Description

Heyhey,

Also having problems with ugly warping abs models becaus of cooler airflow/ heat loss in your printer?

This lid should help you a lot to prevent this from happening.
There are 3 positions, Closed (duh), open 90Β° and removed from printer. (Well if you are creative, limitless)

I was originally planning to do this with a piece of plexi, but I needed some test cases for large chopped pieces, so I also provided a prinable lid.

Same goes for the screws, needed to test thread printing, so you'll also find some printable screws.

This is a work in progress, so there could be some changes.
You're free to add some change requests in the comment section, I'll be glad to incorporate them
.

source files are included (pro/e wf3). Please reupload if you improve them!

WORK IN PROGRESS.... action shots will follow.

UPDATE1; The upper parts didn't fit nicely, fixed (17/11/2014)

Materials and methods

4 x Din912 M6x35 (or the "long" printable screws)

4 x M6x20 flat headed (or the "short" printable screws)

2 x "lock" piece fo top

1 x "hinge" piece for bottom
