    Are there blueprints anywhere for the curta? Might be the ultimate test of a 3d printer.

    Just found this thread. I had a Curta. Made like a Swiss watch. You can download 3D files to print one.

    There's a set of CAD drawings for one of the Curta calculators, one at 1:1 scale and another at 3:1. I've printed most of the parts for the latter except from a few small one that don't print well at FDM reslutions. If anyone is interested I'll dig up links to the CAD files.
