No Prints Yet
Be the first to upload a Print for this Design!
This is the prototype printed version of the mechanical load frame I am building. It has been provided as a single assembly just so you can view the model. There is not a set of printable parts because I cannot yet recommend that anyone else build it as shown. I need to figure out how to better adhere steel to abs and how to add the steel plates without doing so much preparation work. The technique of gluing the metal sheets to printed parts is called composite sandwich.
