ok tried it and realized, that my screws on the left are to short for the xstop mount. what kind of screws did you used?

Do you lose any height on Z ? and if how much ?

Yes, i loose som height on Z, as the chain will hit the knob of the LCD. But i have since moved the LCD down and back, which gives me the full Z axies back.

Geeetech Acrylic LCD mount brackets

Happy to hear that, thanks!

Hi,
may i ask you what settings you used to get that printed so well? I'm having troubles with this machine and i can't set it properly to get the best result possible. My extruder has a 0.3mm nozzle diameter and 1.75mm PLA filament. I tried with a 0.3 layer at 190°C with 65°C heated bed but the object is not clean and sharp edges are not sharp at all, not to mention the holes.
Thank you for your attention! Bye

Did you have any luck? I can tell you that a .3 layer height with a .3 nozzle is really asking for trouble.. although im shooting in the dark here try 205 nozzle 60 bed and .2mm layer height if you know how set your print speed to something like 30 or 40mm/s i know defaults can be 50mm/s+ on some slicers and machines...

Hi Loren94,
Cannot remember the exact settings, but it's printed in ABS with a 0.4 nozzle. Probably around 230C with 0.2 mm layers. If you print it in PLA I would suggest that you print both at the same time to give the PLA some time to set/cool between layers. Both items printed standing upright (not like in the preview thumbnail, but like in the picture). You should have support for the extruder part.
Good luck

Hi,
Is there any reason why you removed the control board's fan on your printer (we see the hole on the left side of the photo behind the Z screw) ?
Regards,
Damien

Hi Damien,

Yes, I have been in the process of putting the printer into a closed cabinet. And there the electronics are mounted on the underside. This is to give a more stable environment inside the printer cabinet, and also since I don't know if the electronics can handle the increased heat.

Best regards

Jakob

Great design mate ! do you think is possible to get fusion files so i can edit the connecting part please

Hi, Sorry I don't have Fusion file for this. I used freecad to make it and see no options to export fo fusion from there. Br.

have you noticed a tiny gap in the solid right around the bottom of the hinge brackets, they really dont intersect you can view it in S3D by viewing through the layers

Hi, Thanks for the feedback, and sorry for late reply. No I have not noticed that and I cannot reproduce it. If you send me a screenshot from S3D, showing where it is, I will try an update the file and send it to you. I printed mine with not problem, and it's been working fine since.
