Tool Holder and LED light mounts

Postby BillDempsey » Thu Mar 24, 2016 1:01 pm

I've included pictures below of a tool holder I designed to mount on the right side of my Type A Machines Series 1 Pro. It should also work on the 2014 model. The tool holder has spots for scrapers, palette knives, hex drivers, pliers, snips, and even a can of hairspray. I also included pictures of mounts I made to put under cabinet LED lights over both sides of the build surface. This lets me monitor the camera of the printer on my iPad without the lights in the room being on.

My setup so far:

Tool holder slides on the acrylic plate on the right side of the machine.

Next, I plan to swap out the fans, design a new spool holder, and design a new filament guide for the top of the extruder.

Beautiful. Very close to something that I had in mind.
