had some issues with the original file. one tab did not line up correctly, and the top panel in the front had a gaping square hole.
I simply shifted over one the holes for the tabs, and fixed the geometry for the front top panel


made at TechShop San Jose with our 60Watt Epilog laser cutter
our bed size is 18x24in. so I also modified the file to fit onto two acrylic sheets (separated in the file on to two layers)

Hey, I used a laser cutter to make this design. However, I don't know how to mount it. Did you have to buy different length M2.5 bolts to attach it? or did you use the ones that come with the printer?

Dittos to Tamu. I don't have a laser cutter so will have to take to a fab shop but I'd like one. PDF and dimensions would be awesome!

Hi there! This is great! thanks for the share! However, the PDF does not have measurements, and if I assume a scale its tedious to measure everything! I use solidworks and e-drawings for my lasercut jobs. So are you able to convert this for me please into an e-drawings file or solidworks file? or a pdf with dimensions please so I can reproduce the drawings? whichever is easier for you. Thanx in advance!

Also I was wondering if you can upload a PDF of the drawings with the measurements and all. thanks a bunch.

Can you show a picture with the access door open please?

Great design, what thickness did you use?

but I'm thinking of beefing it up.
1/8" is probably fine for home use, but in my shop
it gets a little beat up. You might see a revised design for 1/4" in the next week or so.

My afinia doesn't need plexiglass and I use the whole print area. That is as long as you use oem filament. I've never even had to level it either.

Give it time.

depends where you get your acrylic. in my shop we sell the sheets I used for $14.
So, $28 in total. I've noticed longer screws would be nice to have as well, especially if you want to add accessories (spool holders, hex key holders....)
