A remix from an own remix - why that?
- This is rather a quick hack, with mediocre code quality, rather than a "remix", consider it an early access version.
- The usefulness of this item is limited, as it is used in conjunction with http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1792366 - as it's sort of specialised, I didn't want to modify the template.
I slapped on rod mounting brackets, added basements to the holder, and added the rod clamps, and pins to tentatively hold the parts together.
Purpose of this thing: rest the filament spool holder on the two rods which join the Z top brackets, above the print head, where it is positioned such that filement is fed straight into extruder, no force or lots of pulling required.
These holders won't fit on a printer without those horizontal rods.
Two parts sets are needed for one holder.
To improve: square footprint studs for rod clamps, print studs laid out horizontally instead of as towering cylinders, which should make them stronger while easy print. Or use glue, screws, whatever.
Rather than add-on rod clamps, integrating those into the holder foot, while keeping ease of printing in mind, should be carried out, thereby eliminating the bolts for attaching rod clamps. The padlike feet would then disappear.
