3D Printed Parts

All you need are these 2 parts:

  • ShieldTop.stl
  • ShieldBtm.stl

These parts were optimized to print on a Type A Machine series 1. Mimimum build volume is 305mm cubed. These parts can however be separated by modifying the CAD files.

Slicer Settings

You can use the settings below as a reference. The parts are oriented in the center of the bed and ready to print "as is". 

Custom support material is required for the handle overhangs.




2 shells

3 top/bottom shells

50mms print speed

10% infill

about 24 hours to print

Removing support material

The support material is easily removabile by hand. You'll want to smooth out the handle using sand paper or a filing tool. Use flush cutter to remove any excess material from the edges with over hang.

Modify Design

The parts were modeled in Autodesk 123D Design and available to modify. The file includes the original solids and sketches.


These parts have been printed in PLA but should print without any problems in other materials like bamboo and metal filaments.

Materials that require a heated bed, will require an enclosure to prevent the large parts from wrapping.
