I'm printing parts for a Rostock Delta printer and I've had to stop and admire how well these parts are designed. Boolean nut recesses so there's no need for nuts. Notice the tear drop hole for the Nema17 motor shaft so that if printed like this, there's no need for support. Instead of holes for attaching the motor there are 45 degree angled slots, once again negating the need for support, and accomodating variations in hole patterns. So well done!

I have all of the acrylic pieces from my old Anet A8 frame neatly wrapped and ready to send to someone who has the same problem as in the link. I am keeping the spool holder and repurposing the rest of the hardware. This is just the acrylic frame parts. Please boost. I'd much rather give it to someone that can use it than throw it away.

So this is my next project. It's the 48VDC rectifier cabinet I salvaged from the scrap heap at work. I pulled the transformers, SCRs and associated circuitry(very heavy) out of it and left it there. The front panel had old analog guages on it along with some breakers, switches and indicator light on it. Wish I'd taken a picture before I scrapped all that but I was in a hurry before they changed their mind about me taking it. I plan to transform this into a corexy 3D printer that will be heated.
