i have got my idea down now to find a way to build it.

today i finally got to trying to get my idea down for my repstrap, if i do it right, it will give me all the pieces i need, with little effort, i just need to find a way to get it out on paper.

 this is the top and bottom plate.

 here i made a middle place y axis it is pretty much just a copy of the top one 
but if i can get this idea to work and figure out how to mount my bearing  to it i think this may work, i am going to talk to a local sign shop and see if this would work with anything they have there now. or at the very least i will try to get the files in a format so they could print me out some sort of template to cut with.

but i do think this is a good way to go this way all my holes should be lined up nice and stright, and it is an easy way to mount a few more things i just hope that i can find a way to do it fairly soon,

my only other issue with this is that i need to find a way to attach the bearings i need to it some how

i wonder if ponoko could even cut these out for me. lexan would look cool but i know it is not always the best to work with.

it is posted here too http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4882
