Summary

The original lid for our crock pot cracked in several places and began to fall apart. This is a replacement for it.

The model with the flattened inside to the handle has not been tested but should work.

SCAD file provided, so feel free to tweak.

Instructions

Use a 1/4-20 nut and bolt. The nut will fit very snugly, but should sink properly if you pull it in by turning the bolt. The bolt used here was a 1" bolt cut to length.

Print with supports. Cleanup should be fairly easy if your printer is dialed in for support.

Printed in ProtoParadigm Navy Blue it matches very well with the dark blue features on the crock pot.

Be careful of temperature concerns. Printed in PLA it can obviously get a little soft when the crock pot is at high heat. When this one finally gives out I'll reprint with ABS and see how it does.

This did not work. The two ends would print a few layers and then the middle would start. It would fail, because it was not on the glass and would drag the middle all over the place. Extend the center down to the printbed and it'll print.

This part wouldn't work well if the center were on the same plane as the ends given the domed shape of the lid.

Note that the instructions advise printing with supports. I'd recommend using supports at least for the bottom to address the issue you described. Supports may help with the arc as well if you have problems with that.

I attempted to add supports with FlashForge and it didn't work. It said they had supports, but they never printed. I gave up and printed a different one on here. I'm still new at this, so you're talking to a newbie that doesn't even know enough to be dangerous. But thanks for the guidance. I appreciate the feedback.

I'll give this a try, printed without supports and see what happens. Yes, PLA is a little soft, so I'll make one in ABS when I get the printer moved to where I can print and pull the fumes outside. THANKS FOR MAKING THIS!!!!

Did the ABS melt at 300' Temp ?
