MK3 EXTERNAL LCD MOUNT ASSEMBLY GUIDE
(included in Universal 3D Printer Enclosure kit)
x2 10-pin extension cables
***TURN YOUR MK3 OFF AND UNPLUG THE PRINTER TO ENSURE YOU DO NOT CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE ELECTRONICS***
We’ve included 2 extension cords to allow you to mount the LCD screen of the PRUSA MK3/MK3S externally. Begin by removing the LCD by removing these 4 bolts.
Next, unplug the 2 cords from these outlets. The LCD screen should now be free from the printer. You can also test the extension wires at this point if you’d like.
Print the files in the LCD ADAPTER folder. We’ve provided 2 separate versions. LCD ADAPTER REMOVABLE is designed to mount the LCD screen without the need for permanent fixation by using a mount that anchors beneath the weight of the enclosure. Additionally, the edge of your enclosure MUST be flush with the edge of your table as this mount must overhang to function properly.
Another option is the LCD ADAPTER FIXED version which is designed to screw directly into the Lack table with the included screws (or any other table that you don’t mind drilling a hole into).
LCD ADAPTER REMOVABLE INSTRUCTIONS
Add the LCD screen to the two plates using the 4 bolts removed from the printer previously as shown below. Make sure the square nuts didn’t fall out when removing the LCD from the Prusa.
Position your Prusa inside the enclosure if you haven’t done so. Pull the enclosure slightly off the edge of the table in front of you and run the cords BENEATH the plexiglass (there should be about a 2mm gap at the bottom of the enclosure due to the rubber pads installed during the build. Then, slide your LCD into place and reposition your enclosure at the edge of your table. Details are shown below.
BLUE – mount positioned beneath the plexiglass
YELLOW - the lip hanging down improves stability
GREEN - extension cables running below plexiglass between the mounting pieces
Your mount should look similar to the one shown below. Be careful when removing the plexiglass from the table!
LCD ADAPTER FIXED INSTRUCTIONS
These instructions are similar to those above. Begin by using the same 4 bolts to secure the LCD to the mounting plate.
Add the mounting plate to the Lack or other table using the included screws (you may need to drill start holes with an electric drill). You may consider putting a hole in the bottom of the Lack to run the cords under the bottom of the enclosure instead of under the front door frame if you would like a “cleaner” look with this setup.
Your final assembly should look similar to the image below.
