Description

Z-Axis filament holder for PrintrBot Simple Metal, with added support on the other side for IKEA LEDBERG LED strip-light set.

This project consists of 4 parts (STL files included for the first 3):

1. The Z-Axis arm has a 3mm hole at the end to support a screw, to secure the rod*

2. The LED holder supports all 3 LED strips

3. Customised LED connector (not sold by IKEA or supplied)  - Details on assembly here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:649051

4. * Happy hunting for a 40cm rod :)  Pick one about 15 to 20mm diameter but if too wide, you can trim down the section that is held by the Z-Axis arm (15mm wide) and LED holder (20mm wide).

Assembly:

1. Orient the rod

2. Mount rod and screw in (I used a wood screw for the tree branch I chose)

3. Mount LED strips into LED holder

4. Connect with LED connectors

5. Mount LED unit into other end of rod

6. Use cable twists/ ties to hold power wire along rod

Materials and methods

- IKEA LEDBERG LED strip-light set
- One small screw (~3mm diameter or thereabouts)
- A tree branch (seriously) or rod about 40cm long and 15mm to 20mm diameter, but larger is fine, just file/ cut down the parts joining the holder
- Short length of cable twist
