Ender-3 Display Stand
As I prefer the printer electronics not beeing baked in the IKEA LACK cupboard, I relocated mainboard, power supply and display outside the LACK using a long ribbon cable.
My first try designing a display stand ended in something like a brick (can be seen in my other designs)
This cover here is slim, looks better and can be assembled without glue or screws.
ORDER OF ASSEMBLY:
1.) Slide in display (with attached cable) in the main frame
2.) put loose cable end through the holes
3.) install cable plug from the inside (if it is too loose a drop of glue will help)
4.) slide in the left side (the one with the tubes) starting with the upper tube; the cable is intended to fit between the tubes and the backside of the main frame (min. 2 mm space)
5.) install the right side starting from the upper part.
--> The quality of fit is depending on printer precision; if the fit is too tight use a knife to remove potentially overextruded corners.
--> Is works well together with the beeper silencer: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2943218

Best orientation for printing: everything laying on the side.
Support only needed for the cable plug hole.
Taking the measures using a vernier caliper.
Design was done in Fusion 360
The aim was to: Make it slim, assembly by simply sticking it together, center of gravity positioned to get a stable stand.
