreeCAD, or Blender)
  4. Upload your design under an OS license to https://www.myminifactory.com/ or https://libre3d.com/ - include: Source files, STLs, a picture, and a brief description including costs and $ savings.
  5. Add picture, link to your MyMiniFactory or Libre3D page with name, commercial equivalent link+cost, and economic savings to table below (see example).
  6. Print component and bring to class (online students - post a link to a short Youtube video)

Grading

  • 30% Print quality
  • 20% Documentation
  • 50% Design (design for printing, aesthetics and function)

Automatic reductions: -50% no source or the use of non-OS software -10% per day for late

No image yet [(No link yet) Nordic ski binding jig (self-clamping)] [12], Not sold commercially, but you can find one used for $45-60 if you're lucky. Expect the print to cost __ at __% infill. That gives a cost savings of __ over buying an old used jig, and you save the time of hunting it down on random buy/sell pages.

Using a jig to mount your bindings is extremely helpful for proper hole placement. Without the use of a jig, it takes much longer to correctly place the mounting holes. The jig sets perfect alignment every time and greatly speeds up the process. There is currently one OS binding jig, and it does not have a clamping mechanism and does not align itself to the ski. See here. The new design both clamps and aligns. To properly use, print the base plate (two separate pieces that connect) then print two clamps and connect them to the base plate's extruded tabs. See the myminifactory link for more details.
