First Builders Post

I've been working on my repstrap for a while now and have posted a few pictures on the forums now and again but this is my first post on the blog. My aim is to build a repstrap almost completely from Lego that will be capable of making the parts for a darwin.














I improved the X axis today then did this constraint bracket print. This is my most successful yet as there is very little deformation of the part. I also added strips of thin smooth cardboard under and at the sides of the X axis to make motion smoother and reduce the 'looseness' or 'play' of the axis.












I've got lots more photos on my Flickr.
Next I need to build a Z axis and get my extruder working properly.

Damn! That's nice work there! :-D
 
I think lego is way cool as a Repstrap.

It has certainly got more parts than it had when I was a kid and had a huge box of it.

If only there had been much of the technical stuff about then.
