This dataset provides all the design files necessary to replicate the iceberg coring drill. Please refer to the manuscript published in HardwareX - Please also refer to the instructions in the file 'build_instructions.pdf' The 3D printed parts are printed in nylon using selective laser sintering (SLS). SLS 3D printing is not required, however, and 3D printed parts can also be printed using more traditional 3D printers and filaments (e.g., PLA, PETG, or ABS). The design files include .STL and .STEP files for the 3D printed and machined parts, respectively. There are no metal alloy requirements for the machined parts. The 3D printed parts were constructed using SLS nylon, though they can also be constructed using PLA, PETG, and/or ABS, and the metal parts are machined using aluminium, stainless steel, spring steel, and knife steel, as indicated in the bill of materials table.
