Replace cracked y-corner, fully assembled printer
Having never assembled anything more complicated than an IKEA shelf, I managed to crack the front-right y-corner. It's cracked at the top part, that's supposed to keep the smooth rod stable in the y-direction. The printer is fully assembled at this point.
You can see traces from my failed attempt to glue the crack closed.
I am at this moment holding the crack closed with a custom designed part and it seems to be doing the job for now.
But I'd like to fully replace the y-corner with a new 3d printed part. How can I do this? How extensively do I need to dissassemble the printer?
Also, what material should I use for the new part? Must it be ABS or is PLA ok too? I am asking because I have some orange PLA but no orange ABS.
Thanks, best regards!
Is this a good question?
