Now I understand, it would be more safe to fix the display stand to the printer back again.
Its indeed a very good idea. I was not thinking of this.

The original intention was to get the display movable (see picture). For this special reason I connected it via a 2m ribbon cable and made sure, that the center of gravity of the complete stand (incl. Display and cable) is within the bottom surface of the stand. Consequently it only falls over, when you hit it. ;-)

Though, I understand your idea and I like it.

To design a fixation I would need to remove the noise/vibration canceling feet I installed to the printer. Otherwise I won't be able to make proper measurements. As I'm happy with the movable version, I will not disassemble the printer right now to implement your idea, but the moment I do, I will let you know and discuss the different options (left/right side; in which part of the holder to put the screws and so on). I'm open for suggestions.

So to summarize: sorry, for now I won't design a connection between the printer and the stand, but once I'm about to do it, you will hear from me again.

Best regards
