Designing of 3D printer platform


Recommended Posts

Posted · Designing of 3D printer platform

Hi guys

I am currently a student. We received a design project where we must design a 3D printing platform. Luckily, only the mechanical part of the design is necessary so no controlling or electrical behavior is necessary to design..

I would appreciate any help with a really simple design because simplicity is really a key concept in the design.

Regards

RB

    Forgive my ignorance, but how do i get the .STEP file extracted from the Github page to then be able to load to Designspark Mech and export to .stl?

    I cant see an obvious 'download' option and when i right click to 'save' file it only downloads a .html file?

    Or

    Does anyone have the saved .stl to share?

    thanks for help

    from the path you shared click on view next to the step file. Then click on raw and it will open the step file in your browser (or maybe ask to save the file depending on your browser).

    You can then save the file itselft. In Chrome use the main control menu and click save page as.

    Copying UM won't get you anywhere in the academic world as it is not allowed ;)

    Might be a Mac issue but downloading via RAW tab into browser and then saving gives me either:

    A 'web'.STEP

    or a .STEP.txt file

    neither seem to be valid .step files when i try to convert to .stl via the various online converter platforms?

    Must be user error but what am i doing wrong?
