Re: Large structural piece in Polycarbonate

Here is the assembled ball bucket next to the previous version. The part in question is one of the upper front sections in the new version.

You can view a picture of the device, the previous prototype (not the new version) at www.roboppics.com

Re: Any Interested in Manufacturing Parts?

It is 90% 3D printed on a Taz 6 using PolyMa...
