Manufacturing Instructions
==========================

This is a 3d printer project that is completely designed using the parametric CAD tools
provided by OpenSCAD. In order to deal with this source code you'll need to install OpenSCAD,
following the instructions at: www.openscad.org

The main structure of the machine is built using lasercut MDF panels. The curves for lasercutting
can be exported to DXF by rendering the lasercutter_panel*.scad files. Open each of these files
in OpenSCAD, press F6 (to compile) and then click Design->Export DXF. The resulting DXF files
can be used to cut 6mm thick MDF sheets (or you can change the thickness in the source if you
plan to work with some other materials).

The complete 3D model of the machine is described by the Metamaquina2Beta.scad file. Open is in
OpenSCAD and press F5 to render it.
