<h1>Before you print!</h1> - You need the stand that came with your monitor in order for this print to work - Print at higher temperatures for PLA (210c-220c) <h1>Overview</h1> Hello! This is a VESA adapter for an Acer R240HY computer monitor. This may also fit other certain monitors in the Acer family, however this is the only Acer monitor that I own and I can't vouch for the support for the other monitors. I worked on this adapter through 3 or 4 revisions, this configuration holds up extremely well and does NOT require any other hardware besides the stand that the monitor came with (and a screw driver). I tried some other Acer vesa adapters on thingiverse however none of them seemed sturdy enough so I decided to design my own. This adapter also does not block any of your ports and rests completely behind the monitor. Happy printing! :) <h1>Printing Tips</h1> I recommend printing this with ABS as it will probably hold up better to the long term stress of holding the monitor, however PLA works just fine. If you use PLA I highly suggest using a minimum layer height of 0.2mm and using higher temperatures for better layer adhesion. You do not need supports, you may need rafts depending on if you have issues with your prints sticking too tightly to the bed. I would recommend using at least 10% infill. You should use higher infill if you are printing at lower temperatures. <h1>Mounting Instructions</h1> You also need the monitor stand that came with the monitor. Remove the mount piece from the stand (see pictures) with the screws that came with the built-in mount. Then transfer this mount and the screws to the VESA adapter. Do not screw in too tightly or you could cause your layers to separate especially if you are using PLA. The mount will be a tight fit in the VESA adapter, this is by design. This adapter is different from other Acer VESA adapters because it does not rely on the screws to hold the weight of the monitor, instead most of the weight of the monitor is held up just from the mounting pressure. I still recommend installing the mounting screws that came with the stand.

This is the first model I created independently, and I'm pretty happy with my work! I wouldn't call this a basing solution, but rather a basing addon or basing interface. For the past year, like many of us, I've been playing Gloomhaven with friends over video conference. I point a camera at the board and handle all of the monster movement, and the other players tell me what they're doing and I move them around. Our biggest issue was always that it was hard for players to tell what number the monsters were. This basing interface solves that problem by making the base large (10mm tall) with six numbers spaced around the base all in the lovely Gloomhaven Pirata font! I paint the bases black, then paint the numbers either white or yellow, depending on whether the monster is elite or normal. Finally, I superglue a 19mm steel disc into the recess in the top of the base. Doing all of this means that my miniatures just need to have a small magnet glued into the bottom side of the base! So when you need to place that normal or elite living corpse, you just take your magnetized living corpse and place it on top of the appropriate numbered base! When I play, I have 2 sets of all numbers 0-9 in white and 2 sets of all numbers 0-9 in yellow, and I've not had any issues with "running out of numbers." I find it to be an elegant system that addresses multiple problems I had in hosting remote games, and my fellow players LOVE it! It's worth noting that this is even helpful for players who don't want miniatures, but just want monster numbers to be more visible! You could easily take a drill and drill a hole in the bottom of the stock gloomhaven standee holders and glue in a small magnet. Then you could set those standees on top of this base and you numbers are immediately more recognizable! I hope you find the design helpful either directly or in providing you inspiration for your own work! <a href="http://www.buymeacoffee.com/jphelps">Want to support me?</a>
