A simple tool holder that sits in the back left corner of your Rep2. It holds my caliper and all 4 hex wrenches that come with the Rep2. I would have made one to sit on the outside of the "windows" but my caliper is too tall.
I will eventually make a "window" tool holder to hold my feeler gauge, brush, and other assorted tools I use regularly on my Rep2.
It's a simple print but I have the "shaft" that gets pushed down into the printer as a pretty tight fit to keep it snug and level. I also tried to make it use very little plastic, not that it's using much but why not conserve!
There's 2 parts, the small cube (1.2cm tall) is to keep the caliper vertical when it's resting. Whether you print it or not is up to you. Just glue it on.
I printed it at 10% fill and .30mm just to get it to print quick. It's rock solid and works well for my needs. I may abandon it eventually for a "window" tool holder but I was itching to create something so here it is.
