|This is a Mini-Mendel ( thingiverse.com/thing:1745 ) where many parts have been shelled (hollowed out) to 1mm (some 1.5 or 2mm for better printability).|
This shall allow to use even less material in printing and apply the material where it counts for the mechanical structure (2-3 shell layers but very sparse infill).
Wherer apropriate I added supported and teardrops to make the shelled parts printable.
(Sadly the license must be GPL 2 as the Mini Mendel is GPL2 instead of a license apropriate to hardware-designs)
changes of VERSION 1.2:
* more parts shelled
* some bugfixes
* more supports to make the parts stronger and easier to print
* exported as STL
* exported as Solidworks
* exported to ACIS R19 (.sat)
* exported as STEP
The original files can be opened and exported in Alibre Design (trial version. Too many parts in assembly for the free version.)
