Invader Toilet Paper Holder by FMMT666 Apr 27, 2014

Description

Our gamer's household required DLC in the bathroom...

I am not that happy with the two "turret shaped" fixtures, that hold the toilet roll bar in place. Looks a little stupid...

And it's greeeeen...

Thanks for the help, but I'm printing the 4-parts variant now with raft...This seems to work fine!
The blue 3M tape is waxed.
Retape your printing bed and wipe it with isopropyl alcohol.
Now, get ready for a completely new experience.Oh, and good luck with removing the part ;-)
How is it possible to print this without warping? I print with PLA, 30% infill, 0.2mm, 210 Celsius and plattform (with blue painters tape) not heated.

Instructions

Parts to Print
==========

Ideally you will only need these 4 parts:

1 x Invader -> "1-Part_Complete.stl"  
1 x Bar     -> "Bar.stl"  
2 x Turret  -> "Turret.stl"  

The two "turrets", including a bit of filament, will hold the toilet roll bar in place.

But because the Invader-part is quite large, I also created two more, sliced versions.

The size for each variant is:

1-Part... -> (264 x 216)mm  
2-Part... -> (132 x 216)mm, each part  
4-Part... ->  (108 x 96)mm, top parts  
4-Part... -> (132 x 120)mm, bottom parts  

If you choose to print the multiple parts Invader, make sure that the direction of the last layer is the same (e.g. rotate one of the parts or add more top thickness, etc...)

I printed the two-part Invader, but didn't care about this.
Depending on the lighting, you can clearly see the difference :-/

Putting it together
=============

I intentionally did not add any mounting holes because this was
meant to be fixed with double sided tape, Sugru, etc...

Beside the printed parts, you'll need two pieces of 3mm filament (~60mm each) and some glue.

Glue the Invader parts together (if you printed the multiple parts version).

Stick the filament into the "turret" and glue it (centered).
Notive that the bottom hole of the turret is a little larger. Insert the glue there!

I guess the rest should be self-explanatory...
