Cotty's 3D printing adventures

I watched that video on inserting the threaded inserts. Thanks for sharing that. I can see that in some cases it probably isn’t worth the time, effort, or expense to add the inserts, though.

an you can just use the standard woodworking ones if you want even stronger hold…

question there still have the STL files ? and if so where can I get them ?

Since I’ve modeled all of them I still have all the models and STL files, which one do you have in mind?

I would point out that Lynne in a professional and as such should pay the appropriate amount for your modelling skills. Her business should be able to absorb the normal hourly euro rates for specialist 3d printing design. Generally speaking 300 euro for the starting concept, 100 an hour for revisions, working towards the the basic prototype that you may temporarily license for testing. Then you start to look at the financials of how many millions will be produced

or you draw your own.

The pen holder is neat could use it for the markers I have . . I mark parts to check on part being flat so mark X and Y of big parts . . Found out my bed the printer was sitting in WARPED and made things weird . . Sorry for the Delay in answer I am not on line a lot and get a few million e-mails at a time
