Geeetech Aluminium Prusa i3 clone, first “upgrades”

A couple of things niggled me during testing that were simple to fix so I thought I’d make a note of them here…

First, the USB connector (where the controller board connects to a PC) means that the supplied USB cable sticks out over the print bed. I bought a USB cable with a right angle “B” connector so the cable now exits vertically, keeping it away from the print area.

And moving the printer around during testing I found it a pain to keep disconnecting the PSU as it plugs straight into the controller board with a square four-way connector similar to those used on PC motherboards which is quite awkward to get at with all the other cabling. I added an extension to this cable which means I can split it from the power supply at the extension connector, leaving the one on the controller board alone.
