Ender-3 ASSM (Angled Side Spool Mount)
Just want to share my own angled side spool mount :)
I've used before the "Ender-3 Side Spool Mount" which was working great but i've noticed that i need to lift up the z axis everytime i want to change the Spool because of the x-axis motor, which prevent to remove the Spool. As alternate, i've found the angled one but in my opinion i'ts with around 45° to strong angled in case of some reasons.
So i decided to make my own version. It's only slightly angled, just enough to have enough space to the x-axis motor. You will be able to remove the spool everytime you want and you got a smooth filament feeding without high angles - besides that, it's maximum easy to print :)
I've combined it with following spool holder:
if you want to use 608zz bearings you can try this remix:
For me, all inconsistent and/or under extrusion problems are completely gone with that setup.
- Standard - should work with all available standard sized spools (HATCHBOX ROLL IS TO BIG)
- Plus 10mm - just to be save its 10mm higher. I've used this ones on the Screens. RECOMMENDED!
- The 2 included stock nuts
- The 2 included stock screws
- 2 more bolts of M5x10mm should do it then.
Just print it with the flat bottom side to your bed - max overhang is 45%, so really easy to print! Use at least 30% infill for rigidity and it acts as "support" for the diagonal screw holes - simply more is better :) Furthermore i recommend to print with 4 perimeters because it makes the screw threads (especially the diagonals) really strong.
