UMO Dust Cover

UPDATE: Re-designed the sliders to allow complete coverage!!

=============================================================

Recently I had the cance to take a look onto an industrial FMD printer and a mill with dust covers for the axis.

The accordeon-like cover prevents dust from getting inside so I thought, this might be also usable for my UMO.

Here we go:

- print all parts in the required quantity

- download print head cover (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:77120) and print it also if you don´t have it already

- cut IKEA-IKEA Schottis to lenght

- assamble slider consisting of accordeon mount and accordeon beams
IMPORTANT: one side should be open to be able to slide the bowden through.

- use double sided tape to attache the shorted Schottis to the accordeon beams

- connect the front and rear cover parts using the connetors and some cyanoacrylat glue. IMPORTANT: one side should be open to be able to slide the bowden through.

- use double sided tape to attache the shorted Schottis to the front and rear covers

A closure for the remainning opening can be made, but I decided to skip it...

just print, mount, have a partial closed UMO top...
