I have been looking at making a proton pack for years now. I have printed off blueprints multiple times, priced out resistors and knobs and everything else. I have even asked a few people on here about commission work. Due to lack of space, or time, money, or practical know-how, I just never pulled the trigger with beginning construction.
A buddy of mine (who is on here as well) took his family on a vacation for a month. When he was getting ready to leave, he had asked me if I wanted to borrow his 3d printer. I had already read the Count's thread on his 3d printing, and so I was more than excited to take it off his hands for the month. I downloaded everything that TGOACHER had on thingiverse and have quickly gone bananas. I am about a week in and have printed off 15 or 20 pieces. I still have a way to go, and it will probably take a whole month to get everything printed, but once it is done, I should be posting pictures regularly.
With it taking as long as it has, what would be the best way to cast it? The friend who lent me his printer will want one and I do not want to have to go through a whole other month to get it done. Also, I think I will be cutting out a piece of plywood as the motherboard. I do not like the idea of that part being printed off as 4 pieces (due to the printbed size.)
