Notes on Updating an Anycubic I3 Mega with TMC2208 drivers and a BLTouch (replaces the Z-min endstop)
I installed TMC2208 drivers and a BLTouch on an Anycubic I3 Mega, you can check out my notes here.
I designed a ground up rebuild of twoforcemember's awesome LC90 Flashlight Holder (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3094682) - using the same dimensions as the original model. The original works perfectly, however I have found that when I charge the light, I need a place to stow the USB cable and this is my attempt to do that. There is a version with and one without a small 4.2mm diameter passage for a USB cable to go through.
You can find it here.
I added a new section at the top for 3D Printer Tips. It is pretty basic stuff, but often problems can be fixed with checking some basic things that were either overlooked in assembly or not make clear in the manuals. It is definitely not complete and I will add to it as I find new things.
My desk uses a Uplift 900 adjustable base, which has a channel created by the desk supports, however it is not very useful for cable management since there is no base. This design tries to turn that channel into a cable management tray. There are 2 versions of this model, one is has a solid base and the other has holes which go through the model to allow for more options if cables need to be weaved into the tray. I originally intended to use double sided tape to hold the tray to the sides of the frame, but the final design uses six 12x3mm magnets per side, and one of the set screws to hold it at one end (this is where the slot is located in the model). There is also a smaller model which does not have a screw, but can hold eight 12x3mm magnets, however I mounted mine using only four per side. The model also has some cable guides, and zip tie or Velcro wrap points, intended to help wrangle the cables that need to be supported. I have not tidied up the cables since I plan to replace the desktop in the near future.
You can find it here.
There are 3 versions, one is a simple design with no real mounting options except sticky tape, another is designed for 3M Command Strips and the last is for using with screws. You can find it here.
Made this for a co-worker who was dealing with walk ups who did not practice any form of social distancing or wear a mask (or seemed to care). It's more polite than using the 6' poky pole and sends the same message.
These are just a couple signs which are designed to be printed. They help explain some of the ins and outs of wearing a mask, and also why, for folks that may not know.
This is a quick project I was working on to make it harder for the large 32oz bottles of hand sanitizer to walk away on their own. I have not had this problem with the ones I placed at my office, but if they were wall mounted outside it could be a problem. It is really a very limited use case, but I had the idea stuck in my head to make a mechanism like this, and wanted to try it out. A small coin (like a penny) is used to open it.
I don't have any pics of this in action since I don't have a need for this particular design at the moment. I also don't have any more 32oz bottles of hand sanitizer. I have one that is now nearly empty though :-)

I posted this to Thingiverse a couple weeks ago, but never posted it here, fixing that now. The spool has a ratchet which keeps it from spinning free, but with the addition of a rubber band it is not annoyingly loud. It will print with minimal supports - I think I had them set for 85% overhang and it worked out fine. The PLA I used for the green was pretty old and wet, I should have dried it first but was in a hurry and it shows.

The desk mount clamp is remixed from philbarrenger's awesome "Monster Mouth Headphone Holder - Clampable"
