Designed to clean the extruder tip. Basically a mount for a little wire brush and piece of a silicone spatula so you can keep the nozzle tip clean.

The TIF image has an exploded view and bill of materials.
The zip file contains the actual model parts. (Solidworks)
The STL is of the base. (The only part you really have to manufacture beyond cutting up a brush and a spatula.)


Mounts to the side of the "Smart Dump Box," which detects extrusion. (Smart Dump Box design coming.)

The start up procedure is as follows:

  1. Move nozzle above dump extrusion detector.
  2. Run extrusion motor until extruion is confirmed.
  3. Clean tip on the Tip Cleaner Assembly
  4. Proceed to print job.

Excellent! Looking forward to this "Dump box" thingie.. but is it possible to use this without that other accessory?

Sure! You could totally use this without the dump box. I have yet to build one as my printer is still in the design phase, but this is a common solution to the problem that exists in most forms of printing (2D or 3D).
