In this remix I have revised the SD Card adapter housing for the Creality Ender 3 to include an integrated fan cowl shield and removable debris guard.
This thing attaches to the Ender 3 via the 2 front screws that attach the motherboard lid (the existing screws work fine).
1.The thing includes an aperture to allow access to the USB port.
2.Storage for 1 x SD & 1 x Micro Sd card and a card orientation symbol.
3.I have included 2 cable knockouts (you may need side cutters to cut\trim these) to the right hand side of the unit for USB access for any Octoprint requirements.
4.I have included to sizes of grille, the skinny version is quite delicate
I used the foillowing Micro SD to Sd card adapter:
Amazon UK site:
1.Insert adapter into housing.
2.Inserted and push in end stop until adapter is snug. Insert following the direction arrow to allow ratchet to work.
3.Tidy excess ribbon cable with an elastic band leaving 50mm to allow the end to be folded by 90 degrees.
4.Attach debris guard to shield.
5.Carefully insert Micro SD jack into appropriate slot.
6.Fix to lid via 2 x existing M3 hex bolts.
1.The main body is printed vertically and does not need any supports. Dependent on build surface it may need a raft, all my prototypes worked fine without any raft.
2.Body printed @ 50mms 0.2 resolution and 20 % infill (Ender 5).
3.Grille printed @ 30mms, 0.12 layer height, 100% infill.
4.End stop printed @ 30mms, 0.12 layer height, 20% infill.
