This thing is an extension of an earlier creation, that being the bottom case for the D7 with a cutout for a fan. Those files are still enclosed but with the new version providing good cooling, some of the files are now obsolete. That said, there is actually a new case back that supports the belt drive mod for the printer (where the stepper driver extends out a bit).
The main reason for this new thing is the addition of a replacement top. My goal was to create a viewing port while dramatically reducing the weight of the top.
The top is designed to be assembled from five pieces using either epoxy, bolts, or both. Given my desire for an epoxy assembly there are no bolt holes. If you want to use bolts you will need to drill or melt guide holes. I use a longish 3mm rod for hole melting and it works and looks fine though care is required.
Note that you will see multiple versions of the front. These are to accommodate the FepVat. The original viewing port is placed for the height of the original vat. There is one for the FepVat and one that is a compromise. The one in the pictures is the original.
There are also two versions of an assembled top for those folks with a giant printer! One of these has supports built in and the other does not.
Finally. These are big prints...especially the full case versions. I uploaded more than the usual number of images so you can make an educated decision as to whether to tie up your printer!
