What are "Plastic Parts Kits?" I have not seen them on the store?

OK, now I'm confused. I saw the extruder kit on RRRF and ordered that. I haven't seen the molded RP parts there yet. Do you have those too?

i took the extruder kit down because i was out of stock of machined parts.

i have a mold and plenty of casting plastic so i can still provide the cast parts themselves. i only have the cast parts for the extruder.

OK, so, what I should expect from my order is an extruder kit with the plastic parts rather than the machined parts, right? Sounds good.

What I was asking, though, was whether you were planning on selling the plastic parts for the cartesian robot as well. Something like what Ian has here: [bitsfrombytes.com]

I was lucky enough to get a set of molded parts! Excellent work! Got a blow-torch today to play with :-E

Thanks. I'll sit tight, then. Probably best if Ian doesn't have to mess with a bunch of one-off international orders.

Hi,

I was wondering if there had been any progress or changes in the status of all or parts of the extruder kit. I've got all the electronics working now on my Repstrap and will in short order be moving on to the extruder head. Unfortunately, it appears the extruder kit is out of stock and from what I've read, may remain so for quite a while. It looks like the screw, heating barrel, and the other metal parts could be made oneself (and I know they were up in the store for a while), but I'm kind of at a loss when it comes to what the plastic molded parts should look like. Do you have any more molded extruder parts left, Zach?

Thanks

well, i'm waiting on a guy to do moldings of the parts. i'll email him and find out what is up.

there is also the chance that i'll be able to skip that and have printed parts up in the shop in the next month or so. dont hold your breath winking smiley
