Pleb Mining Axe
A 3d printed 'case' for the Ronin Dojo bitcoin node, this design was an entry to pleb miner month competition.
The print consists of 5 parts, each of which can be printed on a typical FDM printer (see screenshots).
- Use a low infill 5-10% (except for the Mount component, use 50%)
- Use a large nozzle (0.6mm with Arachne perimeter setting)
- Use 2 top and bottom layers (to minimize build time)
Start by fixing the brass inserts into the four holes in the front pick.
Next screwed the mount component to a wall through the 5mm diameter chamfered holes. Orientate the top mounting face horizontal using a spirit level.. Warning - The holes do not align vertically.
Place the lower handle into the mount, it should seat flush with the top face. Place the upper handle within the lower handle bore. To ensure a tight fit you can wrap the hidden interference with layers of masking tape. Next press the front and rear picks together, this should be a tight fit. Finally press the pick assembly onto the upper handle.
Run the routing cables through the pick.
The idea is to route the cables through the hollow core of the pick. The Bokuto can be orientated with the Ethernet & Power supply supply neatly routed as shown.
