UP! mini Spool Shaft for RepRaper filament

The original spool shaft for UP! mini is too short and wide to hold RepRapist filament. So I have to design a shaft my own in order to restore the peace.

And….hell, while the filaments from RapRaper has a very good quality, the printed support materials are almost impossible to remove! I blame the printer for having a fixed and non-customizable maximum print temperature at 270.

Nice shaft!

And for the fixed temperature...did you see my post earlier this week to overcome the limitation?

Thanks guys :)
I wanted to mod the heater, but i afraid it will void my warranty. I'll take an advise from you once the warranty is over ;)

Dont know if it voids the warantee in any way but its truly reverseble. In takes less than ten seconds to remove the mod and have it restored to its original state without a trace......
