TrayJet Printed Part Peeler by mortinus Dec 17, 2012


Designed for quick / easy removal of printed parts from the makerbot print tray!

The tools that they (makerbot) provide are frankly not good enough. The squeegee thing just..doesn't work! I have more than once had to re-align my printer due to excess force required to break free the parts. This tool is modeled after a chisel or putty knife. The "hammer" is designed to give apply slight directly force exactly where it's needed.

I would recommend sanding the chisel tip
Added the chisel tool as stand-alone download. Please don't hold me responsible if you use your metal hammer and break anything!

100% Infill for everything.
.27 layer height

110 heated bed temp
220 extruder head temp

AFter re-assembling the hammer/head multiple times it completely split the hammer down the middle. I will be updating the file to reduce the overall size of the join to allow for "tolerance stack" on the excess side of the printer (cause.)

**Fixed Head Uploaded**
Removed material from around thejoin cut-out which will prevent the hammer-handle from spreading the joint and splitting.
