Do not print these. They don't actually help. In fact, I took mine off a few days ago after reading several places that said they don't help and my print quality has gone way, way up. Somehow these actually INCREASE z-wobble.

just printed 2 pieces they fit perfect

I just made my second print, and its this T corner, fits perfect on a Anet A8

Does it also fit with the Anet A6?

the a6 has a sturdier frame so it doesnt need stabilization corners like this

no, the a6 has a different frame

How do you print it? what orientation?

Printed in the original orientation with raft, came out and fits perfect.

Fits the vertical frame perfectly, but a little loose on the horizontal.
Still great job though.
Thank you

this print was awesome thank you

Fits excellent! Thanks

I didn't trust that it would stand up, so I flipped it 180 deg, copied it to print 2 at once, and it came out perfect.
Thank you

Wow! This really does work as good as the comments lead you to believe!

I would like to make a suggestion.

Add holes at all three corners so that one can screw this to the vertical and horizontal pieces. Anchoring this brace to both pieces with screws will improve the diaphragm this creates. Thank you for creating this.

Good idea!

thank you so much. it helps with my print especially the longer prints i do (16hours).

This was my first/calibration print on my newly-built first 3D printer! Once I had both belts tightened correctly, it turned out great! Thank you Electrico.

Just printed this in the vertical orientation in PLA with no problems. No supports needed. Fits very well onto frame, no adjustments/hammers needed.

the t braces helped quite a bit with my prints also it doesnt look bad at all on my printer as well

Fits nice and snug just a light tap with a hammer seats it to the top

why wont it download

Not sure but after the first layer you can manually set the fan to run... Just an idea... I'm a 3d printing noob.

Fits perfectly snug on my new anet A8 from Gearbest a couple of days ago.
Satisfying it needed a bit of force to finally snap into place very securely

I have the "newest" A8 (measured ist, all plates are 8mm) and it fits just perfectly

Thanks for the Design!

It looks like it doesn't fit on the newer Anets, the top acrylic plate width is 8mm and the vertical acrylic piece is 7mm. The t-corner have 7mm in both sides so it fits in vertical, but it doesn't on the top. Anyway good job with it it looks like works for the most of Anets.

it keeps falling off the build plate, even with a brim printing on buildtak!

Same, I can't seem to get it to work. Anyone have rotated the part so the bigger side is on the hot bed?

Looks like to answer my own question, I have rotated the part so that the main surface is flat on the bed and that solved my issue on printing it.

Can't get it to print either. Tried twice but no go.

the only print that does it :(

I added a thin layer at the bottom (1cm to every direction) and that provided enough support to print it without falling off the build plate.

Did anyone use supports for these, flip it or just print it the way it is?

I printed with a brim, no other supports, turned out great!

Useless part, the screws and the tabs that goes thru the front plate are enough to prevent movement.
The problem lies on the vertical plates and the best to do and you will be glad if you do is to mount a 1/2 x 3/4 rectangular aluminum tube along the vertical plates with 3 screws and that will prevent the tiny vibrations along the plates, also need one on top with 90 deg. brackets to really stiffen the machine. See what I did http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2148996, but I used 3/4" x 3/4" cause was what I had available at that time.

ANET A8 CARRIAGE PLATE FOR J-HEAD EXTRUDER

I was blown away by how well this fit the frame and what a difference it made. Great job.

Mar 13, 2017 - Modified Mar 14, 2017

Printed two and they fit perfectly - 10/10!

I was amazed at the difference these made, even with just the one on whilst the other one was printing.

Printed perfect and works good Thank you

Made them on my Anet A8 with the semi circular fan duct thingie and they came out perfect !
No problem to fit them in (even with the paper still on) but still they don't move and squeeze on the frame with force.
Really helped with the vibrations but can't say i've noticed any changes in printing quality so far (was already pretty good anyway :) )
I used some Ice filament i got recently and it seems a little bit more flexible than the other ones i tried so maybe that helped.
In short, cool upgrade, many thanks !

The picture looks like it was printed vertically, and it doesn't look like it should cause problems. Printing horizontally would probably require supports.

Do you guys print this as downloaded or rotate it so it's laying flat?

Late reply, but I printed as downloaded, turned out great!

EN: Those are too tight! I know they have to be tight but thats too tight! 0.1 - 0.3 mm more on the guides won't hurt anyone.

ES: Muy ajustados. Entiendo que tengan que ser ajustados pero son demasiado ajustados. 0.1 - 0.3 mm mas en las guías no harían daño.

