IBLS Wheel Gauge
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The IBLS Wheel Gauge is a low-cost method for checking wheels for conformance to the IBLS Wheel Standard. The gauge can be printed in low-cost PLA or other plastics, or even metal.
Currently the IBLS Wheel Gauge is only available for 7.x gauge wheels.
IBLS Secretary Daris A Nevil prints the gauge as follows:
- Using a low-cost 3D PLA filament printer "IIP 3D Printer"
- Added glass bed for smooth back
- Treat glass with magigoo before each print
- Adjust printer settings to print slightly slower and improve first layer
