Snappy v3.0 released.

I just released Snappy v3 as a working design, and added a Snappy 3 page to the Reprap Wiki. I patterned the page on the one for the original Snappy.


The main improvements of the Snappy 3 over the old Snappy 1.1 are:

- Replaced the old metal lifter rod vitamins with printed equivalents.
- Bed leveling is now adjustable.
- Z axis homing is now towards Z-min.
- The herringbone gears and racks should be smoother and cause less print artifacting.
- The extrusion bridge is now lighter.
- Tightening the extrusion idler is now done with a printed adjustment screw.

That looks pretty neat in the assembly manual.

But how long does it take to print all the parts on a 200x200x200 machine at 50-60mm/s ?

Wasnt there a calibration check print too in (v1 or 2)? So one would be sure that the parts would actually snap together.

So far I never been able to get parts I printed to fit together well, not your parts, parts I made or downloaded.

I like it tho. Great work.

It takes about a week of continuous printing. Maybe more.

The STLs/slop_calibrator_parts.stl model still exists for slop calibration.
