Holiday staycation project: Fix this broken pepper mill with a my 3D printer!
I don't usually develop things in the open because reasons, but I'll give it a shot this time.
The parts of the pepper mill don't stay together anymore... probably because some plastic bit has snapped. Let's see if I can do better!
After that: design the plastic bits.
Since I'm using an FDM 3D printer, I have to design the parts without any vertical overhangs. It's a bit tricky, but working under constraints adds a fun challenge to the design. =)
Here's the initial draft design. I'm sure I'll have to tweak some stuff after testing fit and movements and such.
