Hello friend, I have printed your G-code file and it seems to me that it has an incredible quality, I could not wait for the print to finish to ask you to please share the cure profile with which you have segmented, it would be a great favor for me , this piece is by far the best that I have printed with my Ender 3 pro over two weeks that I have been working with this and all thanks to your cure profile, please share the profile.

As soon as I finish printing I will upload my make.

Just printed this using the Gcode uploaded. Long print for me, 8-10 hours (not sure exactly how long, I went to bed before it finished.. it was complete in the morning).

Pros:
Excellent design. It looks beautiful and I love the look of how it lines up. Tools fit well.

Cons:
Gap between the part that is supposed to slide under the display frame and where the print sits on the table. Designed for no feet on the device possibly?
The stock cutters are a VERY snug fit.. difficult to get into and out of the slot for them. Maybe would increase the size of this slot by a few mm to be safe.

Appreciate the comment. I have updated the files so that the clipper slot is wider (now 15mm wide, from 13mm). I have also updated the arm so that the base height is 3mm (which is what I measured my pads/feet to be) along with the walls of the arm (now 8mm, from 4mm).

For my monitor panel, I had to loosen to the front two screws to level it, then tighten them again. Is this possibly something that will help get the panel to slide over/in the arm?

If you don't mind, let me know if that adjustment helps at all or not - maybe the pads/feet aren't the same for everyone or I just need to revamp the arm.

Thanks, again!

I will print the new version to if the adjustments have corrected the issues I was having. The original make has been posted for this as well.

I've added another mm to the clipper slot, from the 2 that I added last night. I'm confident 16mm wide is plenty of room, since the old width of 13mm was the exact width of the clippers so there was a lot of friction, especially with the rubber grips.

I've also changed the arm to be two tabs. They are 1.65mm apart (which I measured the thickness of the monitor panel to be) so it should ensure a very snug fit. They extend 10mm over the panel, and should go up half of the front; I've uploaded a new rendering to show the change.

Sorry for all of the trouble. Thanks again for letting me know what needs changing!

The tabs look like they will be a good adjustment based on a look at the gcode uploaded. I was not able to print the previous version as I had my cable chains printing, but I will print this iteration overnight and see how it looks, and how everything fits.

It really is no trouble. I'm glad to be the test printer and give you feedback so you are able to fine tune your design without burning through too much filament. I think the only modification I may suggest is for the hex wrenches. Almost every other design I see has some sort of cutout for them to fit into. Possibly adding something like this (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3198002) to the slot for them would allow them to stay facing the same direction. I hope I am not stepping on your toes with this suggestion!

Hex Key Holder Ender 3 Tools

All set!

Note: The hex slots will point the keys backwards. I was hoping this would keep it easy to grab one individually (e.g. you don't have to fiddle with others to pull the smallest one) as well as still have a clean look.

That looks killer. I can’t wait to get this printed.

It should make it easier to access each individual hex key as well as keep it looking streamlined.

Ha! Not stepping on my toes at all. Appreciate it again and I'll take a look.

Update: I'm close to an update (for the hex keys) that works - just a heads up so you don't reprint yet.

Well, apparently I missed this comment and set my printer to print overnight. I can confirm that the tab fits snugly on the display mount frame, the opening for the flush cutters is perfectly sized and, because I missed this comment, there are no holes for the hex key lol

Will post my make as soon as I get home and can get pictures.
