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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
