3D model description

These legs were designed to complement the curves found on the Cricut. 3D printed layer lines running parallel to the table on other designs--my own included--have always been an eyesore to me, and in this design I opted to intentionally incorporate them into the aesthetic. The legs grow out from two "trunks" and branch out to grasp removeable attachments on the bottom of your machine, using the layer lines to hearken back to the organic texture and form of wood grain rather than the cold mechanical feel of straight lines.

As for how the legs attach to the machine, the legs have four feet that use the original screws to replace the Cricut's rubber feet. These feet slot into mated keyways at the top of the legs, allowing the machine to be picked up and carried with the legs attached while permitting the legs to be simply slid off when needed. The original rubber feet simply friction-fit into holes at the bottom of the legs to continue to provide traction and reduce vibrations.

3D printing settings

You'll need to print one of each leg, in addition to 4 of the attachments.
I've printed these legs laying on the flat side with 5 perimeters, and 5 top/bottom layers.
20% infill is more than enough to support the top layers as they are put down.
Support materials are optional on the legs depending on your printer's bridging capabilities, but needed on the attachments.
Depending on your printer, you may need to scale up or down the size of the attachment pieces for a more snug or loose fit in the legs.

I'm quite sorry to have not replied! I knew that I had responded to someone but didn't realize that was a message and not a comment. I do have an STL for Maker legs that I haven't posted here yet, and if you've gotten these legs to adapt to use for a Maker please do let me know.

I would like to buy the file for Cricut maker, will they work for Cricut maker?

Do these fit only the cricut exployer 2? Or do they fit on the makers as well?
