Bench Dog feet/covers for Replicator 1
by delsydsoftware, published
I've been propping up my Replicator 1 with Bench Dogs (http://www.amazon.com/Bench-Dog-10-035-Cookie-Grippers/dp/B0037Z7D0A/ref=pd_sim_hi_9 ) for a long time now. When I made the Rep1 fan mod (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:29202) , I needed a way to raise my Replicator to leave enough space for the larger fan. I found out that Bench Dogs worked perfectly. As a bonus, their double-neoprene surfaces really help to reduce vibration and noise. However, they are bright orange, and they tend to get misaligned if I need to move the printer.
These covers have slots which line up with the wooden feet on the replicator. They also cover up the nasty orange plastic of the bench dogs.
Print at 100% infill. No supports are required. Print 2 copies of Rep1_benchdog_A.stl and 2 copies of Rep1_benchdog_B.stl.
I recommend applying these whil they are still warm. The tolerances are pretty tight, and the heat will help to make a nice, tight fit. I allowed for a slight gap, so that the neoprene on the bottom of the bench dogs is exposed.
