We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Unless you own a fancy tape dispenser; you only have two options with tape. Either fold the end over and discard that piece when you need a new length. Or you can orbit the tape repeatedly, using eyes and fingernails to locate and pry up the tape end. I give you option three, the Tape Tap. Adhere the tape end to this tap and save yourself some trouble.
Use SketchUp to push/pull to your desired tape width. Ideally the tape tap will be a little bit wider than the tape you are tapping.
Print and clean.
Tap your tape. Lay the roll on it's side with the thumb handle facing up.
Post Print Note - No issues printing, it was fast and flat. I really like the look of this original model.
Happy Printing ~ GearsOfWow
