I am considering dismantling one of my Prusas to make jlguil's case rap.....and can't stop looking at the carrying handle/spool holder on
your Valentia....................this is a brilliant idea !!!.Do you publish the .stl files for this anywhere ???

Geez...... you are good. Amazing swift reply for which I thank you muchly !!!!!!

If you make one, please post pictures of your "make"

Not yet. I'll publish a new thing for it with the stl so you can print it. Will try to do it today.

By the way, i think that you will have an issue with the room of the z motor. And also to accesv the locking screw. I would make it larger than the motor (43mm) to move the lock screw aside the motor. Next time I'm on the computer, I'll send you a sketch.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'm currently obsessed in reducing final travel size (400x400x114mm) and weight (?). At the moment I plan to put the z motors on the top corners, that is why I did the locking screws design that way, and also to just solve the locking issue quickly, and focus on the rest of the elements. I leave the improvement of the locking system (as for example a kind of 3D printed latch) for a further version.

What a remix!!!
I'm impressed.
Hope you'll get this thing working.
I can't wait to see all other modifications you'll make!

I'm glad you like it!
I just liked so much your idea/solution for a portable printer that had to start making a custom version :)
It will still take a few weeks to refine the design and test the ideas, I'll make everything available as soon as it works as expected.
Thank you for your inspiring work!
