Spool Mount Meddley V2 (Bearing version) by ctheroux Mar 3, 2013

Description

This is the second revision of the spool mount I am using for my Prusa Mendel. In this version, I am no longer using the top parts of thingiverse.com/thing:32320. I have designed my own top parts with bearings. This version still uses the bottom part of thingiverse.com/thing:30742 .

Works perfectly with the left over smooth rod that I had laying about when i built my printer. Printed even with warping and it is still usable.

Instructions

Print two of each:
- Bearing Spool Holder Top Brackets
- Universal Spool Bushing
- Spool Vertical Mount (http://thingiverse.com/thing:30742)

You also need:
- 2 x threaded rods of 8 mm x 20 cm and
- 1 x threaded rod of 8 mm x 28 cm
- 2 x bearings 608ZZ (or a plastic model)
- 2 x 8mm washers and nuts (Wing nuts are better)

Sometimes, the spool tend to unwind itself when using "real" 608zz bearings. Instead, you can use plastic replacement (608zz Bearing Model)
