Standalone Rack for the UM2 Spool Holder - version two

  • A more sturdy version of my first attempt (https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ultimaker2-spool-rack)

  • Print one basis and one backplate. The two parts can be simply plugged together.
    I printed the parts in PLA with 3 shells (1.2mm wall thickness) and 20% infill. It's very sturdy.

  • The 110mm wide basis is sufficient for normal filament spools up to 1kg.
    If you have a need for even more stability, you can choose the 130mm variant of the basis.

  • You can combine it with every spool holder that fits on the Ultimaker2. I use the "Low friction UM2 spoolholder" designed by IRobertI (https://www.youmagine.com/designs/low-friction-um2-spoolholder).

  • Update 12/2016: added an alternative (longer) version of the backplate for XL spools with 300mm diameter

That makes sense, will try!

Cura defines a build area of 223x223mm. It works, if you reduce the skirt distance until it fits (e.g. to 0.6mm for a 0.4mm nozzle) - or set "Build Plate adhesion type" to "None".

At least with the newest Cura (2.3.1) the build plate configuration I can't print it as it's 220mm wide and Cura says objects to not fit plate. Seems it's just a few mm.

Did that config change or do I need to hack the build plate config?
