Sorry, I liked the idea of this. It looked more substantial than the other mount. However, it snapped at the thinest part when I was removing the supports.

File format: obj... I'm not sure if this should be here at all, i do expect to see at one STL file in there...

Just printed this, and came out ok, except the top nut slot is half blocked.

do you mean where the print mounts to the rail, or where the Ender 3 filament arm secures to the mount itself?

Hi, the top nut hole for the ender 3 filament arm, top once fitted.

I will see if I can make this a bit larger if my computer will allow. I'm having to send it in this week (given it is only a month old unfortunately) and there is no telling how long it will take to get back so I am rushing to get things finished up.

I didn't use a nut, I just threaded a large bolt in and it has held great.

I will get back to you and let you know.

thank you!

There appears to be an error in the file. I have tried Slic3r and Cura, both have problems. Tinkercad will not import the file, and Netfabb hangs on it. Notice the lines in the left side, these run through the whole part, and block the nut hole, as indicated on the right.

For what it's worth, I can confirm this anomaly still appears in the print I just made with Cura. (Partial obstruction in that backing nut slot.)

A couple minutes with the Dremel, however, and I'm quite happy with part. This position for the spool is perfect for my workspace.

Had big issues with this file... the attached pic will show how IdeaMaker interpreted the model. Just wish I'd previewed the code before sending it to the printer.
