So I made something else for my wonderful little printer. Well I made an existing thing better I should say, it’s a remix of another part, but it’s really a new part altogether now. It’s a stabilizer bar for the Z and X axis of the Mp Select Mini but only if you’ve upgraded the bed which I’ve done.
Here’s some more pics of the parts and it installed:
I very much liked the original stabilizer bar design but I didn’t need space for LEDs and I found the bar a bit too thin and flexible for my liking so I decided to beef it up a bit as I didn’t fell it really added any real support.
I thickened up the bar first but then decided to do the same with the small bracket as well to make it match.
It was labeled as an x-axis stabilizer bar but now it’s more for both Z and X but you need to use other parts to be printed and bought, like LM6UU bearings.
Please note this bar can really only be printed on the 4DM Brutus bed and it has to be positioned diagonally on the bed, but it fits fine that way.
You can find it here over on Thingiverse, the STL files to print and more details: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2507095
So I revised my combo filament filter and guide for the MP Select Mini, it now has a guide ring for the filament instead of just a semi-circle with the filament just sitting there.

So one of the great things about the Monoprice MP Select Mini is the fact that it’s easily upgradeable and you can just print all of the parts on the printer itself. So I’ve got a collection of them in this post, some are still in use and some aren’t anymore as I’ve found better or upgraded to a metal part actually.

Here’s another of my designs, it’s a filament guide and cleaner for the Monoprice MP Select Mini 3D printer. I liked the idea of a filament guide and like the cleaner but there wasn’t a combo so I created one. I’ve actually re-did this and will be posted the revision shortly.

So I picked up some very nice 3D Pens for a very low price, pricing error I think, but I made stands for them, works well..
Yeah I just had to print it….
These are nice and sturdy, but you need to print them with 100% infill to make them solid to make sure they can hold weight. These are the best ones I’ve come across so far.
