Simply clips onto the profile of the Gen 6 Deluxe PCB on my Orca 0.4x but I guess this isn't a machine specific design.
It differs from it's mummy in that more of the electronic connections and wiring plus the fan is enclosed within.
It is fully printable without support.



Print without support.

Attach the 60mm cooling fan to the inside with M3 or M4 fasteners and clip on.

I have included an stl file without the Gyrobot logo.

I printed with 100% infill for strength and at 0.2mm layer height.

Fashionably colour co-ord your printer even more plus help hide those wires.

Weak design, needs internal supports for strength - maybe thicker walls.
It also does not suit the generic gen6 board, the connectors are in different spots to the openings on the case.

Weak design, printed fairly well but broke immediately. (the corner "leg" which meets the two openings)
Should have thicker walls and internal supports in the corners.

Also, it doesn't work well with the generic gen6 as the ports seem to be in different locations to your machine - ive had to butcher it to fit.

Sorry to hear you had problems, I am happy to create a thicker walled derivative for you but unfortunately I don't know what the dimensional differences are between your generic Gen 6 board and the Delux version that is standard on an Orca. I've edited the title to include Delux to avoid any confusion.



Ahh I see, I didn't know the Orca had the Deluxe board.
Yeah 100% infill.
I would add some diagonal braces in the corners, it would make it a lot stronger. :)
