Robot Head TP Holder by jag Sep 22, 2011

Featured Thing!

Description

I saw a ceramic version of this somewhere a while ago. This is based on what I remember of that design.

This uses thingiverse.com/thing:8793 (syvwlch's awesome trapezoidal thread library)

It is tough. I just printed another one. The first one was much easier, I printed it with a .6 or .8 nozzle. Faster too. The one I just printed I did with a stock mk7 .4 nozzle. It was definitely better once I covered all the sides of the bot to keep the warm air in. It also seems that the blue abs from MBI needed a higher temperature to have good bonding. I ended up doing it at 232c as opposed to my usual 220 or 225.

I got some mad warping/cracking trying to print this. I printed it at a little bit slower than 20mm/sec

I guess when you run out of TP, it'll look like the droid has powered :P

Instructions

This is BIG.
The main part of it is 4 pieces and the axle is another 3.
I printed it at 15% fill and it weighs about 400g

Print the 4 pieces of the holder (#4 needs support) and glue them together (you may have to shave a bit off the lap joints to get them to line up perfectly)

Print the axle pieces and glue the two parts of the axle together.

Screw it to something with two #8 screws

Put the paper in, put the axle through and thread the nut on.
