Description

This is a TPU printed seal to close off the panel gap on the left side the P1S/X1C glass door.

Designed to be used with my top panel gap cover.

Helps keep chamber temps a little warmer and slightly reduce fumes.

 

Please read below - there are 2 versions to choose from.


1 hour 24 minute print time.

 

Design Considerations:

  • Seal as much of the side gap as possible.
  • Not so tight that the TPU causes issues with open/closing the glass door.
  • Almost invisible with the door closed. Most of the part is hidden behind the glass panel's black border.

Print Settings:

  • The print settings are very important, so please use the included print profile w/ 0.4mm nozzle.
  • This part with thin walls likes to be printed slowly. I've adjusted most of the speeds to 30 mm/s.

There are 2 versions:

  1. Plate #1: Designed for 3M VHB tape ~1.0 - 1.1mm thickness. https://amzn.to/3R51M3k
  2. Plate #2: Designed for standard (thin) double-sided tape.

Note:

The print does not create a 100% perfect seal on the door, but it works well.

There are small gaps near the hinges, and I've designed it to minimize the amount the the TPU rubs against the plastic panels.

Installation:

Some photos will look slightly different than the actual printed part.

1. There are (3) slots for tape in the VHB tape version.

The thin double-sided tape version has (1) long slot.
You can pretty much ignore all these steps except #5 & #6.
2. Cut a strip of tape and fit into the slot. Make sure there's a 0.5 - 1.0mm gap.
If there's no gap, the printed seal could interfere with closing door all the way.

If you want to use less tape, you can cut shorter strips that aren't full-length.
Just make sure you adhere them to the far-left, middle, and far-right edges.
3. Cut the “overflow” to remove excess tape.
4. There should be a gap on all four sides.
5. Do a test fit before peeling off the tape backing.
The lip seen in this photo should go right up against the hinge hardware.
(but NOT jump over it)

Tape not sticking very well to the TPU?
Try scuffing up the TPU with a knife or sandpaper and clean with alcohol.

6. Peel off the tape backing 1 section at a time and install the printed part.
Make sure the thin section of the printed part that fits in the panel gap is flush to the glass. If there is a gap, the door will not close properly.

Fit perfectly… I used Gorilla tape only in small parts

i tried another one before which was too wide and was visible. this one is snug. unfortunately, I seem to have an issue where the lower third does not want to "slide in" nicely. i cannot fault the model - just hoping for some feedback on what to do here. the glass seems to sit proper. Any recommendations here? regardless - 5 stars for the great model. cannot rate properly as I've downloaded and sliced the file by myself.

What settings did you use when slicing yourself? Arachne, layer height, and line widths are pretty important. Every printer probably has a different panel gap so I'm wondering if that could also be an issue.

Replying to @br1acc :
0.2mm layer height, default 0.4mm width. But I don't think I have Arachne enabled in my Slicer for TPU. Need to check again. But yeah I assume the gaps are a tiny bit different on each printer. Like I said - love the files and awesome work. I got it to work as best as it can by simply disassembling the door and taping it as tight as possible to the glass so it gets pulled ever so slightly "inwards" around the corner of the glass. That seemed to help. Like I said - amazing model. PS: I would give 5 stars but Makerworld is still living in the stone-age as it won't let me rate when I download and slice myself. Here are my 5 stars :-) * * * * *

Printed good, installed without much trouble. I think the tolerance between my door and the outer panel prevent the seal from staying along the edge of the glass, but it’s still sealing against the panel.

Was able to get this to work perfectly first time compared to other options I tried. Print had no issues and installed well. Helps keep the heat in nicely.

Prints good, fitment was accurate. Mine needed a little shave on the bottom half curiously, possibly manufacturing twist. Works well with the top seal.
