First attempt to print RepWalker
The Shellmo project brought me back to my 3D printer which sits in the corner for 6 month without use. I dedusted it and started printing with a cheap 3 mm red ABS yesterday. By "chance" I printed the first baking tray with 0.5 mm layer height. Quite good enough for most parts but faster than with a smaller layer height. Only the frames with the integrated axis = Frame BL and Frame BR where printed with 0.25 mm layer height because of strength and smoothness of the axis.

Everything fits together perfect. I only had to re-drill the 3 mm holes - but this is normal and better than having to big holes. Sho - you did a great job!

Even if the snap in links are snapping in perfectly I have some doubt if this will last long?

From the point of view of the "manufacturer" it is stupid to divide the chassis into 8 separate parts with 12 screws and nuts. But this concept has two advantages. It is easy to print at home because of the minimum danger of warping of the smaller parts and the possibility to reprint parts if something went wrong during printing or in use. Additional this design makes it easy to change the individual part design without the need of reprinting everything. So I plan to use this hacked servo motors instead of Sho's geared motors because RepWalker should walk soon on my desk.
