I just got my TAZ 5 this week and am about to build an enclosure. In the assessment of what I need access to I decided:
- SD card slot
- power switch
- print bed
- spool holder
Which got me thinking, why not move the spool holder to the left side of the printer? I don’t see anybody doing this, probably folks are moving away from the holder. I’m not there yet, so just wanted to make the printer slightly more compact. Things to consider for moving:
- electronics are on the left
- front frame has the LCD so putting spool there blocks SD card slot
- could mount on back frame towards top
- filament feeder might need something to mount to
I think that with the spool mount moved and something for the filament feeder to mount to it could work.
Your thoughts on this are greatly appreciated!
