Video Overview

  1. You can download the files and print them on your own 3D Printer. Find the files in our GitHub repository: https://github.com/BrownDogGadgets/3D-Pr... We have files will work with the 20m and 5m rolls of  1/4" wide Maker Tape and the 5m rolls of our 1/8" wide Maker Tape.
    • Hey! We updated the large (20m) version to add a "foot" you can put in place if you still see your tape roll coming unraveled. Totally optional, but some people like it.

    • The foot attaches just like the lock, and you can pivot it to the center to place a tape roll on, then swing it back over the roll. Easy Peasey!

  2. We also created a version for the small (5m) rolls of our 1/8" Maker Tape. While 1/4" wide Maker Tape is great for paper circuits, 1/8" Maker Tape is generally used as part of our Crazy Circuits brick-based electronics system.

  3. Every 3D printer is a little different! If your parts don't fit together easily here are a few things to try.

    • Is the peg too tight? You can try to sand it down a little. You want a snug fit but not so tight it cannot freely pivot after inserted.

    • You can also try printing it at slightly more or less than 100% scale if the fit isn't quite right.
