I see 2 STL files, one with Ender in the name and one without. The one without looks to be slightly newer. Is there a difference between these, or is the second one just a later revision of the first?

Very useful design, i love that there is even a place for the USB-Adapter.
I moved it as far to the right as possible, fearing that when printing a very big design the cable and bowden tube may get in conflict with the hexkeys and ruin the print.
Another thing is, though i installed the horizontal bar in the right orientation with the cutouts pointing up, the screws are not aligned with the bar but stand a little bit out. There is a little gap between the Toolholder and the bar but the functionality is still given.

Thank you aledube99,

In my fumbling around I found out Cura was included with my printer. Now I have to get my laptop in running shape.

So I'm new to this process.

I think I've loaded files from Thingiverse to my SD card. I can see it when it's plugged into my tablet, but when I transfer to my printer, I can't see any of the files.

Do I need an intermediary program to convert to g-code?

Yes. I suggest Cura. It is free and there is a bunch of tutorial for it. Good luck!!

No need to disassemble cross 2020 bar. The T-Nuts simply go down through rail slot, then twist to lock.

Beautiful model. Most useful print ever!

Nice Model - Helps keep things handy. I made another variant that also holds my hex drivers.

thx for making this available.

Wow your print looks so good! What Slicer/settings are you using out of interest?

please check video for complete setting.

Yessss, Catia rocks !!!!

Great tool holder for all V-Slot machines!
you should use that as a keyword

PS I just printd this in PETG and it is legit!

I've found this spot to be the most comfortable for holding the cutter pliers. However the little rod broke off. Still holds the pliers fine though. Perhaps you can make it a small hook instead for strength. As for where the pliers were meant to go, I found it too unstable and so I'm using it to hold my glass cutter.
