This thing is a 50mm diameter spool holder for vertical mount on a BfB3000 (or BfB Touch hopefully).
Inspiration comes from Gael Langevin so I want to thank him for that.
Under the exact same slicing conditions, this derivative uses :
- much less plastic (28.58 cm3 instead of 49 cm3)
- and much less time to print (2h48mn instead of 5h18mn)
And I believe it should be pretty much as strong (but I haven't tried Gael's design).
The 2 parts will fit together using 2 screws (5mm in diameter).
I also made a derivative that will fit the Ultimaker3 (see "derivatives").
0.5mm layer thickness or less
I strongly recommend to print it with ABS to get strong parts.
The supports are only needed for the small plate (hook).
Fit the parts together using 2 screws (5mm in diameter) and corresponding washers (optional) and bolts (have a look at Gael's design for photos and tips).
The design was made under SketchUp with printing time and plastic filament saving in mind, without making compromise on usability and strength.
