RepRap Enclosure Restraints by kwixson Mar 19, 2013


Want to transport your RepRap without having to re-align, re-tighten and generally re-calibrate your bot? This set of things will allow you to secure your RepRap Prusa Mendel i1 or i2 to a piece of wood, typically plywood, so it can be moved without tweaking your frame. It also has the benefit of stabilizing the machine, improving prints.

The foot restraints keep the machine from shifting and the tiedowns keep the machine in the restraints.

Print four foot restraints and 4-6 tiedowns. Position your machine on a piece of plywood (1/2" or more thick) and mark the location of the feet. Screw down the foot restraints in place, then mark the center lines between feet. Along the lines screw down some tiedowns. Do not put any of them in the center of the span between feet because parts of the machine will be in the way. Use zip ties to secure the threaded rod frame to the enclosure tiedowns.
