Mini Spool adapter for UM3 series

Recommended Posts

You can het the files at Youmagine and Thingiverse.

Designed for flexibility in use with a small version or a full version with filament threader. Designed in 3 Parts so that the spool rod can be printed together with holders or separately and then expoxied. By printing together, the spool rod goes inside the holders and creates a set of double walls for added strength rather than a 90° angle as one piece. You can also vary the infills as you see fit. All pivot points align for easy merging of models.

NOW I can get back to printing my transparent lamps! uggghhhh...so many things I am doing all at once. But, that is me at home.....

Maybe I am missing an obvious point, but why couldn't you continue to print your transparent lamps before?

IIRC he's using filament from Taulman that, mostly, come on tiny spools.

That's it. Just those tiny spools. Oddly, they are not all tiny and some of the prints are fragile. Taulman's T-Glase is stronger than PLA.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
