Starting this thread to keep things a bit more organized. Moving the new updated parts out of the version 2 thread.
So This part should not be this hard to make. I have made so many versions of the corner it is embarrassing, way harder than the whole center assembly. This was updated to help make a more square machine. The old one, if flexed, could be out of square with no way to adjust it. This is a take on the totem styles out there.
Not as sexy as the last design but this thing works so well. You barely have to put any tension on the screws to completely lock the conduit in place. So before you go all gorilla on the screws please don’t. No glue needed, but it couldn’t hurt as long as you use a screw as well.
Total 92.35g PLA @ 55% infill, 3 perimeters 2 bottom 3 top
old one “corner #2” weighs in at 102g
2 of each – top 2:06
2 of each – bottom 2:35
2 of each – lock 1.28
4 of these – spacer ? :15
Each corner looks to be about 2:20 faster to print
23.5mm “C”-Files —–I will put them on thingiverse soon.April 19, 2016 at 5:03 pm #11007
Nice!! Does the blue part in the center float? This new part will save some time and plastic over the old design.

Yup a floater.
I am printing a set now and am keeping track of print times. It looks like we will lose about 3mm in the work area over the corner block 2, bummer. But it works so much better it is worth it.
I also finally ran the new middle, seems pretty good, but we’ll get to that soon…April 20, 2016 at 7:57 am #11026
That looks like a nice solid design. 3mm seems like a very small price to pay for a better part.April 20, 2016 at 8:05 am #11027
Looks like you lose 2.5mm on the x but gain 2.5mm on the y…wash…
Seems to work great I’ll put up the stl’s in a bit.April 20, 2016 at 9:04 am #11030
Is there much of a weight difference?April 20, 2016 at 9:33 am #11032

ok so when can i print one er 4?April 20, 2016 at 1:21 pm #11043
If you have a 23.5mm machine I have linked the files up above, as soon as someone confirms the part I will make the other versions and put it on thingiverse.April 20, 2016 at 3:01 pm #11046
whats the difference between the regular file and the M files?
EDIT: nvmd they are mirrored…April 20, 2016 at 3:29 pm #11048
The right way letters go together and the mirrored letters together. The only way I could think to keep them organized, and differentiate between sizes, different letters.April 20, 2016 at 3:38 pm #11049
And it begins…

Sweet, can’t wait for a second opinion, thanks for being the first brave soul.April 20, 2016 at 4:06 pm #11052
np. its a good test for my mpcnc. I like the idea of a better calibrated machine. its just filament anyway, and im keeping a large family of chinese filament makers well fed….April 20, 2016 at 4:39 pm #11053
Nice! I can’t print that many parts at the same time with my printer.April 20, 2016 at 5:17 pm #11054
So… im using a capacitive level sensor for a z end stop. I usually keep my nozzle a little high, because I still don’t trust the printer I built, and I usually manually bring down the nozzle right before printing. I forgot to do that part tonight, so it’s back to start. but I do have some thin examples of the fit I’m getting on my conduit.
And a couple mini millennium falcons

Looks like a nice corner, I hadn’t finished printing the cornerblock2 so I’m going to try this.April 21, 2016 at 7:12 am #11061
Getting there! Used up the last of my free black pla that I got at MRRF. Back to the purple pla. Going to have to make a trip to microcenter this weekend. Almost out of filament!April 21, 2016 at 7:32 am #11062
Do either of you two ever print in ABS (I don’t and I hate it, really)? I have 3 rolls sitting here 1 I opened last week and 2 are brand new dark blue. Yours if you want to pay for shipping?
I placed a bad order in a hurry and returning them isn’t really an option.
Let me know if you want 1 or all of em, 2 might fit in a med flat rate 3 in the large.April 21, 2016 at 8:05 am #11063
Gotta do something about the acceleration settings on my MPCNC. i don’t know when you started printing yours but I know damn well that when I left the house this morning I had at least 3-5 more hours to go. and that would have been the same time you posted here.April 21, 2016 at 8:28 am #11064
What u want for it. i never got around to printing with abs since my printrbot does such a good job with pla. I’d like to see how it prints.April 21, 2016 at 8:55 am #11065
$13.45 gets you 2 rolls I think. $18 gets all 3 if they fit in the box.April 21, 2016 at 8:55 am #11066

The black parts took about 5 hours to print. The purple ones took 3ish. I’ve also completed the spacer parts and am printing the last parts now. If you want to see my Rostock printing…
Click on control, should get the webcam window there. Not printing with octoprint at the moment, but I leave it running for the webcam!April 21, 2016 at 12:03 pm #11070
One day I’ll build me a delta printer…. Nice setup you got there. im sure my lengthy print could be reduced if I could print without rafts. I was only able to print 2 corners at once but they took 15 hours. but at least they’ll be complete enough to test out once I get back homeApril 21, 2016 at 12:44 pm #11072
TaaDaa! Now I just have to install them. For some reason I’m having issues with overhangs. Might be printing too fast.
April 21, 2016 at 1:33 pm #11073
Parts fit really well!
But PLA is horrible…
Probably going to pick up some more petg this weekend, or tomorrow, since the job I’m doing is halfway there.April 21, 2016 at 1:34 pm #11074
Well aside from me printing too hot, I got one decent corner printed in 19 hours. but it’s square. I pulled out 50mm from each direction and then measured between each and got no deflection whatsoever. perfect 90 on the first try. I’m gonna go back to the printrbot for the next run, which should speed up per part time and give me a better print overall. I think it might be a good idea to also reprint the spacer at 100 percent infill to reduce the chance of it getting squashed and shrinking overtime. maybe even upscale the spacer and print it in semi-flex.

Wow! Your parts printed much better than mine!
