3D model description

On many occasions I have printed parts that have a large surface area. Getting these parts off the print table can be a bear. Even once you can get something to get under the edge of the part it takes a lot of hand force to get the part to let go. What usually happens is the printer slides around on the table surface taking away a lot of the mechanical advantage; almost scooted the printer off the table a couple times. The printer has rubber feet on the corners but they don'™t grip the table top. So, I created these little corners that are screwed down to the table. These corners capture the printer feet/corners to eliminate this problem.

I used #8 X 3/4 inch wood screws to mount the printer corners. You will need 12 screws. But most any size flat head screw could be used. Along with the STL file, I have included the native file (SolidWorks) and an IGS version so you can modify the part if you want. IE: make sides taller or change screw hole size. It takes about 20 minutes to print on "œlow" print settings. Print four, one for each corner. Enjoy, Reamo

Printing this part is a good example of "œhard to get off the table". I added a chamfer on one edge of the part to make it somewhat easier to remove from the print table.
