Full size tape dispenser
by TheNewHobbyist, published
This is definitely a work in progress at the moment.
The only problem I envisioned with scaling up jag's idea was the weight (or lack thereof) of the dispenser. So I made room for something we all have lying around, AA batteries.
The idea is that you insert 6 used AA batteries into the bottom of the dispenser to act as the sand or metal weights normally found in desktop tape dispensers. This (in theory) will keep it from flying across your desk when you reach for some tape.
Edit: Added some additional files. "Tape Dispenser_tapewheel_hollow.stl" can be printed and fitted with a wooden dowel to act as an axle. I also separated the tape dispenser body and original tape wheel into individual STLs for selective printing.
I'm still not totally sold on the current tape wheel design but I think the Dispenser body is pretty close to what I want.

Hah awesome! I kind of forgot about this model. Now that I have a printer large enough to print this out I need to make sure it all works!
i measured the rolls of tape that i had, and they are all 26mm inner diameter.i printed the wheel with a diameter of 25.90mm and it fit snug, but works. Awesome
