MOST Delta filament as guide.JPG This page was part of an MTU course MSE4777 OA and MSE4777 OB/MSE5777/EE4777/EE5777: Open-source 3-D printing

Please leave comments using the discussion tab. The course runs in the Fall semester. It is not open edit.



Upgraded Spool Holder (MOST Delta: Athena)

This upgraded spool holder is made to be fully compatible with the current wire holding mount hardware included with the Athena Printer. The edges are rounded instead of square for better rolling/sliding on the surface. Also the larger radius on the upgraded holder is stronger than the original spool holder.

Design and Printing

Design

OpenSCAD was utilized for all modeling operations.

Printing

The stiffness of the component is driven by the infill percentage. Adjust as necessary to achieve your desired characteristics.

  • Print Parameters Utilized
    • Layer Thickness: 0.2mm
    • Skin Thickness: 1.0mm
    • Top/Bottom Thickness: 0.5mm
    • Temperature: 180C
    • Speed: 80mm/s (60mm/s outer contour)
    • Flow: 100%
    • Infill: 50%

Installation
