The MorningRod: DIY Version

Regular price $39.00


This version of the MorningRod is for those who want to build it themselves. 

You will need to 3D print your own parts and select whether to use our extrusions, or off-the-shelf 2020 extrusions. 

If you have two spare 20mm x 20mm extrusions laying around, this version of the MorningRod uses standard 2020 extrusions while keeping all the features of the original version.

It includes all hardware required to build it, excluding 3D printed plastics, extrusions, and belts. 

Steel-core belt IS NOT included in this kit due to its variable length. Please purchase it separately here.

This allows the weight to remain very low for affordable shipping.

Build Options

You have TWO ways to get a MorningRod, depending on how much work you'd like to do.

1) Without Plastic/ Not Assembled (3D-Printed Edition)

You will receive all hardware and electronics, except for the 3D parts. You will receive STL files to create the prints. The required filament is PETG. There are 20 parts that require about 20 total hours to print using 2 trays (10 hours per tray).

Assembly of the hardware will require approximately 1.2 hours.


2) With Plastic/ Fully assembled (Easy-Hang)

You will receive the MorningRod completely built and assembled. No additional work is required.
