Jumbo or 3/4" by 1500 inch rolls do not fit in this dispenser. Scotch catalog number 810.

Printed with PLA 50% infill, left hand tab snapped right away trying to insert the roll of tape. Retried with PET-G, 100% infill, gave the tab a little push to see if it was any more solid and it too snapped at the slightest pressure. Going to give up and go to a different design. May work for some but not for me.

Snapped immediately after trying to place a roll.. (UP! mini)
Went for the https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:14531 which works perfectly.
Be warned ;)

+1 :( too fragile alas.

Printing with Simple Metal using 100% and 200 degrees PLA and the tabs snapped right away, could you make them a little wider? Thanks

First one i printed with 20% infill the tabs snapped. I printed again with 100% infill with 5 degree temp increase and good to go. PLA 215 degress ultimaker 2.

Great thing to make but with me also one of the roll supports snapped almost immediatly just by touching it. Are you consider making the support all the way round? I think it would be alot more sturdy.

What an awesome idea! :)

This was the first "big print" I did on my printrbot. Came out great but the roll support snapped almost immediately. Don't know if I should have waited for it to cool a little more maybe. Or a printer setting. Was printing in ABS. A little CA glue fixed it, of course. Really cool.

This thing is awesome! works so well. should have printed at 100% fill though.

 Glad you liked it.  Cool picture.  Happy wrapping and Merry Christmas!

The teeth look pretty good at 0.33mm also. I printed in PLA and added some CA glue to coat the clips in hopes that it will help strengthen them. We'll see how it goes once it's dry! :) Cool design, and great timing. Thanks!

Glad you liked it.  Your print looks good.  Let me know how the clips perform in PLA.  Happy taping!

Turns out it was a bit too small for my 1500 inch Scotch tape "jumbo" rolls. :/ But, it worked fine for my 1000 inch store brand stuff. I warmed the clips a bit before I put the roll on to help prevent it from snapping, and it popped right on. Thanks again -- this will be a great sample to bring to demos!
