BFB Top-lid Hinges by StevenHoogslag Nov 28, 2012

Description

The beautiful BFB 3000 and 3D-Touch printer comes with a loose top-lid. To avoid damage and scratches I made these hinges. They lock at 100 degrees so the top stays in the open position automatically. The hinges snap on the printer body without any modification. The top can easily be separated and locked-on again.

Excellent! I made a set for my 3D Touch. You will need 2 M5x40mm socket head cap screws and 2 M5 hex nuts for the hinge pivots and 2 M5x30mm socket head cap screws to mount the hinges to the lid. Note that you can mount the hinges on any side of the machine. Wouldn't be very practical to hinge it on the front though! I mounted mine on the right side just because I could!
