Summary

I designed these to hold the front panel for http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:23386 but then as I thought about it I made it do so much more.

Instructions

Print one set out for the front panel of http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:23386 slide them on and slide your front panel on and off all day long.

If you don't have laser cut parts you can cut square pieces of acrylic and it will work just as well. The same holders can also be used for the sides.

For the front get a pieces of 3mm acrylic cut to 15-3/8" Wide by 8-3/4 Tall.
For the sides get two pieces of 3mm acrylic cut to 9-1/8" Wide by 8-1/2" Tall.

They would also go well with these nice little finger handles. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:27532 by http://www.thingiverse.com/Fastrack

Ohh, I see. Good point. I suppose I'm spoiled with laser cutter access.

When you say, "but then as I thought about it I made it do so much more," what do you mean? Does it do something other than holding the front panel in place that I'm missing?

I may have oversold it when I said that. I ment if you didn't have a laser cutter you could just use square pieces of acrylic and you could also use them for the sides.

Ohh, I see. Good point. I suppose I'm spoiled with laser cutter access.

These look great -- printing them out now - noticed however that replicatorg gcode generator complains about the bumps along the interior (angle too extreme? Gives triangle error). Did these print out perfectly for you?

They printed good for me. I think it's from triangle errors. I only know Lightwave and the stl functions are not fully developed.
