3D model description

This is a mount which allows an automated nozzle cleaning station for the Anet A8 plus. It uses the head of a cheap copper brush which simply slides into place.

If you have a later (v2 or later) version of Marlin, you can use the built-in G12 command to run a clean. If not, you can easily enough create a few lines of GCODE to integrate into your prints to perform the cleaning cycle.

The brushes used were these from AliExpress. You just need to cut off most of the handle, leaving some to more easily replace the brush

See my blog for more details

3D printing settings

This was printed in PET-G with 0.125 layer height and 25% infill. It should be printed on its side for maximum strength and is likely to need support.

I am very much an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to designing. My designs tend to have two things in common

1) They serve a purpose. I like to design functional objects which have a real-world use. 3D printing for art is fine, but it's its real-world application which will take the technology forward
2) Wherever possible I design to be easy to print and try to eschew supports or complex printing; modifying the design where necessary and possible to achieve this.
