Thanks :) Downloaded slicer yesterday, but will try pronterface. Kind of new to this plastic thingy's if you get it :-)

depends on a whole range of settings, layer heights, nozzle size, machine speed, not an easy question to answer. if you start by getting a copy of slicer and pronterface, you can test different slice settings, when you open the sliced file in pronterface it will give you a suggested run time for those settings

How long time does it take to print this box on the typical MendelMax 1.5 ,approximately?I am building a mendelmax, but thougt about asking a buddy with a soolidoodle printer to fix this box for me prior to connecting all wires etc.

Instructions

Update - Release - final files.
Suits the LCD panel sold by stores.ebay.com.au/fabster3d?_rdc=1

LCD Mount Bracked added to suit Prusa Mendel 8mm rod frame.

Clearance added for nuts at vertex.

Through holes added for zip ties to secure to frame

2mm additional internal clearance added at rear of lcd panel for cabling runs

Mounting location set so that button is directly over the mount, all user force directed straight at frame.

Last photo shows pegs melted down to secure LCD to box.

Heated them up with a small butane torch then pressed them down using the base of a large drill bit

135 x 66 x 27.9 Box OD

132 x 63 x 6.5 Inset recess at base to allow assembly to sit onto "Universal" mount plate for machinery mount options. One such mount is included here, for Prusa Mendel

Knob Recess Ø12.5

LCD Opening 76mm x 26 mm, with setback to outer bezel 98 x 40.5 (0.9mm cover to LCD Bezel)

2.5mm side walls 2.4mm front face.

Corner bevels added for more "finished" appearance

Fit is good.

Pins and heights all spot on.

Next project is to make a mounting and suitable box for Fabster3D Arduino/ramps/LCDBoard combination for Prusa Mendel, in conjunction with this box, and my Power Supply box.

Source files are Vectorworks if anyone is interested,

How it's suppose to be made the bottom of this case? i'm with sprinter and it's creating a complete layer over the air, how it's possible?

I remixed the old backcover and made a plain version of it.

You can give the source? I would like to change the design of the rear. I have another printer model - mendel90.

I wish I would have measured the board I bought from fabster before printing this. The upper and lower boards are not lined up properly and that causes it not to fit. it functions fine but just wont fit. ( +1.5 mm too big) . In order to fix it I would have to de solder the 2 boards, align them properly, and resolder. :<

I have not seen this issue, I will check with my other LCD Shield this evening and if that is an issue, I will adjust the files to a larger size to allow clearance.
I'm sorry this did not fit for you! my LCD shields are both fabster 3d items, I would not have expected variance in this product.
