We strongly believe in supporting the community of EEW users. One of the ways we do this is we design 3d printed accessories for our wheels and release them as open source so that other can freely print their own parts. We don’t sell these parts; however, if you have a 3d printer you can get the files we’ve designed and print them yourself. Even if you don’t have a 3d printer you can sometimes use them for a low cost at your local library or Makerspace.
Our open source license also lets others print these parts we’ve designed and sell the parts. This is often a good option for people who want to get these accessories, but don’t want worry about the details of printing the parts. Below is a list of people and small businesses that have told us they are selling our parts.
One popular 3D part for the EEW Nano are the yarn guides. I never designed these files so you won’t find them on my page above, but Vampy has made the EEW Nano yarn guides here.
If you know a fair bit about 3D printing and want a low cost place to order the files above, one good site that is lists lots of options is Craftcloud. I’ve used Craftcloud for some projects and was happy with the results. The list of stores below are easier though if you aren’t familiar with different 3D printing processes.
