Well, the original OpenSCAD file is my own doing, and you can get that here
, slightly enhanced from the previously printed part. Here's what it looks like now:
I can generate an STL file from that - it's an export option in OpenSCAD - but I think my associate did some postprocessing to produce a gcode file. The experts here will surely be able to fill in the missing details, but I could ask my associate for some more details of the process.
I was told that some of the dimensions could be adjusted to make it easier to print, but I don't think I made all the adjustments yet, just some that were fairly easy and should help the halves of the cartridge fit together without the use of glue or stickers.
Apparently, not having any 0.5mm walls, replacing them where possible with 1mm, would be a big help for some printers.
Now . . . What's the loudest colour I can find
I think the loud colours suit the 1980s retro mood very well.
P.S. This thread seems to hate my browser. I guess it doesn't like all the pictures.
P.P.S. Since writing the above, I've changed the side walls to be 2mm, which should help a bit with 3D printing.
