i got some issue with 18.80 Z
not sure its my 3d printer.. ( always print perfect) i wanna print 12 of that.. PLA 15% ;)

I have 5 of these lying around I want to get rid off for free. I live in Holland, pm me if interested.

Hi - Thanks for your kind comments, glad you like it - for a pegboard version, we can do that, let me know the hole spacing you need, would you use a pegboard hook to hang it? For the size, it is quite large, the footprint for the wall-facing part is 106x60mm, the part was built in mm so check that when you import. If you orientate with the wall facing section on your build plate it should build without the need for support. Cheers, Paul.

I could also probably slide a piece of wood behind the pegboard and secure that strip of wood, and then just screw your mounts through the board into the wood. But I think a lot of people would really like the option to just pop these onto a pegboard!

OK, let me know your hole size & spacing & I'll have a think, cheers, Paul

Thanks for the quick reply!

I happened to have some at my office. The holes are a hair under 1" on center. I know I keep throwing things at you too, but I see some reel sizes are thicker than others somewhat hiding the exposed part of your reel holder. It would be cool to have different files for different length pegs!

Great thanks! Ill have to measure my pegboard as home depot does not list the hole spacing, just the size of the holes. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Pegboard-White-Panel-Common-3-16-in-x-4-ft-x-8-ft-Actual-0-155-in-x-47-7-in-x-95-7-in-486140/202189722
I would rather not have to use pegboard hooks to hang it. Would be much better to have the actual pegs and hooks built onto the back of your design. Although I just realized that this would end up needing supports to print.

The ultimate would be a separate mounting plate that you could post different options to mount. i.e. a plate with the holes like you have already, then a plate with pegs that sitck out for the peg board. Then the mounting plate would have to clip onto the reel holder some how.

Hey there,
I like these a lot. I have a few questions for you. Would you be able to whip up a version that goes on pegboard? Also, this opens in RepG and looks like it takes up almost the whole build volume, should this be scaled at all?

Thanks for the THING!

Hello Pauly!!!!
I downloaded the file and print. Was awesome on the wall of my Office.
Thank you very much!
I've also following this way.

Hi...on the Markerbot 2X I printed on 0.3 layers with 15% infill with ABS. For PLA similar should be OK I guess. Enjoy, ours work really well.....just need to print one every time we get a new colour :-)

Hey what is your print settings? (serry just seen how to attach)
They look amazing cheers for the upload
