Sketchbot 3d Prototype - Pieces Finally Arrive!
The Sketchbot 3d printed pieces FINALLY arrived this afternoon. (mental note - USPS "Priority" is an oxymoron)
I am extremely happy with the quality and detail of these! They do require some additional cleanup, and after about an hour of wet sanding to remove the very slight remnants of layering and micro-scratches, they are rock smooth.
The pieces all have a snug fit, though, the more I've been playing around with it, the looser the connections are becoming.
I won't be able to generate molds from this until sometime next week, so please marvel at these photos to tide you over until the next phase begins. :)
