  1. I knew a guy on IRC that built one of those, it looks like an actually not so hard project, if you can print all of it, and get the conduit. I'd be down to help. working on some revisions to my 3d printer this week, maybe by this weekend i can get some parts out. are we having any interim meet ups of the hackerspace before the 11th?

  2. Great.  We should coordinate what each of us is printing so there are no duplicates.

    I will aim to start with the 4 each Corner Blocks and 4 each Corner Locks. I'll post the requirements in the text of the main post and cross off what is still needed, printing wise.

  3. Dave, one thing that the library and I have a concern with a device like this is safety.  I proposed an acrylic/plexi-glass enclosure of some sort and they felt that would be suffice.
    Let me know if you need help with some of the non printed materials and I will pitch in.

  4. Sorry it took me a bit to respond.  Kid has been kinda fussy and I've gone back to work.

    I was able to print the 4 x Corner blocks, but for some reason the Temp+Time to Print was too much for my printer on that print and each of the corner blocks have some cracks in them.  I may try to reprint them each separately or see if I can kill the AC to the room.  I was also able to print the 4x Corner Block Locks without issue.
