We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
A system for easily and quickly mounting glass plates to the HBP. This idea is the outgrowth of a group buy coordinated on the MBO Google Groups. I'll never have to print with Kapton tape again!
THIS THING IS A WORK IN PROGRESS - THERE ARE STILL TWEAKS COMING - UPCOMING CHANGES INCLUDE CAPTIVE SPRINGS
Print with 2 shells and 10% infill.
Requires 2 springs 1.25x.3x.032 wire (McMaster Carr http://www.mcmaster.com/#catalog/118/1220/=kfvnod)
Note: Plate 'plunger' is printed upside down.
** REQUIRES THE USE OF A 'Z-AXIS TRICK' CLIP OF AT LEAST .4" TO COMPENSATE FOR HEIGHT OF GLASS AND ADDITIONAL .1" FOR BRACKET.
Power down machine (disconnect power supply just to be sure)
Unscrew bots attaching alumium plate to HBP
Pass screws through bracket
Reattach bolts, loosening 1/2 turn after finger tight to allow for plate expansion.
Install plunger with springs
