Bill of Materials

  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

  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

  • No special skill(s) needed.

Technical Specifications and Assembly Instructions

No special instructions needed. Pretty straight-forward.

Common Problems and Solutions

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

Cost savings

  • 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.
