Modeling Parts for 3D Printing with Shortcuts

A while back the kerf plate on my chop saw got damaged. It’s not a well known make (at least, not to me, it’s a “Rexon M2500AE” that I got second hand), so sourcing a replacement wouldn’t be trivial. As time has gone on, it’s got more and more damaged, to the point that the saw is getting dangerous to use. So rather than use it in it’s increasingly dangerous state or replacing the saw, I decided to try and make a replacement on my 3D printer.

My Experiences With a Cheap 3D Printer

I’ve been intrigued by 3D printing for quite a while now. Whilst I’ve liked the idea of playing with a 3D printer, I have not wanted to expend the time and effort required to individually source parts and, as I haven’t really had a good plan of what to do with one once I’ve got it, the cost of buying the more consumer focused, pre-assembled ones has been just not been financially viable.
