UMO dust cover

Recommended Posts

So many ideas, so little time... but again, I´m in modifying my UMO (also as a consequence from my laser hack I´m doing...)

recently I thougt of some kind of "laser protection" to avoid looking directly into the beam...

then, I had the cance to take a look onto an industrial FMD printer and a mill and - tadaa...

I designed 2 brackets and some kind of covering (which is not printed up to now) to partially close my UMO top.

Material used:

- 2 brackets for the sliders

- 2 printed beams for stiffening

- IKEA Schottis (http://www.ikea.com/at/de/catalog/products/20242282/)

- 4-pc cover frame (to be done - not designed/printed)

Here some pictures, files will follow as soon I finished and verified the design at youmagine... :-)

Honestly... Not tested up to now but I assume that it is silent as ut is some kind of fabric and I put some kind of scotch tape onto the frame to increase slip.

For full cover it is unfortunately too less space but this was my first intention...

Cross fingers, first test tomorrow evening when printing the top cover frame.

TESTED !!!!

works like a charm - absolutely silent and worth.

Unfortunately the print of the 4-section cover went wrong and I had to scrap it, but I will post the files soon... :-)

Updated/replaced the dust cover components to allow full closure of the top as suggested by https://www.youmagine.com/users/ccw1984.

For this version you´ll need a printhead cover to mount the accordeon cover to the head.

I mounted it a few days ago and it keeps some of the heat inside the UMO. Further it´s silent because of the fabric of the IKEA Schottis.

have fun :smile:
