This design orients the material spool correctly on the rear side of the solidoodle printer. It's a replacement for the part that orients the spool 90 degrees to the printer and can cause feeding problems for the abs material.


Print it, take the pvc rod off and glue it in place, let cure for about a day. Make sure to use either abs glue or acetone. Then screw it into the back of your solidoodle with the same hex screws it came with.

This thing is pretty big. What kind of fill do you recommend for it?

Is this the ideal orientation. new to fdm style building. Seems would delaminate in the xy axis (z up). I was thinking of designing the very same thing for my self and then here it is. Rock on Thingiverse (and jkkoplin)

I would agree with you, however the ribs add a massive amount of torsional rigidity to the design and make it far stronger.

I would recommend making the bottom flat all the way across. Otherwise only the edges of the ribs will be on the printbed, and the rest of the bottom will need to be printed onto support.
