Printing Tips for 3DUPFitters Parts

Customers have the option of printing their own parts for our enclosures, which begs the question of what are the best settings?  The main consideration is strength, but you also want the parts to look as good as possible.   We recommend ABS or ASA, but PETG will also work if you don't already have an enclosure. 

Slicer Settings

 Parameter Settings
Filament Type ABS, ASA, or PETG
Layer Height .2mm
Infill 15%
Fill Pattern Gyroid or 3D Honeycomb
Perimeters 3
Solid Layers 4
Supports None

 

Part Orientation

Corner Connectors

The corner connectors need to be set so the wavy part is on the plate:

Mid-Panel Connectors

These should be set on their side so that the layers add rather than subtract from their strength.

 

Grommet Holders

 

Latch Mounts

These don't seem to be too sensitive to position.  Theoretically laying them flat would give the most strength but we usually just print them standing up and have never had a problem.
