Great Greta idea, a few weeks ago we were talking about a RPshop that
was using university students to reduce costs on producing SLA parts !
cheap ones !, but using little kids can be even cheaper !!! dont you
think ?

just kidding.... sorry I just could not resist it for friday humor..

  Hi List,

  We need to demo our RP equipment to some school kids - Has anyone got a
file (stl, iges, 3ds, dxf, ug) of a simple assembly of moving parts (gears,
levers, knobs, snap fit ball joints? etc) that can be built on a combination
SLA, SLS & FDM so that the kids can clean up the parts and then clip them
into a finished part. It does not need to be larger than a couple of

  Nothing too complex (but visually impressive) please and maybe 5-10
different parts (including housing assembly)

  Many thanks in advance
