This simple mod is based on oryginal Ultimaker files.
It alters extruder lever with new one, that lets You lock it in open position. Simply press lever down to lock it or pull it up to releas it back!. No more pain in your finger, just lock the lever and use both hands to whatever You need.
It has also improved guiding, so it is easier to push filament up.
How does it work?
It's simple! All You need to do is to gently push lever down to vertical postion, it will lock it self automaticly. Than you can move Your filament freely. Whe You're ready, just push it back, it will move it self to horizontal position.
Materials and methods
All you need to do is to print all three files. Objects should be printed on their sides, like on pic 3. You will also need 3x M3/8mm screws to assembly the design. Some minor adjustments may be needed.
This mod alters original lever, so You will need to open extruder, disassembly old lever and use it to assembly new lever.
I do not take any responsibility for use of this design.
