Changing the picture -
I don't see a lot of point in flooding my gallery and people's inboxes with a zillion micro-steps of my wip on this thing, so I'm just replacing the previous image with this new one.
I rebuilt the three legs, and actually have them attached now. They're MUCH sturdier now - before they were so fragile that they snapped a few times and I had to glue them back together. This version has NO GLUE! All of the pieces interlock very snugly and tightly, so yay. I'd prefer not to do any permanent gluing at this point, in case I need to replace any pieces.
Anyway - Modeled in Autodesk Maya, with the printing restrictions in mind, which was a real pain to plan out and visualize how things would actually work and how I'd print them.
Everything was done without any raft support, so I had to make sure that each piece could be printed with a flat side somewhere. Most pieces snap together and hold themselves in place without any extra glue needed - that's why I'm waiting on the other two arms - they'd need glue.
Printed with White and Black ABS plastics on my Makerbot Replicator 3d printer. The big pieces were done with default layer height settings of .27mm, but the arms were a mix match - mostly .15mm.
