The parameter to play with is
sample_z which sets the overall height of the main body. The effective lever length of the legs is 5mm shorter than
sample_z, i.e. the default has
sample_z=65 which gives a 60mm lever. My design assumption is that the legs bend through 6 degrees, meaning you get lateral travel that is about \pm10\% of the lever length, i.e. \pm6 mm or 12mm in total.
The number you need to change is in
microscope_parameters.scad line 44, I don’t think this gets overwritten by the build script. You can then compile the modified main body by opening
I’ve not tested this recently with anything other than the default value - but increasing it to, say, 85mm ought to work. I think the only other thing you might then need to adjust is the illumination mount, though it might adjust automatically if I was really on the ball when I wrote that code…
