This is a RepRapDiscount Smart LCD Controller mount for any Prusa I3.
This design is based on clefranc's design.
The clefranc's design has some issues that solves this version.

  1. This version supports also ebay cloned "RepRapDiscount Smart LCD Controllers" that use the high profile potentiometer (look at the photo 13).

  2. Can support 2004 LCD panels with shorter cables (30cm instead of 60 cm, look at the photo 14).
    This design is also compatible with the original design, so you have two ways mounting your 2004 LCD.
    On the Left Z axis (my new design support also shorter cables) or on the front of the Y axis (original design)

Notice that the LCD cables are shielded with aluminum tape and then isolated with transparent crystal tape and i suggest you to do the same on your machines.

How to proceed :

  1. Print the "LCD-Controller-without-label.stl" this is the front panel made by HenzMc https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:345617

  2. Now you have to print 2x brackets "LCDSupport-8mm-_20mm.stl" : by TrustFm inspired by https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:85644/

  3. If you have short cables or simply like to mount the LCD at the Left Z axis
    1x "LCD-Motor-Bracket.stl" : by TrustFm inspired by https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:85644/
    4x "LCD-Motor-Cylinder.stl" : by TrustFm
    You also need :
    4x M3 20mm screws and
    4x M3 nuts
    else you are done !

  4. Optional options :
    1x "LCD-Knob.stl" : by TrustFm based on https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2471671
    1x "OptionalBracket.stl" : by TrustFm Optional Bracket for better fixing at the Left Zmotor
    Take a look at the photos 9 and 10
    For the optional Bracket you will need
    1x M3 12mm bolt and
    1x M3 nut
