Approx cost of other, non printed parts?

Thanks for making a derivative of the Printonian! My design also has a primary cell, secondary spider, and crayford focuser. Did you design these parts to be compatible?


Printonian - Printable Newtonian Telescope

That's not a clone, as the Printonian is much closer to the real 3D printed telescope :)

Thanks for checking out my design. It's not a derivative. So, no - it's not compatible with any of your parts. Thanks for asking though!

This is nice! but they are far to big for my printer, how long did it take to print?

The ribs were designed to fit on the Replicator 2 (4th Generation). Each rib took about 16 hours to print!!
