Timetoprint00 shared this project on Thingiverse!

I find that on the FlashForge NEW Creator Pro (received November-2016) that parts with large surface areas are difficult to remove from the bed plate. For example the first time I printed out the orange bird house (thingi1351023), I did so on a glass plate, that I clipped to the FlashForge Bed. Because this bird house has such a large contact surface area to the bed, I found it to be very difficult to remove. In the end the glass plate shattered, and in fear of cutting my fingers from the shards of glass, I simply threw the bird house into the garbage.

To remedy, I decided to use plexi-glass, so that I could flex the plate to create a separation between it and the 3d printed object. Locally (at HD) thin plexi-glass can be purchased in 8” x 10” sheets for approximately $4 USD. These sheet are approximately 2mm thick. Then to avoid having to cut the plexi-glass to size, I designed the bed extensions to accommodate the 8 x 10 plexi-glass sheet.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
