2024-05-28 (Tu) GrinderCompassMKIII 3D model

At Grindfest, someone asked me what I needed to continue working on the implantable compass, and I replied, "A swift kick in the ass." A close friend sat behind me and delivered a soft kick to the region.

I want to utilize 3D printing as the primary building tool in this iteration. I plan to use hardware parts as I did with previous versions, like brass axles, neodymium magnets, and nylon machine screws.

The first model was going to be a sketch, but it was a simple part, so I modeled it immediately. The dimensions were all parameterized so I could change the number of vertical legs, the width and thickness of the bases, and the bolt-hole diameters.
