Christmas came early!
The postwoman just delivered a package from Shapeways!
Just what I wanted!
Getting to see your virtual 3D parts in physical form is a fantastic feeling! Highly recommended!
Now… Will everything fit inside…? Did I make any mistakes?
The parts fit incredibly well! There are some surface imperfections, like the lines you see in this picture. These “steps” are typical for the layering technique of 3D printers.
But a little wet&dry sanding, spray filler, even more sanding and plenty of elbow grease, it will look perfect.
I will use the slightly textured paint I used for my throttle handles when I built the ConTrollR.
BTW, the PCBs are in the mail as well. I’m also waiting for some special screws that I will use with the 3D printed parts. Maybe the postwoman rings twice…?
