Replicator Rear Riser
by Hammerhead, published
A more elegant back panel for your Replicator, derived from the original MBI part files. I designed this in a fit of OCD, having smudged the screen printed ink on the original plywood riser. There are two versions of the riser plate - one for decorative use, and a second file with screw/nut relief for those of you who wish to use this model to replace (rather than just cover) their rear riser panel.
1) Print riser base with 10% infill, 1 shell. I used Sailfish at 120mm/s and it turned out just fine, though with some curling after printing the art on top, probably due to the temperature differential.
2) Print second file (art) with 100% infill at 60mm/s, but be sure file is elevated from build platform by 3.825mm so that it prints ON TOP of the riser base. For those of you who are NOT using dual extrusion, see the note below regarding the offset file.
3) Adhere panel to your existing riser with double-sided tape, or using the panel with reliefs for bolt/nut, remove existing and replace with new.
NOTE: You will see there are five separate files:
- repriserdisp - a consolidated file for the purposes of display here at Thingiverse. Final build will consist of two of the below files - repriser and one of the art files.
- repriser - the riser base only
- repriserko - riser base with knockouts for bolts/nuts (uploaded a corrected version of .21" depth for better fit)
- riserart - the separate art to layer on top of the riser panel.
- riseroffset - depending on your machine and how well your software works, you may need to use the 'riser-offset' file, which prints a small rectangle .5" offset away from the base so that the extruder head doesn't collide with the edge of the riser panel as it elevates at the beginnning of the print cycle.
