thats a Roomba 560? Have you ever printed the crown gear from the side brush motor for it? mine stripped and I completely failed to source a replacement but being unable to throw out things that might be fixed one day I kept it, I think it's this file

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2817590

it was too expensive to get one printed I was quoted 80chf when a new complete assembly was 30chf

Not had to print one but if you want one I can :) posted you’d be looking around 15 chf

I've tried to 3d print The Artichoke Lamp Shade several times on my Lulzbot Mini (I print the modular version because of build volume limitations). But I'm having adhesion issues after ~ 5 hrs in... Could your printers handle it?

I think so, what material are you using? odd that you're having issues so far into the print when you have a heated bed

I'm using PLA. As it's in my apartment I don't use anything stinky (e.g. ABS).

Yup, I use standard settings. From the top of my head, it's something like a ~200C head, 60C bed, and 150 um layers.

odd, I'd have thought that should have stuck tight

Dashed decent of you, but you set me off on an ebay hunt again and I found an original, you should offer them on ebay, they are rarer than unicorn sweat and a shame to bin a working motor for the sake of a single gear

BigBlue2, have you, or anyone else for that matter learnt enough MCAD themselves to print some decent 3D stuff?

As a beginner, how long and steep would the learning curve be?
(I appreciate this is all a bit "How long is a piece of string but, for example, a droid's head with a few apertures).


I've done a lot of CAD with various packages but it's all ECAD and not much MCAD.

Are there any cheap or free MCAD packages on which to have a go and which one can export files suitable for 3D printing?

Thanks!

Re: Want something 3d printed?
 
sorry no idea about mcad, most file types can be converted easily to 3d printer files, .obj and .stl are the most popular printer compatible file types.

I can't quite believe I'm having to say this, but

if you ask for a quote to print 10 widgets, you can't then send me 1/10th of the quote asking for just 1, just seriously, what planet are some people on?????

Just chucking an idea into the room, is there a tough but rubbery polymer-y filament?

there are flexible filaments, really depends what you need, for rubber type stuff you'd usually print a mold then use what ever you like after.

Flexible filaments, I would have to see a sample, do you have the software to create the 3d image?
