I printed the case with the buzzer, and the 2.4 cover. The cover doesn't fit the hinge. Do I need to print the 1.2? What's the difference?

Hi, I am trying to print the buzzer version and it looks like the bottom is not completely flat.
With rafts enabled you can see the areas that are counting as the bottom.
Any thoughts?

I am using Cura 4.0.0.

Interesting, I haven't encountered this issue myself.

Does the preview show the proper first layer? If not, try increasing your first layer height.

Nice design. Wait, so the light from the printer bothers you at night time when you are trying to sleep, Although the noise from the machine running all night doesn't bother you at all?? Lol , j/k

the original screw its very short

i print it today .
but why i cant use the same screw to fit it ?
should i change the screws?

DISREGARD, it was my fault. File should be fine!

Can't recommend.
Unfortunately the lid is really fragile and my first attempt broke when taking it off the bed. The second one came off well, but then I realized it's so thin that you can still see the screen through the PLA.
I thinking it were thicker and more durable it would be really cool.

Oh and it also broke again,so I put some gaffa on the back side, now it blocks the light...

The lid is optimized for 0.4mm line width. If it's any higher or lower, check to make sure that thin walls are enabled in your slicer, or the lid will be hollow.

It was definitely filled, but I might try again when scaled to be thicker.

Can you take a picture of the breaking and light leaking issues? I have not been able to recreate them on my own machine.

Sure thing!

Edit: I'm still figuring out how to make perfect prints, so granted - the breaking could be my fault.

Seems that you already got it figured out, but another reason for the light leakage could be from the filament you're using. It almost looks semi-translucent, so light would be able to pass through it easier. I used an opaque mint green filament, and although the cover "glows" a little bit where the screen is, it isn't nearly as see through as the one in your 2nd photo

Can you send the gcode as well? I'll take a look and if it's not an issue with settings I'll just make a thicker version.

Alright :)
I used several versions, this was the one I hadn't deleted yet.
thanks dude!

Sorry for the delay, Thingiverse manually reviews gcode so I couldn't view for the first few days.

It looks like you're using a really small nozzle (0.2?) and line width, which would negatively impact strength. Also, try to keep your layer height at around half the nozzle diameter, rounded to the nearest 0.04mm for the best z-axis resolution. I've only tested 0.4/0.4/0.2mm respectively, and have had no issues with strength.

Higher temperatures also help with adhesion, so try 210 or so.

With that said, I have uploaded a double thickness version for the light leaking issue. I can't test since I'm no longer using the stock control board and display, so give it a shot and let me know if it works for you. Thanks!

Yeah sorry, it was absolutely my fault lol
I am a total noob and researched a lot of what settings to use, and used a combination of settings that worked okay.

Just recently I learned there are different nozzle sizes... and all those tutorials didn't mention their nozzle size. Turns out mine hasn't even a number on it, neither does my replacement (probably 0.4).
Now I got a few new ones that have a number on it, so it should be fine. Thanks a lot!

Haha no worries, we all started somewhere.

The stock nozzles that came with the Ender 3 are 0.4mm, so I'd recommend a line width of 0.4mm. If you're not using the stock nozzles, there should be some pattern of dots on the sides of the nozzle that indicate the size. Your prints should be a lot cleaner once you have that figured out. Good luck with it.

i did print it two times, both prints did broke within the first hour of useage

Can you describe or take a picture of where it broke?

No good, the hinge rod just breaks inside of it. Bad design, waste of print-time :(

Hallo wie ist der Durchmesser von dem Loch für den buzzer. Ich habe nämlich eine Abdeckung gedruckt, die ich Über den buzzer geschoben habe.

Freue mich sehr Über eine Antwort

MFG

Hello, did you use this silencer? https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2943218

I want to print this cover, but I already have the silencer. I'm wondering if it'll fit well.

Ender-3 / beeper silencer

Nevermind just tested it and it fits perfectly!

I made this...doesn't fit all that well, it's not flush against the back, which causes the screen to bend. Also, you require longer m3 screws

The casing is unmodified from the original, so it shouldn't have any issues. Is your buzzer removed?

No you should add for one with people who want to use the buzzer
