MendelMax Feet, Integrated Floorboard
by srepmub, published
Raise your MendelMax and place the PSU and electronics inside on an integrated floorboard.
I wanted to put my PSU and electronics inside my MendelMax (1.5) on a neatly integrated wood board.
Instructions for an already existing MendelMax:
Create a wood or other type of floorboard (30x46 cm for a normal build), and make four holes in it (radius 3mm, 30x10mm off the edges).
Attach your electronics to the board (I haven't done this myself yet).
Place the printed feet at the corners of the board. Make sure the holes in the plastic and wood are aligned.
Check that the T-slot nuts that you inserted with much foresight while putting the printer together are in the correct spot.
Mount the existing printer on top of the feet, keeping it horizontal so the T-slot nuts don't move.
Use the aligned holes and T-slot nuts and small M5 bolts and washers to screw the feet to the printer.
- Insert two wood screws in each foot.
The STLs are for a vertical gap of 34 MM and 8 MM thick floorboard, which is exactly what is needed to fit in my 5 CM high PSU.
