    Hey all. I wanted to see if anyone was interested in building a telescoping rat maze frame. I sketched out some suggested shapes in the part/assembly files attached and dwg sketches. I'm also including pictures of the frame on a fully built non-telescoping prototype that I produced. Let me know if any of this looks interesting. I'd ideally be looking for a timeline of less than a month.

    And the proposed parts:

    where the grey corner pieces are shelled to accept the green inserts. there are also a few screw holes to link into our support pieces. I have dimensions detailed in some cad files. the thicknesses in the cad files are mostly suggested dimensions. the walls of the shelled pieces can be thickened to whatever, if some size is easier. The individual parts could be made of acrylic, maybe even the shelled parts, and one could use acrylic solvent to weld them into those corner pieces.

    Dropbox w/ cad files
