Description

AMS Lite Overhead Swivel Mount. If you have your printers on shelves like I do, this gets the AMS Lite out of the way. Swivels to make filament loading easier, but locks into grooves as you swivel so your AMS doesn't go turning round and round as you print. Uses your existing AMS Lite screws to attach the AMS Lite to the mount. Requires 2x ¼"-20 screws and 2x ¼"-20 nuts. The screw length is determined by your shelf thickness. My shelf is only 3/8" thick, and I used black 1" cap screws countersunk into the shelf so the shelf above would stay nice and flat.

The third plate is a template that you can print to know where to drill the holes in your shelf for the mount.

 

I have created a PTFE Tube Organizer to help with keeping your PTFE Tubes from getting tangled when you use this, or any other mod that mounts your AMS Lite overhead.

Once I mounted my AMS Lites overhead the cables were too short, so I ordered this:

and an extra cable from Bambu:
