Ultimaker mount for Heavy Duty Spool by fluxline Oct 31, 2012

Description

This is a mounting for the Ultimaker to fit the Heavy duty printable filament spool, thing thingiverse.com/thing:10219. It attaches to the back, left, top frame bolt. It also has a printed thread cap to make it easy to change spools. The spacer not only allows the spool to sit away from the frame but you can also just print a different size for other spool types, there is also a shorter version to mount 2 spools.

02.11.12: Updated mount to fit rod better
09.11.12: Added a holder for filamant shipped with spools, there is also a longer rod to hold these fat spools, both plastic and cardboard
16.12.12: Some have issues with reel hitting motor, made it longer by 50mm to increase clearance. Would be helpful if someone could confirm this fixes the problem. Listed as Fluxline_Spool_mount_V2.stl
02.04.13: Some had issues with some filament spools hitting the extruder. I have added a new, V3 spool mount that shifts the rod more the side giving about as much clearance as you can have.

Instructions

  • Print the parts: ---- http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:10219 or http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:12175 (not actually tested this one).
    ---- The mount is printed on its side with a bit of support.

  • bolt the rod to the back of the mount, using countersink screw or bolt is best.
  • slide spacer over rod
  • remove back, left top bolt of frame, slide hook of mount over frame aligning holes and replace existing screw with 20mm. Best to carve out a bit of countersink on the printed mount depending on what type of bolt you replace it with.
  • Put on a spool with filament and secure with cap.
Which spool are you using? the heavy duty one clears the motor on the existing feeder ny centimeters.
Hey i printed out your mont and the spool seems to big! It is running into my extruder. did you do anything to fix that?
