Love hurts and I love the new UM2+ feeder. But I decided that my poor finger shall not pain no more and quickly designed this little wedge. It is to be inserted below the lever that releases the pressure on the filament.
Print with two shells and 100% infill (very quick print).
Btw. please note the expertly designed hole on the bottom where a small, round 3x3mm neodym magnet can be inserted so the wedge snaps to metallic parts on the printer. The magnet should go all the way in but I printed the wedge with 3 shells and the hole is too tight... oh well. :)
Materials and methods
3x3 round neodym magnet (optional)
- Printed on:
- Ultimaker 2+
- Also made it with 100% infill and used Polymakers Polymax PLA. Had some problems with warping at first but when I finally got that fixed and the print turned out great and works very well. Had a diffrent magnet laying around (a 7x3.2 with a 3 mm hole) so changed the hole to fitt that. Fast print!
- Nice and simple design that works well. Great that you have that sat file uploaded so that I could make some fast changes to the magnet hole to fitt the magnet I had laying around.
Very nice to use. I happened to have one of those magnets and squeezed it in with pliers, no glue required.
@UltiArjan: That's why I have included the small hole for a neodym magnet. If you add 4 washers to your y stepper (on the left side of the printer), then you'd have a small magnetic area to attach the wedge/magnet to :)
- Printed on:
- Ultimaker - The Ultimaker 2
- To my surprise it's actually working very well :) Think I need to make one with a larger handle as this thing is so small I'm gonna loose it fore sure...
Love it, way better than the over engineered widget I was looking to make. Gonna print this right now.
