The ultimate Felix upgrade…

Post by satoer » Sat Nov 10, 2012 12:34 am

Yes people, after thousand hours of calculation, recalculation, several redesigns. I’ve managed to create ultimate upgrade for the Felix printer…

With extreme proud I present the… Tweezers bracket!

Okay, okay… fun aside, maybe not the greatest upgrade, but a damn handy one. The sharp tweezers (which came with my Felix-kit) that I use every time, was always laying around. So I created a small screw-on bracket. I’ve attached the model, so you can download, print and screw it to your Felix. Now you never have to search for the tweezers again while the Felix is smearing some oozing all over your project haha.

[edit]I’ve made 2 versions. One version which is an instant press fit, and one version you can screw onto the frame with the supplied frame-nuts in the kit.

A "must have" upgrade :)

I like the simplicity.

Maybe it would even be possible to design a version that is press-fit instead of screw-on?

Amazing that nobody came up with this, yet. Oh, wait a minute... :D

About the first thing I printed, too!

Great tip to create an instant press-fit version. I’ve updated the first post. I didn’t want to create a complete toolset bracket that clutters up the printer. Just the tweezers you need with production.
