UP Mini lid mod

Post by jeeplvr » Wed Jun 12, 2013 12:42 am

With the standard routing of the fillament for the UP Mini, I experienced some breakage of the fillament due to the bad angle that the plastic top cover puts on the fillament. I modded my top cover to allow a natural path for the the fillament. The square inch measurement of the hole now is much less than the way the cover was. Everything fits nicely. The rear flat cover hinges much like the original and is two piece with keyed dimples to make it easier to get in and out. The adapter piece for the front cover is also two piece and epoxied together. Doing it this way eliminated the chance of warpage. It isnt the best clean up job on the parts but I am still learning the process.
I have the stl files if anyone wants them. It is also on thingiverse under "jeeplvr2000"
