uhm is it just me or does the plexiglass alone for this cost 60$?

am I like... googling something wrong? is this arcylic or plexiglass!

Hi,
This looks great. You did not mention if it’s a Lack or Parsons table.

Great desing! I made one and have to say my hinge broke because the weith of the door so I recommend to insert back those "custom supports" to reinforce those hinges.

I will upload some pictures and adds I made

Hi!
Thanks for the tip. Until now I do not have that problem but I also open the doors carefully.
I also priny these with 210 degrees so the layers can bond better.
Waiting for those pictures.
Btw I'm Portuguese;)

Uploaded. By now I posted:

Will update with anothers mods I made and better pictures
BTW Good point to heat it up, I usually print very cool to get a good definition and didn't change temp

PD I read your profile and found it so erased that question ;) Tought you were spanish bc your name

Webcam holder for plexiglass

Dear JAfonso!

Thanks for this cool remix, I'm also going to make it after I've manage to get the plexis.

One question though, what I just do not understand by the pictures. The bottom hinge holder part (pic#4): do I need to cut the thick piece, don't I, or how will the hinge 'fit'?

I am thinking about creating a double half-door instead like the prusa version by mirroring the hinge elements. We'll see how it will work.

Thanks!

The bottom hinge holder is a "custom support" so after the print it´s easily removed. If you print the part upside down you will have to add supports in slicer wich results in more printing time. See picture.

About creating a double half-door show the final work then with a "remix"
Good work!

hello JAfonso,
I was able to print all required parts successfully. Many thanks for providing the remix!

I wanted to ask now before I remove the "Custom Support". I have to remove the parts on the attached image (marked red), correct? Should I use a cutter knife, a little saw or a pliers to remove the support?

Thank you in advance!
Florian

Hi JAfonso,

it's me again. I found your "Postprint" pictures and I think now it's clear which part I have to remove.

Best regards,
Florian

Hello,

Yes, you are right. I have taken some pictures so it can be "no doubt" proof.

Best regards

Hey, how did you mount the top corners to the tabletop and the legs?

Check the original version from prusa i3 enclosure. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2864118
You have instructions there.

Found it! Thanks!

Looks really good! Thanks!! It's really cool that you provide individual files for each item.

What Plexi dimensions do I need for your case?
Probably the upper edge thingis could have some L profile to be able to screw the cover plate once more or is it stable enough!

Hi,
Thanks!
I totally forgot to put the plexi dimensions. The dimensions are 440x480x3mm. Once you print one hinge check with plexi.
When I bought the plexi I ask specifically for 3mm of thickness. I already had everything printed when I check that the store gave me the wrong thickness. It was 3,5mm and not the 3mm!:(
You are right about the upper edge parts. Ikea lack are very light and flimsy but they do the work. Some work on top and it´s good to go.
Now in the future I have to take the PSU out with some kind of smart plugs.
Thanks for the reminder.

Do you have hinge with 2mm oder 4mm plexi? Seems none of the stores around me having a 3mm one.

So you think it's not necessary to have another bracket to have more hold from top to the legs?
The other thing: Looks like there are only 2cm left on the top which is very little space especially if you need the full build height. I think it's worth to make it to 50cm. Another adv. would be that most plexi plates are available in 500x500.
Would you rework this into your items?

Do you have hinge with 2mm oder 4mm plexi? Seems none of the stores around me having a 3mm one. --> I don´t have hinge with 2 or 4mm.

So you think it's not necessary to have another bracket to have more hold from top to the legs? --> I think not. I have it like that.

Another adv. would be that most plexi plates are available in 500x500. --> So for me the 2cm it´s more than enoguh at least for now but I´m going to check the cable management and take some pictures. The plexi I ask to cut it for the 480x440.

Would you rework this into your items? --> You can load the stl´s in tinkercad and make that changes. It´s not so hard to do it and gives you an "entry level" on 3D modeling.

Found a nice solution :)

I tried that already but loading the STL makes it to one combined object. Can you share your tinker models?
