Prototyping Parts

To start things off, I got the CAD model exactly like how I wanted it, and then exported out all the STL & DXF files that I would need to start fabricating components.

Roughing out the CAD model

I printed parts on a CR-10 and  Monoprice Maker Ultimate (Ultimaker knockoff)

Here’s all the printed parts, besides the gears!
I’m going to try laser cutting a piece of acrylic so that it bends like fabric across the backside of the electronics enclosure. We’ll see how it goes…
Laser cutting the back back panel. This took 40 minutes to vector cut all those tiny slots!

Everything is starting to come together. The Etch A Sketch needs to be held a little tighter, but that will be fixed in the next round of changes.
