This carousel caddy was designed as a place to keep my Apple
Watch band collection. It is an improvement over my previous design wtih respect to both functionality and aesthetics. I designed using Tinkercad. I now have 4 different bands for my Apple Watch, with more to come, so I was in need of a way to store and organize them. It was inspired by my previous "Apple Watch Band Caddy" that I posted a while back but this, IMHO, is a more aesthetically pleasing and practical solution.
I printed this Thing in PLA on a FlashForge Creator Pro using Simplify 3D with the following settings:
. resolution .2mm with .4 nozzle and extrusion width
. bed temp 60C on blue painters tape, with glass print bed (your configuration may vary).
. extruder temp 220C
. top and bottom layers 3 each, perimeter shells 2
. infill pattern full honeycomb, external fill pattern rectilinear
. print speed 80 mms
. print time about 4 hours
Assembly is simple...
- Attach extender pillar to base pillar
- Attach axel to extender pillar
- Slip spinner onto axel (threaded side)
- Screw cap onto top of spinner (spinner should rotate freely when done)
If there are any problems with the fit, sand if too tight. If the joins of the 2 pillars or the bottom of the axel are too loose they can be glued together. Do not glue the spinner or the cap to the axel as this could disable the carousel action of the spinner.
