These are designed for drandolph's "3mm hood and cover" thingiverse.com/thing:23386
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
Printed using .27 layer height, 100% infill (solid), 1 shell. Using Replicator 5.5 but with default speeds (printing small objects like this with acceleration I find melts the previous layer too much). Printed without a raft
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.
