Cleaning printing rubbish out the case

There isnt really a proper section for this one, but the intended benefit is

"cleaning" the machine...so.

This is a request to UMaker for a small change to their laser cutting program.

Rubbish Slot

Can you please add a slot (as shown) so that we can just sweep out the

accumulated bits of rubbish straight out into a dustpan. The slot needs to be

obviously on the same Z height as the top face of the lower panel inside.

 

Its currently really annoying to clean out the lower cavity of the case.

    Well yes I could use a vacuum cleaner, or I could use a stick with a brush on the end.

    One of them is free, takes 2 seconds to use, is small, uses no power, makes no noise and never clogs

    and the other......

    i usually sweep those tiny pieces out into the hole where the bottom panel meets the front panel. I also have a piece of paper kept on the bottom panel for all those bigger pieces (eg skirts, nozzle drools)

    I'm pretty sure Martijn (original designer and current maintainer of the design) wouldn't like a big ugly hole in the side like that.

    Vacuuming or turning your machine upside down does a pretty good job of cleaning it.

    Tape, use tape wrapped around your hand and presto, clean case.
