Description

With this handy little tool you can clean your carbon rods even when the lid of your bambulab printer is closed.

Just put Isopropyl alcohol on the sponges, snap it to your carbon rod and move it back and forth a few times till they are shiny again.

 

Postprocessing

For the sponges you can use a normal kitchen sponge (be careful to not use the abrasive ones). Cut two pieces roughly about 10x20x20mm and press them into the spongeholder.

For the pullback mechanism you can either print the provided spring in TPU, or use small hair rubberbands. The spring also works in PETG but looses its strength from time to time.

 

 

More info about cleaning the carbon rods can be found in the Bambulab Wiki

Not often I've gone for a print-in-place, this time I'm impressed. The design is flawless, thank you for sharing it. I apologise for soiling it with tree supports, old habits die hard lol. But they came off quick and easy, leaving a beautiful tool. Cheers.

PETG seems to work great.

Thx for the posting. With my petg version I tried, the spring lost its strength after pulling it about 50 times. Maybe yours is a slightly better filament brand 😉

I had a bit of difficulty getting the slider to work. I think it had attached itself a little too tightly. Having said that, I’m a complete novice and perhaps it was me that didn’t have something quite right in the settings. I used standard PLA and default settings. Thank you for making the file and sharing it.

Hi, thx for sharing. This issue could have different reasons: - bad first layer - Filament not calibrated (overextrusion) - first layer to near at the build plate - filament bad quality / diameter not constant But since you got it to work everythings fine 😉

printed great! I opted for PETG on the spring, and I think it will work fine.

Not sure if I'm missing something, but when I printed from the app mine does not have the catches for the rubber band. Is it the file or something with my printer?

Hi, looks like you maybe had adhesion problems and the knobs have been removed by the nozzle during the print.

very handy print that makes it so easy to clean the rods without taking the glass lid off the printer.
