This Thing is an adapted version of my Anet A6 LCD Cover found here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1926802
This slip-on LCD Screen Cover allows you to print overnight without the blinding effects of the CR-10 screen illuminating the entire room. This was a problem for me because, due to the limited space of my 3-person apartment, my printer is housed in my bedroom. The cover also conveniently fits on top of your control box when not in use while leaving the USB and Micro SD ports accessible.
I have included two models: a blank cover and a cover embossed with my initials for concept proof. Feel free to download the .step files and upload a remix as you wish. Just please remember to attribute. I'd love to see the awesome designs that could come out of this.
When using 15% infill, a slight amount of light allows the cover to have a subtle glow. This gives a pretty neat lithophane effect. The amount of light that shows through can obviously be altered by increasing infill or using a darker color filament, although the setup in which I printed doesn't allow enough light through to even notice.
For printing with no supports and optimal light blocking, position the cover upside down on the print bed so the control knob cutout is facing upwards. This orients the infill parallel to the screen and perpendicular to the emitted light.
Printed with a 0.4 nozzle, WYZworks orange PLA filament, 40mm/s, 3 walls, 210/60C.
