LCD Controller mounting plate
by ctheroux, published
This is a mounting plate for a Prusa Mendel LCD Controller. It was originally designed for a "RepRapDiscount Smart Controller" mounted in the case "Case for RepRapDiscount Smart Controller" (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:35438).
The mounting plate is parametrized. It can be easily adapted for almost anything you want to mount on you Prusa Mendel using the 2 top bars.
You will need:
- a mounting plate (this Thing)
- 2 (4) "2-way Prusa bar clamp" (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5786) or any other 90 degrees bar clamp such as "Rescue Bar Clamp - without disassembling of Prusa Mendel" (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:33772)
- a 4"1/2 (11.5 cm) 8 mm threaded rod
- 4 8 mm washers
- 4 8mm nuts
- optionally 2 screws or/and glue to mount the display on the mounting plate.
Assemble the above as shown in the pictures of this Thing. 5/16" rods can also be used. The "2-way Prusa bar clamp" is a bit fragile. Print the "beefy" ones with a few spare ones. Do not over tight the nuts. Larger 8 mm washers are preferable.
