    This is an awesome idea. I don't have one but I want one ! But what would you make with it?

    Maybe a nice stock...

    I've thought about that, and I always wanted to design my own furniture...custom to fit what my idea of a comfortable grip shape would be. Doing it this way is much more flexible than doing it in wood, as that would be a one off try.

    With this I can design it on my computer...print it...and then if it isnt right/need a tweak just alter the design on my PC andn print it again/rinse repeat til it is perfect. Cool huh.

    Hey! I got my 3d printer kit last week...!!
    I am currently carefully assembling it, bit by bit. Luckily there are a set of about 15 assembly videos now on YouTube. Ithink I'll be done this weekend and then I'll try a test print with ABS.

    I'll start a new thread with some pics then.

    Cool
    Hope you took pics from getting it out of the box and through the assembly, I can hardly wait to see what you have to say about it, I think it looks great on their site.

    This definitely looks interesting. Looking forward to hearing how it goes for you. This does make me think of the possibilities.

    Hey the weekend has been over and we're almost at the next one.
    Did you get it together?
    Or are you playing around with it and not getting any sleep?

    Finally got it built...however there was an issue that I could not get one of the end stop switches mounted due to a switch mount part being left out of the kit. Luckily they had released the part stl file, so I decided to print it myself.

    Pics below:
    #1 Almost done, still have to mount the heated print bed.
    #2 is testing the extruder after it had heated up enough to make the ABS melt.
    #3 shows the first three test prints of a calibration square. Its supposed to look a bit like a lincoln log cabin. The first two were messed up when the extruder tip dragged thru the still gooie ABS and dislodged it. The third one looked ok. More precise calibration of all the axises still needed I think.
    #4 Close up of square.
    # 5 This is the switch mounting part...not pretty but on the fourth try is was ok/usable.

    I have to get a few more pics next week, as summer school just started for me. I think the next item I'll try to make is some vise jaw pads ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3942 )
