Is there a reason that a nylon washer isn't used...

Recommended Posts

When assembling the hot head for the UMO+, the instructions tell you to leave a small gap between the wood and the aluminum bracket that actually holds the extrusion head.  I assume this is to minimize heat touching the wooden parts.  Leaving the space seems to allow a small amount of wobble in the head.

Is there a reason not to use a thin nylon washer and tighten the thumb screws to solidify the head?

Thanks.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
