Minimalistic MK7 with Cleaning Brush by benmah Mar 25, 2013

Description

I have made this Minilistic MK7 derived from thingiverse.com/thing:15718.
I felt that I need to have a cleaning brush inserted to automatically clean the extruder pulley.

Just thought of using cheap art painting brush as its cheap and can be replace in just minutes by loosening the set screw. Plug it in and plug it out. Anyway it will take quite some time before you need to replace it.

I've thought about this idea but never tried implementing it because I figured that over time any brush you use would eventually curve and be less effective. What are you thinking of using for a brush?
