Disguised as a wall mounted spool holder 3D Printing Guardian watches over the whole 3D printing process. He immediately made our lives easier as now we can replace a spool in seconds. It is especially handy when changing filament for multicolor 3D printing. The idea was to design something functional but with an interesting theme to it. That’s how our 3D Printing Guardian was born.

NB! Mace screw system is fragile - please do NOT overtighten it when screwing the mace parts together.

Anyone else having trouble converting the face to gcode? I've tried using multiple slicers and they all behave the same way, keeps generating unexpected layers that don't match the model. Do you print it on its back so the flat side is against the bed, or upright like it shows in the picture? Thanks!

Hi, thank you for your comment. There is a handy option in Simplify3D called "Place Surface on Bed" but not all slicers have it. So we just fixed the position of the "Face". Please please do not hesitate to ask any questions.

Works much better now, thank you!

Excellent design that not only looks cool it is cool!

Thank you very much for sharing your make with us. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we enjoy it!

If it helps anyone, I used Slic3r and the back of the head is not flat. It has a 2.4 mm variance. I sliced this much off the back of the head to make it lay flat on the bed. Prior I tried to fix it in Netfabb, but was unsuccessful.

Can't wait to see when it is ready! :)

Face is printed, now working on the arms. This is so awesome!!!

The back of the head does not appear to be flat. The preview of slic3r shows it starts printing the upper left parts and then slow progresses to the other areas. Fear is that this is not set up properly to adhere to a print bed. Suggestions?

In simplify3d we used "Place surface on bed" option. Don't know how it is called in Slic3r.
