IKEA LAK shelf 3d Printer Filament Holder.By Cults on February 25, 2019 20:29
I wanted to suspend the reel above my creator pro as it's in an alcove and getting to the back is a pain. Designed in Fusion 360 this lifts the reel away from the bracket but not too high.
-This is based on a 200mm wide reel, with an internal width of max 70mm sat on the pole.
-The pole is thin as I have very varied reel diameters in the centre. (just 20mm across)
Added a 2nd model with a screw hole in the top of the bracket of 3mm... Which may be better if supported but the roughness of the circle should provide thread anyhow without support.
-Personally, I just used the 1st one and drilled 3mm bit down from top. Saved the support hassle for a tiny hole lol.
-Oh and two things.. I could have designed an end cap but actually prefer a clothes peg as I can simply clamp closer or looser for tension and its seconds to take off and less stress on the holder. Old skool but works lol.
Secondly there is no filet/chamfer on the clamp on the inside to give the clamp maximum surface area against the shelf. I have printed many hours with 1KG and micro spools with no faults.
