Project #2 Letterpress – Week 9

I finished the 2D ‘blue prints’. I’m hoping this will work. Check out the layout below.


Also, this past week I picked up the plexi glass for the base and top and began building and printing parts for my press.

Originally I was going to use Maya to create the 3D models. However, I found the software to be very difficult to use.  Eric had suggested an alternate program called 123D Design. Its so easy to use. I was able to set up several parts this week to print. I was successfully able to print the chase, the handle, lower track, and the wheels. See below.

I’m working on the upper tracks, hinge, and some of the printing blocks.
