2024-06-15 (Sa) GrinderCompassMKIII Assembling cages

It took several tries to print a copy of the cages. I misaligned the print bed once, the screen malfunctioned once, and I replaced the platen with a new magnetic version. The resulting prints were tricky to fit into one another as the clearances were so tight that I had to flex the edges to make them fit. Once joined, I laced a thin rubber band through the top and bottom holes and closed the ends with super glue.
Custom band making

The structure was more rigid than I wanted because the rubber band tension held the internal cage soundly in place. Before I could install a spinner, I dropped it on the floor and shattered the external frame. I saw some things I wanted to change before it broke.
