MK8 Extruder Arm

MK8 Extruder Arm 3d printed Mechanical parts Maker/DIY
After having arms slowly deflect up on me for my upgrade on my Replicator 2 I began to look for a more permanent solution. There are several different types of aluminum and ABS models out there. I took my MK8 design, added the pin and tab found on Whpthomas's version, and made a few modifications to get it printable at Shapeways in stainless steel. I know there were possible tolerance issues considering Shapeways gives a very large tolerance. The part I received measured very close (within .15mm), If you have this made, bear in mind the possible tolerance issue.

This model has been derived from these models: Whosawhatsis' model: Emmetts' model: My model: Whpthomas's model: The current file and additional files to make it work are located on Thingiverse as item 86162.
