Andrew Plumb is, by day, an Electrical Engineer specializing in Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software and design flows for integrated circuit (IC) design. By night and on weekends, expanding the frontiers of open source 3D printing hardware and software keep him occupied. My thanks to Adrian Bowyer for establishing the RepRap project, and to the extended Open Source Hardware community for all of your contributions. Machines like these wouldn't exist for the rest of us without your efforts.

Thus, let's set a size of approximately half the build platform width for the bottom joist. Alternatively, we could have also chosen to model the truss as an assembly (grouping of several components) and put together all the parts after printing. Both options are valid. Our last step before getting into the detailed design is to look for any problem areas that might arise. Looking at our original image seen previously, we notice the gussets. 1 mm (though we should aim for minimum of 2 walls thick).

3D-printed clothing, shoes, accessories, and jewelry allow us to truly express our individuality, while 3D-printed guns call into question current laws and regulations. 3D-printed musical instruments allow us to create new musical dynamics, and 3D printing on the nanoscale is opening doors to new stronger, lighter materials.
