This month’s print idea was submitted on our forum by Carogsnow, who asked us to print a rotating spice rack. Thanks Carogsnow! Submit your 3D print ideas below. If we choose yours, you will win 5 free spools of Inland Filament.
We found the print file for the Spice Rack on Thingiverse.com, submitted by ILikon.
You can find the files here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5083091/files
Printer: Ender 3 V2
Filament Used: Inland Marble PLA, 1.75MM
Print Time: 6-11 hours
Software: Creality Slicer
The entire print consists of only 3 pieces. We first printed a spice rack in Inland Light Blue PLA, and then printed a second rack in Inland Marble PLA.
The first print was printed at 10% Infill. The top of the rack where the spices are held was too weak and didn’t have enough support.
Additionally, the spaces where the spices are supposed to fit were a bit too small, so I enlarged the second print by 13%.
I printed the second in Marble at 15% Infill and it looked great.
To put the spice rack together, you lay down the base.
After adding the weight of the spices, the rack doesn’t rotate as smoothly as when it is empty. So, I added a small washer in between the base and the spice holder.
Place the spice holder on top of the base with the washer.
Screw on the top piece to hold the rack together.
And there you have it!

Entries start today and run till 11:59 PM ET, September 12, 2022, and afterward, we'll be selecting one print to make for next month and awarding the suggester five Inland Filaments of their choice! See below for official rules.
"Pencil Extruder" to still be able to use pencils as they get shorter
Here's a idea for your next 3D print: a GPU Support that's height adjustable, or a fixed height model that you show readers how-to scale it to fit.
so i never knew i needed something like this in my life. man the things you can build just by 3d printing it
Oh wait a moment, that's pretty cool! I have wayyyyy too many spices at home that I constantly find myself rifling through. This might help me bring some organization to my cabinet. Might.
I love the way the Marble filament comes out, super smooth and clean.
Looks great and very handy!
