Flat mounting clip for Velleman K8200 3D printer

Here is just a quick follow up on my previous frame clip ( The middle section fits snugly into the aluminium profile only if there is no flat cable or other wires running along, that’s why I have created another version of the clip, this time with flat middle piece:

And here is the result:

The rest of the clip remains the same. It contains exact same rectangular holes on both sides and the pin designed previously will work as well. However, a countersunk M3 or M4 bolt needs to be used:

  1. Very useful thing. I did the same, but simpler, without sections (only triangle shapes). By the way, don't you do to add a cooler to keep motherboard from overheating?

  2. The highest temperature I have recorded was about 90C (on the X-Y controllers) - so way below the limit. And this is with increased current on the stepper motors. It gets up to this temperature after few minutes and then stays constant (doesn't matter if I print for 10 minutes or 10 hours).

  3. Hi sorry to bother you, but I need some help in getting my k8200 3D printer to work, At the moment, I have version 1.6.1 of Repetier Host, which doesn't seem to want to load k8200BOARDCOVER.stl, amongst other problems. Do you have any suggestions where I could go to get some help, please?

    1. Hi Viv,
      What error are you getting?
      The version you are using is quite old, not sure if the Slic3r is already configured in it. (Slic3r slices the object and translates it into the X-Y-Z movements).
      I'd suggest downloading the latest Repetier-Host ( Currently it is 2.0.5 for Windows/Linux and has the slicing function preconfigured.
      Please share more details if the issue persists.
