A pair of spacers for drandolph's "3mm hood and cover" thingiverse.com/thing:23386
These pieces keep compression on both bolts holding the y-axis rods when hanging the front cover.
I found the original were too close together and printed as one piece (probably my HBP to nozzle height). They also weren't high enough. I enlarged the center hole by .35mm as well.
Inside diameter - 3.35mm
Outside diameter - 4.35mm
Height - 5.5mm
"Washer" - 8mm x .75mm
The height allows for about 1mm or so of movement on the front hood, making removing/adding it a breeze.
In my quest to eliminate the vibration sounds. I've added a shorter spacer set with a height of 4.5mm. The cover fits nice and snug and in combination with the lift handles & stabilizer brackets the vibration sounds are gone!
For the lift handles & stabilizer brackets please see thingiverse.com/thing:27532
Printed using .27 layer height, 100% infill (solid), 1 shell. Using Replicator 5.5 but with default speeds (printing small objects like this with acceleration I find melts the previous layer too much). Printed without a raft
After printing I used a .116" drill bit to open the hole slightly where it sits on the HBP.
