For mounting up to 4 smal amounts of filament on one (Ultimaker) hinge.
I designed this, because the Ultimaker features in the feature dual extrusion.
If you have test materials from different suppliers like me, they alsways send yo a short sample of ~5m. The filament always ravels in my room like crazy, so I decited to invent a thing for this.
You can change the filament on the core to match the combinations you want.
With this thing you can mount four colours on your Ultimaker / Printer.
- 1 Core
- 2 Mids
- 6 Arms
- 6 Frames (optional)
Screw with ISO 7380 M3x12mm (Metric Stainless Button Head Socket Cap Screws - linsenkopf mit i6k) 3 arms on one Mid. The holes on the side of the Arms should face to the outside, the curve of the mid to the inside (like on the Picture)
Do the same with the other parts.
Stick the mids on the core, curved end first.
Turn the two minispools in opposit direction to check the friction.
mount the ring on the outside of each arm to give the spool a safe stand.
Print in 4 colours
â‚¬dit: Well, you can roll 2x 20 "small" meters on that spool.
