a few accessories to improve the M2

Post by psd » Tue May 24, 2016 7:28 pm

Hello,
I have made 3 accessories for the M2
a filament holder and cleaner (updated file today with improved version!)

a SD card holder

a glasses clip (for all of us older folk)

Oh yeah - that SD card holder is a great idea - I'm always dropping them behind the desk. :D

I use your cleaner/oiler. Very nice design. I even trimmed the M2 Specific bits and have just the cleaner portion as a generic cleaner on another printer. :)

Can you please explain how to use the cleaner? what do you use for the cleaning insert?

Thanks!

It looks like just a piece of sponge that's been cut in half. You put a few drops of oil to soften the sponge a bit.

yes, i just cut down 2 pieces of ordinary sponge, just enough to close over the filament and wipe it free of dust.
I have read others use some canoba oil, I might try that.
Let me know if you like the design.

Thanks! will check it out. I might want to make a version for the dual feed as well (other side of the machine). Do you have design files in addition to the STL?
