RepStrap: capa rocks!

I got my order of ShapeLock / capa in today. I thought it arrived this morning but it turned out that I was just another rookie who fell for the "at unit" USPS naming convention. It did come in the afternoon, however.

The ShapeLock instructions describe it as "modeling clay on steroids" and I have to admit that I agree with them. This stuff rocks! Boil some kernels in some water and mold away.

It took me 45 minutes to mold these four tooth pulleys per the RepRap instructions.

I didn't expect the results to be so good! My only concern is that I made these pulleys too small for the Z axis. We will have to see.
