You can put a photo to see how it is armed

So... I love the design. But... the two-part middle segment is too large to print on a stock 101Hero, FYI I printed the end caps first, and those are fine. If you have the originals to split it, I'd appreciate it. If not, I can try splitting it in OpenSCAD, but derivatives of derivatives start introducing errors.

If you could split that combined middle into two proper pieces, one could angle it across the length and print it. But with both together, it's not really doable.

I've posted the middle pieces as individual files.

Thanks so much. The larger piece with it's "ears" are just a little to big to print side to side. Due to the print area on the 101's original firmware being square though, you can print it corner to corner. Next step for me will likely be flashing to a newer firmware to get the larger print area (and maybe fix the bug with the 2004LCD)? But having this safely up on the top of the frame will be nice. :)

Thanks again!

I printed these on my 101Hero using the stock controller & original firmware standing upright. Did you lay the larger piece down? Even combined, the total dimensions of the center pieces (as they were in the single STL) were only 97.71mm x 32.69mm x 37.91mm.

The stock Hero's firmware is a 100mm diameter so even w/ a truncated skirt, I was able to print laying it out across the X axis.

This is obviously not for the stock controller, right?

This is for the stock 101Hero controller. You can replace the SDCard Reader adapter with a RepRap LCD 20X4 board & adapter like the one here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/181043412108

Sweet! ...ordered.
Thank you.

Finally the display arrives!

RColbert, is the SD card support to work on the display?

Yes. If the display is hooked up correctly and the display works properly, the sdcard should also work.

Gah, I screwed up and missed a row of pins, fried the controller, the microcontroller chip.
