a snapshot of an actual Work In Progress
I'm currently reverse-engineering the Graber i3 from S Graber
based on its DXF files.
the target is to be sure nothing is missing for the day I will start the real printer.
I Used the "group" function from the Draft Workbench to use the DXF, then convert the wire to Sketches.
each single part as a "MainP" worksheet with parameter.
then a made some sub assembly with assembly 2, and a larger one with all the parts.
the target is to have all the part fully tunable according the technology use to cut them. normally it's a laser cut process, but as I have no access to laser cut, I may use a "classical" CNC so I need to adapt design to the CNC.
for the moment nothing is changed from the GraberI3 version.
I need to finalize all the detail.
then I will start to constraint correctly all the sketches and make the appropriate changes.
by the way constraints in the assembly are not all perfect, but it does the job.
other point, the "edit" function works quite well, but it looks better to change parts from the sub assembly outside the big one.
Git Repo if someone wants the files https://github.com/Nemesis81/GraberI3_Freecad.git
edit : in the git repo link or broken to edit part, as the location looks to be absolute. by the way anyone knows how to update it?
