Tired of the floppy door on your Qidi Tech 1? Print these stops out and drop in an 8mm magnet - the door will no longer vibrate when printing nor will it swing into the interior of the printer.

2 versions are available. One has the magnet hole facing the printer and the other has it on the outside. I opted to use the outside version since the neodymium magnets I used are rather strong. Did not have to glue them in as they pressed into place. In order to attach these to your printer's handle, you'll need to use longer screws. If you still have the little spare parts box that came with your printer, there should be 2 slightly longer ones that fit into the handle.

Designed with 123d Design. Files included so you can adjust the magnet opening for different size magnets. Screw holes are kind of tight. Indentation where the handle fits into is a little loose since the holes may not be perfectly centered.

I was just thinking the other day that I needed to design something like this! Now I don't have to! THANKS!!
Do you know of a good latch to keep the door open? The few I have tried don't work for our machine.



Cool! Glad you like it.

As far as keeping the door open goes, make sure that the big screw that's in the middle of each hinge is nice and tight. Mine stays open after tightening those two screws. Other than that, maybe you can try super gluing really small magnets over the allen screws. Haven't seen any of the latches, so I can't comment on them
