Intro: Prototype 03 - Rotational Casting - Lasercut 3Dprinting

This was a school assignment /project /workshop.

Its still a Prototype (version 03) so I will not explain every step but I provide more than enough pictures to follow how I assembled it.

One of my design goals is to cut all laser parts into two sheets of 3mm MDF(600mm x 460mm) which are standard measurements of my local Fablab.

This was the workshop https://www.instructables.com/id/Rotation-moulding-chocolate-eggs/

The main issue now is that the belt loses its grip on the wheels

other problems that occur and need to be solved are

-Z axis wobbles

-belt needs to be smaller so that wheels could be smaller

-attachment of the wheels

-reinforcement of the corners

-M8 threaded rod --> M6

-avoid as much as possible glue

I will update this project when its fully function and when I am happy with everything, and then I will put the parts and files online. If you want them now send me a message

Step 1: Print and Laser Cut All Your Parts

Step 2: Bottom

stack two plates on each other

Step 3: Legs

Assemble legs

Step 4: Bearing Holders

Step 5: Outer Frame

Step 6: Inner Frame

Step 7: Close Up Rotating Parts

this part of the assembly isn't really clear because alot of thing needs to be changed or a temporarily

    wish I was on a school like this, where you can laser-cut your projects. Always had to break in my fathers toolshed, to build at least something... great project dude
