    Description

    I work in a factory where things can get pretty dusty. I decided to make a cover that keep the dust out of the printer. It's laser cut from .25" acrylic and held together with 8-32 nuts and bolts. Its made from the same shape of the printer so it nests right on top.

    Couple questions. What length are the 8-32 blots?

    Do you have a drawing with things dimensioned out? The DXF file format does not store scaling information, so it has to be translated to the proper dimensions. Does 1 DXF unit = 1 inch? That makes the largest piece 13.7235"x13.28" (seems large)

    Thanks!

    Result:
    Good. It was a bit of a tight fit.
    Feedback:
    If I had to do it again, I would taper the taps slightly and put a little more "meat" between the nuts and the screws. Mine cracked a little when I was tightening things up.
