Replicator Front Cover Stabilizer Brackets & Lift Handles
by Fastrack, published
I found during certain printing operations the cover would move back and forth making a flapping sound which became very annoying. So I designed the stabilizer brackets. I also found the front cover hard to remove after I put the stabilizer brackets on, so I designed lift handles which clip onto the lower alignment slot.
Both of these objects are designed with a .75mm width to space the front cover evenily and are a perfect match with the "Replicator Cover Hanger Bolt Spacers v2" thingiverse.com/thing:27223

Yes I've seen those. I did not add them as I never had an issue. However I've added v2 with 3mm x .5mm dimples.
And you got me thinking so I resigned the lift handles as well v2 has a much larger dimple (old one was 3mm X 3mm x 2mm.. this one is 4.5mm x 4.5mm x 3mm), so it holds on much better!
Hi, can you please add "grip knobs" to the stabilizer brackets so that they grip the Makerbot? They tend to fall off a lot when I remove the front cover.
If you don't know what I mean by grip knobs, please see this item: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Ensure you measure your filament to have a tight fit. The stabilizer brackets may not fit if your plywood has swelled or shunk from humidity. My replicator is in a room that sits around 45%-55% humidity and these fit quite snug.
Original Tinkercad objects:
V2 of the lift handles has a larger "dimples" sticking out the back (old one was 3mm X 3mm x 2mm.. this one is 4.5mm x 4.5mm x 3mm). I also made the front front/back sections 1mm taller. The dimple location has been moved slightly as well. MUCH tighter fit:
V2 of of the stabilizer bracket has dimples sticking out the back clip. These are 3mm x .5mm. I haven't printed these.
