I have elected to laser cut necessary parts for the mechanics of this project due to the nature of the parts and finding affordable yet suitable pieces. In a previous post I mentioned a design I found hosted o with free licencing for hobbyists with access to a 3D printer. Alas the format of the file did not allow for ease of conversion to a format which allows me to have it laser cut.
Using solid works I have drawn the required parts and am sending them for cutting this afternoon. hopefully the turn around will be quick and I will be able to begin full assembly.
