Necklace/Tie/Keychain Rack by brackett27 Jul 29, 2013

Featured Thing!


I recently bought some new jewelry but realized I do not want to store it in the jewelry box. So I decided to design a printable rack to hang on the wall. Of course it had to be colorful. I also wanted to try out the new pause at Z feature on my printer so I added a relief sine wave to the rack. The pins are about 1.5in each so they would likely support a tie as well. Enjoy!

My bad. From the online docs for the Rep 2 --

"Z Pause Height allows you to pause your print at a set height. When you select this option, you will see two additional settings: Z Position and Pause Active. To set the pause height, scroll to Z Position, press the M button, and use the arrows to increase the pause height in millimeters. Press the M again to confirm the height. Scroll to Pause Active and use the M button to toggle the setting ON and OFF. When Pause Active is set to ON, a Z height pause will be triggered, even if the Z Position is set to 0.

During a Z height pause, you will be taken to the Change Filament submenu. Press the left arrow to return to the active build menu and resume a print."


Thank you for the response, but I was asking about how does "pause-at-z" work.

Indeed, having to keep setting new pauses is a bit of a pain, but it's still great to see MBI adopting such an extremely useful feature! Thank you for the great news, a I'm looking forward to publishing a backlog of designs that use this feature!

I printed on a Rep 2 in PLA at

4 shells
15% fill

If you are going to try and hang something heavier on it you might want to increase the density or shell count some.

To do the colors I paused at

How did you do "pause at Z"? Are you using sailfish?

To my knowledge, if you're using a replicator 1/2, the only way to pause-at-z is to use sailfish. I may be incorrect though, as I stopped tracking updates to the official firmware.

But no matter the printer/firmware, I highly recommend getting into using pause-at-z! Not only is it useful for changing colors (and thus adding strong detail/visibility options), but it's incredibly useful for inserting objects into prints!

I've been searching for a tie rack exactly like this, and was going to design one for myself tonight. This is perfect, thank you very much for sharing!
