I have ordered t-slot, it should be on it way here presently.

So I have printed myself a set of plastics for it also.

In printing these I noticed and interesting effect, this is translucent orange PLA when on the real. When printed Its a lot less translucent, except for the edges, they are still translucent. The edges are printed a lot slower, 30mm/s the rest is printed at 100mm/s. Although it printed fine, it look like at that speed something interesting is happening to the plastic. Since its bonded fine, I dont think is a temperature thing, more air being caught in the print... But this is just theory.

This is also visible in the the left most piece, these parts are mostly perimeter and thus much darker.
