Description

Introducing my most complex model yet—the Print-in-Place Scissor Lift! This model is expertly designed to print entirely without support or assembly, showcasing the latest advancements in 3D printing.

Features:

  • Threaded Screw Mechanism: Effortlessly raises and lowers the lift,
  • Functional Wheels: The wheels work, enabling the model to roll smoothly,
  • Easy Snap Base: Simply rotate the base as indicated by the arrow on the bottom, align it with the top piece, and snap it into place to complete the setup.

IMPORTANT: Gently free up the joints before using the screw by gently pushing down on the top and then lightly pulling.

Printed out perfect! I made a mistake and forgot to free up the middle rotating brace and snapped the screw. Printing another as we speak! Thanks for the awesome model!

Oh no! Hoping this one goes well! make sure you gently push down and pull gently on the top of the lift to free up the joints first! Keep me updated!

It took a third try but I was able to get it with a filament change. Was using PLA and changed to PLA Tough (rip). I'm pretty sure it would've worked with PLA this time as I spent time each time the screw would get stuck to pull/push up and down a little to get the stuck parts moving. Now it goes up and down with ease!

I honestly had some doubts about how well this was going to turn out. It just didn't make too much sense how the peices can print over each other without causing problems. But here I am writing this out extremely impressed with the entire process. it popped right off the place and just worked. I didn't have to work anything around or Un fuse any parts. it just worked. I'm flabbergasted is what I'm trying to say I guess. Thank you for showing me what's possible with these machine.

Thanks for the kind words! I’m glad you like it! Be sure to check out my other models if you like this one. FYI, the bottom of the scissor lift snaps into place. I have a video link in the description that shows it :)

Tried in PETG on X1C and after a bit of pulling and pushing I got it working. Amazing model and I can't believe how it printed the horizontal arms in mid-air! Thanks!!
