I liked  my CAB-2 remote holder but always felt it needed to be a little more robust as the CAB-2 is pretty hefty so finally found time to check that out.

Came up with a design similar to the MTH I made and it sure is much more robust.

First comes the design on CAD, we want this to fit like a glove and yet be very strong and at the same time have access to all the various buttons and sliders. (why not)

ok looks good let's print it, test it, and yes it does fit like a glove and is very robust

the old vs redesign and on the layout it looks great.

This was actually a fun project.

I think the Prusas hold tighter tolerances than the Creality machines. Or at least my Creality machine. I have a little bit of investigating to do because my bed won't stay level. We'll see. I got the modified part on the printer right now. I couldn't get the press fit in when I woke up today so I opened it up a bit.

I really like this project though @sidehack. I would love to mount a holder on my workbench in the basement to keep the remote safe.

Bill the MK3 runs a quick check at the start and self levels, I never have to level or do calibrations, and one of the things I like the most is the print comes right of when done and if not I remove the plate a and give it a bend, no print coming loose when printing and no sticking when done. I can remember using a plastic hammer on some (that's got to be good for the printer) that I tested out before I purchased this one.

@sidehack I have not. I might have made my own though. I'll try to remember to post when I get to testing. I took the replacement surface and put aluminum foil on the adhesive side. So now I should be able to bend the surface away from my part once I unclip the surface from the build plate.

@A. Wells which machine do you have? I actually like the surface that came with my CR10S Pro. I tried PEI for a minute but switched back to stock.
