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

Featured Thing!

Description

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!

Instructions

I printed on a Rep 2 in PLA at

0.3mm
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

7mm
11mm
13mm
51mm
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!
Okay but how does it work?
Um, print it, screw it to the the wall, and put things on it?There are two screw holes that are chamfered to take a flat head screw (#10 would do) at each end of the sine wave. Or use double stick tape. Whatever floats your boat.

The Rep 2 7.3 firmware added a pause a Z height in mm. I do have to reset it for each new layer.

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!
Wonderful! Enjoy!
