Replicator 1 HBP height adjustment retaining jig (Total revamp)
by 66tbirdJZ, published
This little device slips over two of the HBP height adjusting knobs to prevent them from working lose during the vibration incured during printing. I printed it weeks ago and put it to the test doing large heavy prints that used to make me adjust each new print. Atfer installing these I've yet to make an adjustment.
The jig clips on front to back, or back to front. One for each side. I printed mine at .20mm, 1 shells, 15% infill, no raft, 110-240C- enclosed
I did another run to fix an issue and now have a new file. Did again and now have a really tight fitting jig. Included are two spreads to preload the jig so instalation is quick. Just open the clamps and hold open with the raised part on the rectangle pieces. When in place (narrow side up) just pop the off the pieces holding the jaws open. It's now on tight.
Anidotal note: My first set printed fine and worked well for me. A freind went with a Rep1 and printed a set, then another, on the third he came over, tossed then in my lap stating 'your better than this, fix it'. He was correct, they were junk because my stl was junk. So I redesigned it right this time. Now it's 'wow went on easy, hope they can come off agian'. They do and the HBP does not drift up over time do to fibration. Sorry (thx fastrack) I didn't pursue the issue when first mentions in the replies.
