Re: Mini tripod for 3D printing

James, many thanks for the feedback. I can see how the legs and central boss could have one side flat so no support material needed. Do you think the external thread would build properly?  The cap could have a perfectly flat top for building upside down but the thread may still be the problem.

The Cube and UP! use build plastic as support but with tiny attachment points.  Does the Rapman have that facility?

Do you think it would be worthwhile collating what comes in to produce guidance notes for students on modelling for the capabilities of the different machines and, advice for schools purchasing 3D printers?  The problem with the latter is we don;t have access to all the technologies and the rate new printers are coming out.
