Makebase MKS PI and TS-35 Case

These are cases for the MKS PI and the TS-35 display running Klipper from MakerBase. These cases let you mount the MKS PI and the TS-35 separately on your 3D Printer.

Support material is not required to print the 4 required parts. An infill of 20% is recommended.

You’ll need the following hardware to assemble it:

– Two M5 x 10 mm screws
– Two M5 nuts
– Four or more M5 x 10 mm screws and M5 T-nuts
– Four M3 x 15 mm screws
– Four M2.5 x 10 mm screws
– Optionally some 9 mm flatten shrink tubing to protect the flat cable
– Optionally a 30 mm x 8 mm fan

Some of the screws can be replaced with some glue or may be substituted. Do not overtighten the screws.

Make sure that the connector of the screen is on your left when the display is set at its final position. This will ensure that the content of the display is upright.

The four printed parts should be assembled in this order:

1) Install one of the two holder named ScreenHorizontalHolder and ScreenVerticalHolder on the flat side of the backplate of the screen bezel (ScreenBackPlate). Use two M5 x 10 mm screws and two M5 nuts. Make sure that the holder is centered.

2) Put the TS-35 screen in the bezel named ScreenBezelNoBrassInserts. Install the bezel on the ScreenBackPlate. Pass the end of the flat cable in the slot on the side of the bezel. I suggest putting the flat cable into a flatten shrink tubing to protect it. Handle the flat cable with care. It is fragile. Use four M3 x 15 mm screws to attach the screen bezel to its back plate. It can then be mounted on the printer using two M5 x 10 mm screws and T-nuts.

3) Attach the main body of the MKS PI case (CPUBoardMainBody) using some M5 x 10 mm screws along with some M5 T-nuts on the printer frame. The mounting holes are on the bottom of the main body of the case.

4) Connect the power cable to the MKS PI.

5) Insert the MKS PI into the main body. Connect the screen to the MKS PI.

6) Attach the plate (CPUBoardTopPlate) on the main body using four M2.5 x 10 mm screws.
