Perfect! Thanks a bunch!

Thank you for you upgrade is very helpful.
Could you share my your Cura profile?
Regards

Could someone that has made this please comment with what screws you need and how you assemble it please!! I have made it but don't know what screws I need to use / find. I'm sure I can probably work out the 'how' but I don't want to strip the plastic by using the wrong screws. It took all day to print.

I used the same screws of the original mount for the rear plate. You may use longer M3 screws for the front plate.

Good job! Thank you!

Great design. Now it is easy to insert SD card and view LCD screen. Thanks for sharing.

Hello rogerquin

I would like to make this even mpre steep almost perpendicular, could you share the DWG.

thank you

I printed this case and problems with sd card disappeared, but its posibble to fix it without case also. Just replace steel screws and brass spacers in display with nylon ones(or any unconductive material will work). But i recommend print and mount this case. It makes operating printer much easer. Good design ! !

Hi Rodger. I must have not slept properly because I cannot figure out whether we are meant to keep the acrylic backing plate or not, and whether the brass offset nuts are needed/moved in this new configuration. I will probably have it figured out by the time you reply, but a little step-by-step guide might add value to getting this upgrade installed more smoothly (at least for me). Cheers, and great work.

I am similarly confused about the next steps for actually installing this. Seems we aren't supposed to use the stock screws?

Rodger thank you very much, you really made my day.I did as you suggested and printed the owl pair in fact I print them twice. The results were quite nice both times.
I was ready to disassemble box it up and send it back and hopefully get a refund. I am in the process of printing your case as I write this. I agree with you is an awesome printer once you get the interference issue out of the way.
I have added a LED light strip inside which lights up inside quite nicely. I was also not happy with the print bed dropping when powered off. To fix this problem I added a counterweight. The bed assembly weighs exactly 5 pounds. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0034ZNM5S/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I made a pulley system that attaches to the top rail at the back which allows the weight to travel up and down the back of printer on the outside. It seems to be doing the job quite well.
Again thank you Rodger I was pulling my hair.

Nice! I'm glad it worked out. Great idea with the counterweight. I hope Anycubic addresses the interference issue. The 4MAX is a solid performer, and can easily become Anycubic's best 3D Printer.

Hi,

I have an idea for an upgrade. I am not sure if it is really needed because I never need to press the reset button which is not accessible also in the original position. But maybe you can add a small hole to use a small pin like a paperclip to press it or create direct a button in your case. But as I said, maybe it is not needed only as idea for a version 1.1

Thanks for the feedback. I don't know if the reset button is enabled in the firmware, but it's nice to have the option. One way to find out is to try it. I'll add it to the next version. Thanks

Very very nice design, the screen fits exactly and feels very strong. Mounting is relatively simple. Very nice upgrade of the printer.

A small point that may be improved, the back of the SD slot is just a bit too tight, insertion of the SD-card is a little heavy. A few tenths of a millimeter backwards would work better and smoother.
Maybe this is only the case with my printer, the SD-slot can be a little off, or maybe not a perfect bridging of the gap (printed with no support).

Glad you like it, and thanks for the feedback. I added a second version of the case with a modified sd card slot which is easier to print.
