3D Printable Upgrades for your Kingroon KP3S [Weekly Best Share 01]
Kingroon KP3S 3D printer is very popular aomng 3D printing community and already there's a bunch of 3d printed upgrades available on Thingiverse and elsewhere on the Internet. We picked one well upgraded Kingroon KP3S 3D printer from our user Mauro Riccardi in Kingroon official Facebook group.
KP3S Fan Guard 40mm
The first one is the fan cover here. There's a fair chance that loose bits of filament can fall in and jam the fan or foul the electronics. This one was a pretty simple print and I urge you to make that your very first mod.

Z-axis Stabilizer with 608 Bearing
This 3D printable Z-axis stabilizer uses a 608 bearing to provide further stability to the threaded rod from the top of the printer. While, if your threaded rod isn't going perfectly straight up and you add this top bearing, you can potentially bend the threaded rod even more.

Printed Base to Store PSU
Some customers might feel it takes up a little more space than is necessary with separt power bank of Kingroon KP3S 3D printer. This base solution design from SQUIRRELBRAIN not only to make your KP3S look cool, but also to minimize the storage space of your KP3S.

PETG filament is an ideal material for such a project, because of its durability. If you must, PLA would do (the parts are not mechanically stressed or subject to excessive heat), but we don’t recommend it.
35º Tilt LCD Faceplate
The mods adds a 35º tilt the flat LCD faceplate for your KP3S, making it easier to read and control.

Kingroon KP3S Heatbed Handle
The handle helps to move the heatbed of KP3S more easily and avoid heat injuries. The handle won't take any print space. It need to be assembled on the screws of the front heatbed knobs. Better to print with PETG for more solid use.
You may need to re-adjust the z-stop for the thickness of the glass bed changed.
