We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
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.
Print left and right hinge. Prints best in PLA with fill above 50%.
Use screws and nuts M5 to assembe hinges. Use screws M5 to replace Inbus screws. The height of the top increases by about 1 cm. You can print the two distance-keepers to level the front.
