Our gamer's household required DLC in the bathroom...

I am not that happy with the two "turret shaped" fixtures, that hold the toilet roll bar in place. Looks a little stupid...

And it's greeeeen...


Parts to Print

Ideally you will only need these 4 parts:

1 x Invader -> "1-Part_Complete.stl"  
1 x Bar     -> "Bar.stl"  
2 x Turret  -> "Turret.stl"  

The two "turrets", including a bit of filament, will hold the toilet roll bar in place.

But because the Invader-part is quite large, I also created two more, sliced versions.

The size for each variant is:

1-Part... -> (264 x 216)mm  
2-Part... -> (132 x 216)mm, each part  
4-Part... ->  (108 x 96)mm, top parts  
4-Part... -> (132 x 120)mm, bottom parts  

If you choose to print the multiple parts Invader, make sure that the direction of the last layer is the same (e.g. rotate one of the parts or add more top thickness, etc...)

I printed the two-part Invader, but didn't care about this.
Depending on the lighting, you can clearly see the difference :-/

Putting it together

I intentionally did not add any mounting holes because this was
meant to be fixed with double sided tape, Sugru, etc...

Beside the printed parts, you'll need two pieces of 3mm filament (~60mm each) and some glue.

Glue the Invader parts together (if you printed the multiple parts version).

Stick the filament into the "turret" and glue it (centered).
Notive that the bottom hole of the turret is a little larger. Insert the glue there!

I guess the rest should be self-explanatory...

The types of plastic sheets for DIY printers are awesome, like BuildTack or PEI, I personally use PEI, 12"12" and cut the excess of because my bed is rectangular. But you can get bot of amazon for a decent and well worth price. Use sharp spatula and it pretty much pops right off if it cools off to room temp. Cool Design here I you could use a un-popped long rivet and just paint the head Black if you don't like the Green part made in the file.

How is it possible to print this without warping? I print with PLA, 30% infill, 0.2mm, 210 Celsius and plattform (with blue painters tape) not heated.

The blue 3M tape is waxed.
Retape your printing bed and wipe it with isopropyl alcohol.
Now, get ready for a completely new experience.
Oh, and good luck with removing the part ;-)

Thanks for the help, but I'm printing the 4-parts variant now with raft...This seems to work fine!
