I have the original Paper Towel Holder by
areeve20 printed, but the snap in is broken.
This holder can not break.
Insert roll and push side panel.
If the roll is empty, simply buckling and remove.


I printed with the following parameters:
0.36 Layer
1 Perimeter
40% Infill

Piece three is missing from the download package. I'd love to print this, please help!

You will have to download the 3rd piece (TowelTowelHolderRMX_Part3.stl) manually.

Everything is still there...

AlmaPrinters is referring to when you click the "Download All Files", the ZIP file only contains "TowelTowelHolderRMX_Part1.stl","TowelTowelHolderRMX_Part2.stl" and is missing "TowelTowelHolderRMX_Part3.stl". The 3rd piece can be manually downloaded separately.

Nice remix!

How do you prevent the buckling piece from working its way out while the roll is spinning?

What part of the snap broke on my design, was it the little parts that flex? I was wondering if PLA would be too brittle for that amount of flex. I would like to use your feedback to make some improvements. - Thanks

Thank you.
I have reduced the diameter of the circle 0.1 mm and polished with sand paper. It is only clamped.
Yes, the flexible part ist broken.
PLA is probably too stiff.
