I no longer own this printer so support for this is limited! There have been reports of the left side clips binding so you may need to make your own modifications depending on how tight the clips fit.
I wanted to add a glass bed to my Monoprice Mini Select 3D Printer but could find no clips for it so I created my own. These clips will allow you to level your bed and you can remove the glass easily for print removal. I found a 130mmx130mmx3mm glass bed on eBay that fits well for this print bed. I also worked with a 140mmx140mmx3mm glass bed but it sticks out in places. Note that these clips do not clip down on the glass, but push in tightly to hold glass in place.
You need to print two of the Back Left corner clips (goes on Back Left and Front Right corners) and two of the Back Right corner clips (goes on Back Right and Front Left corners).
Make sure you print out a Z-axis shim first and install before trying to use glass plate!
The clip is customizable if you have your own glass plate it should work for both larger and smaller glass plates if you customize it.
- Make sure you print out a Z azis shim first that matches your glass bed thickness.
- Make sure you measure to get the right height for the latch on the clips if you are not using a 3mm glass plate with 3mm z-axis shim.
- Estimate the glass plate to be smaller in length & width so that the clips push tightly against the glass.
I think this is the final version! Note: I printed with 100% infill and black ABS on this printer for the final version.
I recommend printing just one clip and seeing how it fits and making modifications in customizer or openscad before printing them all!
I recommend printing in ABS since its on a heated bed... but since this bed doesn't get all that hot might be alright with PLA. Supports really only need inside the latch but can possibly get away with no support. I generally print parts like this with high infill. I used 100% infill to prevent the narrow tabs from breaking.
This clip is supposed to fit tightly or the glass will move. However, if some places are too tight you may need to sand a slight amount. I usually use an emery board for this. For me, one of the clips was too tight underneath against the screw mount so I had to sand the edge of the clip latch. You can tell this if the clip doesn't slide up nicely into place when you release tension on the spring.
