Behold! My creation, this device is intended to help you make copies of small objects in wax, clay, or other soft materials. I came up with it out of my age old brain, lol, ancient wisdom (or the lack thereof) going zany again! So someone told me about the Router Duplicator which is a big huge version of this little plastic thing. He showed me some youtube video s of the things making guitar bodies and such. But the one shown below is for smaller stuff and soft materials. Anyway, behold!

That's the third print almost ready to test for mechanical motion and stability. It's parameterized in OpenSCAD and I'll upload the DupliGator.scad file soon enough on YouMagine. This third one I optimized for a quick print and I think I made the tool and rod parts too spindly and small. Maybe a little bigger will work best. Also I have a lot of tweaking to do.

Les get to it!

    Here it is in printed form. As expected the tool is a bit wobbly but it's functional and will probably work OK once I beef it up and reduce tolerances a bit.

    Les be friends!

    Could you explain a little bit how it works?

    I mostly see a handlebar with 2 gears, and I don't see how this would help in making something in clay or a wax? .. Maybe this is my lack of ancient knowledge talking! ;)
