Front facing filament bracket for Mendel90

To be used with a spool holder like this, http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:215192 Provides 3 spots to secure the end of a PTFE tube so you can have 3 spools in easy rotation. Created in Openscad. Parametric and easy to resize for other frames.

Description

As with the kit supplied filament spool, wrap tape around the end of your PTFE tube and insert upwards through the hole. I also added a piece of electricians tape over the edge of the dibond so that the bracket makes a tight fit and doesn't move.

After using this for a few weeks, I found that the PTFE liked to slip down onto the lead screw, so I added a piece that covers the right hand rod and lead screw and provides a nice surface for the PTFE tube to run along. No more problems.
