don't know about everyone else, but when i downloaded it parts were missing EG: the base(it's even in pictures of parts)

Great model - but has a few issues.

I think file named 'seperator' was a mistake (maybe scaling incorrect?) - it's a huge part that doesn't fit with anything and is not shown in picture of printed product. To those out there, don't both printing part - waste of a lot filament and hours of printing.

When working it's great, but BL26 mentioned, the clips are fragile and break easily when printed in PLA.

There is also a bit of play in model as author mentioned, but I found gently pressing against centre axial while turning helped quite a bit.

For the mechanical pieces, eg gears and etc, print at 100% infill for strength otherwise they break quite quickly.

Overall great model, sorted my bucket of coins in a few minutes.

No instructions on how to put it together,also the main support underneath the sorter seems to be missing

I don’t have a printer, so how could I buy one of these already printed?

Can you make an american coin sorter? Thatd be great!

Hi Maddavo,

Thanks for the remix to which I have printed.
Thought I would add some notes:
All printed and fitted togethor reasonably well however some issues were discovered,
1) The scoop bit at the front that holds the coins before entering the sorter is missing from the uploaded files. I did download "Monedero_V2_Embudo_8" from the Euro version and upscaled it to 125% and seems to work.
2) What is the "Seperator" for? can't seem to see where it fits.
3) The main axle is too long and allows the coin catcher to lift allowing the coins to get jammed. I ended up making a spacer washer to fit between the initial ramp and gear to prevent the jamming,
4) The coin_tray.stl file "apparently" needed to be repaired and in the process looses the locking tabs at the top of the tray. I tried loading it without the repair and the tabs were still not going to be printed.
5) Unfortunately it seems 5c coins are not really liked by the device and causes jams. Not much I could see could be done about it as it would effect clearances in other places ;(
6) the scoop bit mentioned above is a pain to fit, I have just noticed in your complete unit pic that two off the locking tabs are missing...Was this intentional or did they get broken off?
7) I printed this in PLA initially but found the clip on sections like the handle and gear to axle pieces were braking when trying to assemble. I ended up printing these in ABS.
8) Coins falling into the tray sometimes manage to get some good momentum and end up falling out of the tray, was thinking if I could make up some "extensions" to the slots to help catch the coins.

Overall it was good to print and "nut out" its workings and faults, These points are not intended to be criticisms but aids and guides for future printing of this sorter.

Thanks
BL26

ever figure out what the spacer part was meant for??!!

this looks great - let me know how these fixes get on. Eager to print!
