  • Printer Cover, and Quick Release Filament Spool Mount

    I designed a printer cover for my Fokoos Odin-5 F3. It is used as a dust cover when printer is not in user.

    I first decided filament spool could be easily removed, and stored on bed plate, but quickly found not convenient in use. I designed simple clips for quick release. The long side of clips goes on spool side. Clips are easy to install, 4mm pan head screws, sunk in from bottom, so not to interfere with extrusion, nuts on top. To attach short finger of extrusion inserted in rail at 45 degree angle, spool mount rotated to vertical, long fingers grab extrusion bottom. To release, long fingers pulled away from extrusion as spool mount is rotated away.

    If I have this right, the clips are to hold the spool holder to the frame, but allow for quick removal.

      Exactly! Only takes a second or two. Clips might be used for other mount applications on 2020 V rails.

          Thank you. I tried to keep it simple. I surprised myself when it worked the first time. Irv has helped me much with his great youtube videos.

          3D printing is fun.