Do you have to take it apart to install this? I printed it but the fit is so tight that i can barely get it on the upright, and to move it up to the crossbar would require a lot of force.

i printed them at 0.1 resolution and did a quick sand on the inside faces, still tight but they go on easier

Thank you, This increased my Quality a lot. i printed these in black, so they are very unobtrusive...

i cant understand how does this can help in reducing the z wobbling. It shouldn't, it will be little by little moved down with every wobble movement

I printed a couple of these and they fit perfect ... thanks to Electrico! Also, thanks to LittleMrJ - I also left the paper on mine, and I made the adjustment to allow for wider channels.

I trimmed the corners with the filament cutter to accomodate the tool holder mod, and my rig is less squeaky. I am only 30+ mods away from silent running...

I printed this and it works very well !. Thanks Electrico !!!!

Don't even attempt to print, unless you got something similar to this: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1823404
I wasted a lot of plastic until I realized I needed much better cooling than the stock fan duct can provide.

On my 10th attempt, I used a circular fan duct similar to the one reference above, and the following cura settings:
Layer height .2
Initial layer height .32
Infill density 20
Printing Temperature 185
Build Plate temperature 60
Retraction distance 4
Retraction speed 60
Print Speed 30
Travel Speed 120
Initial layer print speed 10
Regular fan speed 90
Maximum Fan speed 100
Regular Fan speed at Height .32
Build Plate adhesion type Brim

Key points : lower the nozzle temperature, use brim support, lower the printing speed and boost the fan close to max.
Good luck!

Anet A8 prusa-i3 circular fan duct

Printed on my Anet A8. They are a perfect tight fit so if yours don't fit, you're doing it wrong. I chose these over others as they are unobtrusive and they perform their function perfectly while leaving plenty of room for other mods/additions. I added these for strength and stability before mounting my 1kg PLA reel on top of the printer and have 100% successful prints using this setup. Thank you Electrico.

Бесполезная затея. Я сделал иначе. Рёбра жёсткости по всей высоте вертикальной части корпуса. Именно корпус изгибается, а не только соединения. Я вклеил перпендикулярно этим двум элементам корпуса пластины из оргстекла (использовал эпоксидную смолу) и получилось что-то наподобие корпуса Anet A6. Теперь жёсткость достойная.

(Google Translate)
Useless idea. I have done differently. Reinforcement ribs on the entire height of the vertical part of the body. It bent housing, not only the connection. I pasted perpendicular to these two elements of the body plate of Plexiglas (used epoxy resin) and got something like Anet A6 body. Now rigidity worthy.

Склеил эпоксидкой оргстекло ? Удачи.

Склеил эпоксидкой оргстекло и акрил. Работает уже больше полугода отлично, шов очень прочный, горизонтальные вибрации, свойственный конструкции А8, сошли на нет. Я лично не вижу причин для ехидства. Если на принтер не вставать ногами, то ещё 100 лет корпус проживёт, а с задачей по гашению горизонтального раскачивания эти вставки справляются полностью. Если раньше было видно как шатаются катушки с пластиком на держателе сверху корпуса, то сейчас они неподвижны. Ну, можете печатать эту шляпу, но она не будет работать так же хорошо, как монолитный корпус у меня.

Да это вообще шляпа походу. Не может она работать, съедет вниз под действием сил, раскачивающих вдоль направляющих каретки

why would you use these corners can somebody explain?

It helps stiffens up the frame so it doesn't shake as much as it's printing. You can really notice a difference once you install these.

Not a bad idea, but this is made to the wrong dimensions. The one I made in PLA cracked when I tried to force it on, & my ABS version didn't fit fully either. I loaded the design in AutoCAD to discover the channels were 7.9mm wide, trying to fit on the 8mm Anet frame. Combine with the fact I never removed the protective paper from my acrylic... I remixed the clips to 8.1mm. They work fine for me now. Thanks Electrico.

Excellent design, nice tight press fit and it's got my printer rock solid combined with the other upgrades on here.

Como se imprimen? tal como salen o se giran 180º?

Buen trabajo

Tal y como salen se puede imprimir. Dependerá de la calidad de la impresora, pero en esa posición sale muy bien y sin necesidad de soportes.

How do you install it?

Fit them onto the vertical support plates and then slide them up into the top support plate...

Acabo de imprimir los soportes laterales.. me parecen excellentes. - Tengo que hacer algun diseño que muestra la diferencia, antes y despues. - Great job!
