Replacement Tap Handle for when you're in a jam - Th3 B^ck-Up.
Printed on an Ultimaker 2 Extended + | Sliced with Cura slicing software
Update 12 January 2018: model now solid (no multiple shells) due to some slicing software not being able to handle multiple shells.
No Supports / Print Bed Adhesion
TAP HANDLE :
Standard Fast Print : 60mm/s - Top/Bottom Speed 30mm/s - Travel Speed 150mm/s - Initial Layer Speed 30mm/s
In-Fill Density : 35% In-Fill Pattern : Grid
(play around with the In-Fill densitys, ! chose to print a 35% in-fill for two reasons 1) Time constraints. 2) The washers in the tap were still good and it didn't require much force to turn the water off. A denser in-fill should give you a stronger print.)
Build Plate Temp: 60Deg/C | printed in ColorFabb PLA / PLH @212Deg/C | 0.4mm Nozzle
HOT/COLD CAPS : I recommend printing the Hot and Cold Caps with a 0.25mm Nozzle at a suitable speed for that nozzle.
Boolean Operands were employed in the creation of this model.
