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
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.
