UM3X NFC cover material

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM3X NFC cover material

One more obscure question.  The 'new to me' UM3X and its NFC cover parted ways at some point.  I know I can buy one, but what fun would that be for a maker?  I have the STEP file from Github and Fusion allows me to flatten this in sheet metal mode, so I can cut a new one on the waterjet.


My question today is, what material is this?  The github reference is greek to me.  I am thinking likely powder coated steel.  Anyone with specifics?

    for clarification: are you talking about the cable cover that sits outside the back panel of the printer, just under the spool holder? I think it's ordinary  painted sheet metal, I don't think it's powder coated. But that's just a guess.
