1 Inch Project Feet for 1/4 Bolts

In this project we design four 1 inch diameter feet for use with common 1/4 Inch bolts to make adjustable feet for any DIY project you might have.  As we searched Thingiverse and really could not find anything like this.  Worth note, is the adjustable outside is 9/16th of inch while the inside is  slightly over sized of 1/4 inch to allow for epoxy (we recommend JB Weld). As epoxying the bolt head (on all sides lightly) before insertion will make the metal bolt part of the over all structure add greatly to the strength foot and while on the topic would print with at least a 50% in-fill.  Also notice we add support around the bolt head base for extra endurance.

Glass Bed Clamps on Tinkercad

In this episode we will look at building a set of hold down clamps for the QU-BD TwoUp 3D DIY Printer kit.  As you might recall we where having issues with the melamine bed so we switch to glass however the shaking of the when doing in-fills was ruining the prints so we designed a set of clamps to hold the glass in place firmly.  The glass bed is 11.5 inches long and 7 inches wide.  We left a little room length wise as we want to add thumb screws to the bed for leveling in the future.  In addition, the glass is +/- 0.16 inches in thickness and the clamps are 4 inches wide.
