3D model description

This is a mount for a BL Touch on an A8 Plus. I had found a number of alternative methods, but all looked a little flimsy with a large cantilever. This is

  • Easy to print
  • Easy to mount
  • Strong
  • Integrated cable management

I have produced two versions: one which is designed to sit on top of my X axis belt mount and the other which is designed for a stock machine.

See my blog for more information

3D printing settings

I used PET-G for this. It gives a good degree of flex for the top mount, although PLA may well be fine too. If not, the device can be slid on anyway.

I used 0.2 spacing and 10% infill.

Print on its side and it needs support only in the "jaws". Everything else is designed to not need them.

I am very much an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to designing. My designs tend to have two things in common

1) They serve a purpose. I like to design functional objects which have a real-world use. 3D printing for art is fine, but it's its real-world application which will take the technology forward
2) Wherever possible I design to be easy to print and try to eschew supports or complex printing; modifying the design where necessary and possible to achieve this.
