Astronomy and 3D printing

Murray Forbes

Occultation Section (RASNZ), VSS, Wellington Astronomical Society

This presentation will describe my recent 'adventures' in 3D printing a few parts for a telescope accessory when I found the commercially available part did not fit. Based on my brief experience in this, I will outline the various pros and cons that I've found. I will also have a few of my failures available for the audience to inspect.
