Cartridge caddy?


#1

Does anyone have a design for something to set opened, but currently not-in-use cartridges in to sort of contain the BITE valve dribble?


#3

Lay them on their sides with the vent and bit valve toward the top. Helpfully, Formlabs have made the labels readable in this orientation.


#4

They also designed it so that any drips from the bite valve land exactly on the electrical contacts, so be careful!


#5

Why not just put the orange cap thingie back when not in use?..


#6

I do currently, but that’s not foolproof and trickier to do than it ought to be. That’s why I asked if someone had designed something better.

Your welcome. I found these when I was looking to design something to stop drips. I moded mine to use shop spill towels instead of sponges. You may want to thicken the wall a bit as it is very thin and i had a few brake on the side walls… just haven’t got around to updating the design.
