RMU-Mk3 Model Variations
The RMU-Mk3 filament buffer comes in two model variations. The Mod-S and Mod-T.
The design of the Mod-S was to allow for left side or under desk loading of filament from the spool.
The Mod-T variant was designed to allow for easy top feeding. Our studies have shown that top feeding is more popular and the Mod-T is specifically designed to give simple yet reliable top feeding and management of the filament.
When you buy the RMU-Mk3 Filament Buffer STL files to print yourself, you will get the plans to print either model so you choose which one to use.
RMU-Mk3 Filament Buffer Mod-T
The RMU-MK3 Mod-T shown here is designed to feed from above.
In the image above you can see the complete kit of parts that make the BF001 in the Mod-T variant.
The right side pass through adaptors feed filament into the buffer while the left side feed out the Prusa MMU.
RMU-Mk3 Filament Buffer Mod-S
The RMU-MK3 Mod-S shown here is designed to feed from the left or below.
In the image above you can see the complete kit of parts that make the BF001 in the Mod-S variant.
Note the layout of the pass through adaptors. The lower adaptors allow easy feeding from desk mounted or under desk spools of filament.
