If you want to join you must have a well calibrated printer. The quality test is as following :

  1. Print the 20x20 test part [1] and measure it with a caliper
  2. If the number looks good try it on a piece of 20x20mm extrusion (ask for a sample if you don't have one)
  3. If it can fit, try something harder : a hinge-inner
  4. Then a Z-top
  5. And as the most difficult part : a x-motor (it must slide without play nor friction)
  6. Ultimately you can send me the printed parts for a last verification, and I'll give you a note on three criterias
  • Quality : does the parts looks good ?
  • Precision : if the extrusion profile can fit with little or no force
  • Motion : if the part slide well on the profile

If the parts are good enough you'll be welcome to join the network :)
