    If anyone has a dead one, you can send it to me and I can adapt the design.

    You are evil sometimes. You know that. You put a bug in there and it just gnaws at your brain. Its insidious sometimes.


    I just ordered this:



    I am hoping I can leverage all the scrap ABS from the 3D printer, melt it down to use it for injection molding.

    Now I gotta figure out where to put the darn thing. So not putting it down in the basement with dozens of pounds of gunpowder (reloading).

    Yea, sure, lets get even bigger $15k and huge. No. Not happening. And it uses the wrong plastic (polyproplyne wax I think). And yes, I actually had looked into finding a used one thinking it would be cheap and automated. Automated, yea. Cheap? No. With its design it couldn't ever be used as an injection molder. Its simply not designed for that.

    Oh wow. Look what i started. I'll admit that it was a very half cocked comment on my part. Nonetheless, I'm very interested in seeing your results with this. It's always seemed to me that DIY injection molding should be a more common thing. I haven't seen the unit you linked but I have seen completely DIY designs that use a harbor freight arbor press and some plumbing parts and a heater coil. It looks a lot like this device.

    I am wanting to use these for some frames I built however the frames are 1 inch square tubing. Is there anyway the wire slots can be modified so they are in line with the mounting tabs?

    Yes, that can happen.

    Need daylight hours after work for some outdoor stuff. But once its dark tonight (barring granddaughters and their homework), yes I can pop upstairs, load the mesh and rotate it for you.

    Ok, there is a new model on thingiverse (Same url: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1681035 ). Added a rotated version per rlemery's request.


    Let me know if that will work for you.
