I designed up these self-latching hinges to fit the 5.75mm plywood of the Replicator and accept similar thickness doors or, using the inserts, to accept 3mm (~1/8" Acrylic) doors.


Printed using 0.2mm layer, 20% fill, 100C build plate temp.

Leveled the build plate with my leveling jig http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:23257 after the build plate has heated. Careful, hot things are - well, umm, hot and can burn!

The hinge pins are sized to be a press fit into one half of the hinge and a free fit in the other half. That's a quarter milimeter difference! Yeah Makerbot!

I put everything for 2 doors in one print. If you have trouble with the pins I put up a separate file for them in case you need to reprint them.

How do I contact someone to get them to make me two clear acrylic sides for my replicator 5th gen?? Yours looks amazing... love to M and everything... looks legit and not like a hack job.... please message me back! Would love to get two side covers for printer. The top would be great too!! Looking forward to your reply.


Sweet! :)

Did you get the doors from the master Replicator thing‽ http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:18813http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

The MakerBot Replicator

No I drew it up myself. Ran on laser cutter but I made the mistake of loading a new dirver before I ran this and the door came out with some problems. Had to hand cut and file some parts of it to fix. I will try it again when I get some more acrylic. The fluorescent green really glows when the LEDs kick on!
