3D Printing Upgrades for the Ender 3 Pro!

in #print3d5 months ago

Happy Saturday guys.

It has been a few days since I've had time to post anything. I've been busy finishing out my last week in my job before a week of vacation and start of new job. I'm finally free and I can't describe how happy I am. Thinking of going on vacation on Monday so we will see. Over the past couple days I've been printing different upgrades for my Ender 3 Pro. Here they are.

So the first thing I needed was a cable management solution to hold the LCD ribbon cable out of the way.


Here's what it looks like. Much cleaner and now the LCD ribbon is out of the way.


I didn't realize that the LCD board has a bell on it so.. With a little aggressive persuasion and some use of flush cutters... Here we have the LCD board cover. Doesn't look great but no one will ever know.

Here I replaced the screws with M3 8mm screws.


Why print a ribbon cover?

Well, I needed a place to store some tools as I don't have a lot of space around my printer. So I spend a total of 24 hours printing tool drawers.

This is the cage to hold the 2 drawers. Turns out I didn't take a separate pic of them.


Here's the drawers inside the cage. Notice it has rails to fit into the slots of your Ender 3 Pro. Also take a gander at that perfect slab of support. Came off in one piece and it was very satisfying.


Here's the final product in place.


Couple more shots.



As you can see I had to use a tad more aggressive persuasion to get it to fit into place properly. I ended up having to remove the Y axis tensioner and the LCD display prior to installation.

The timelapses!

I somehow did not save the printing of the actual drawers and my car adjusted the angle of the camera... So here they are.

I know they kinda suck this time thanks to my cat and forgetting to adjust for different size prints.

Thanks for reading/watching!

Let me know what you think!
