Piece of plexglass with rounded corners at the top. Superglued to the inside to make a tall lip (or 2 smooth topped bolts.) Seems the easiest/elegant way if im understanding the simple problem correctly.

tinkercad sucks for something i'm trying to help a youth pastor out with. They have 300 chairs with these offering racks in the seat back, and the envelopes and papers are so tall when slid in the rack that they fall backwards. People sliding behind the chairs bump into the papers and they fall out onto the floor. I'm looking for a solution that will hold the envelopes up or a free piece of software I can use to mock something up.

I don't have a need for anything this big, but that is kinda tempting. $1,165.50 for a 600x600x600.
I was looking at their 400x400x400. There is a fully upgraded version of the 400 model on amazon for $699, but it has a $170 coupon on amazon right now. I wish I knew how long the coupon was good for so I knew how long I had to decide.

The 400 is a corexy, and the 600 is a cartesian.

If you don't need the size IMO don't get the big one. Having a very hard time believing the big one will reach a bed temp of 85C like they claim. It only has a 600W PSU and that is a ridiculously large bed.

My corexy has had a filament jam for like 6 months. But because I was an idiot I didn't design the carriage to be opened easily. So I quit using it. So redesigning the X/Y completely. Using parts I bought for the tool changer. Will buy better stuff for it later. Making some progress. :hmm:

I should get a corexy just because I don't understand how they work. I get that it uses the two steppers to move the 2 axis, but it seems like black magic that it can move one without the other.

This came up on my feed



And I immediately went looking for a 3D print version of it which of course does exist. As usual I have a slightly different vision of how it should be done and therefor will spend the next month designing my own that isn't any better. :p

I (think) I've had a bunch of heat creep issues trying to print PLA, the Stealthburner toolhead is supposed to be way better at getting air across the heatsink :hmm:
I've had a bunch of prints just randomly jam, mostly it was pretty fast so I thought it was just heat creep, but this one was like 2 hours in or something

Is it using some sort of quiet fan to cool the heatsink? TBH never got the point of making a printer super quiet. Motors, sure. But fans are needed. I've never had heat creep ever.
