Stand alone Kitchen/Workshop granule Dispenser with screw top lid for Tea, Coffee, Rice etc. in two hopper sizes: 620ml or 1000ml, with 3 removable cup types (Tap, Teaspoon, Tablespoon).
Leg height is enough for a large cup or small jug to sit below the tap/cup when pouring.
Not suitable for liquids.
You will need:
1. PLA or PLA+ Filament (other filament types e.g. PETG may also be suitable but not tested with this model).
2. 0.8mm thick clear acrylic for plastic view window (620ml hopper: 12mm x 95mm, 1000ml hopper: 12mm x 125mm for 1000ml hopper).
3. Optional - small 8mm dia./width adhesive silicone bumpers to prevent the Dispenser from moving around.
Plastic view window
Material: 0.8mm thick clear acrylic.
Dimensions: 620ml hopper: 12mm x 95mm, 1000ml hopper: 12mm x 125mm.
Optional - Feet
Purchase 8mm adhesive silicone bumpers and attach then to the bottom of the hopper legs to prevent the dispenser from moving around.
Once all parts have been printed, support material removed, and cleaned of debris:
1. Turn the hopper upside down.
2. Insert desired cup type (e.g. tap) into the cup hole, so the flange is flush with the gap at the end of the cup hole.
3. Carefully push a cup retainer ring into the gap - it should lock into place around the cup so that the cup can rotate 360 degrees without coming out. If you want to swap to another cup, first use the Cup retainer remover to help push out the retainer ring.
4. Optional - attach silicone bumpers to the bottom of the hopper legs.
5. Stand the hopper on its legs.
6. Cut out the plastic view window to size (see above).
7. Insert the plastic view window into the slot in the top of hopper - make sure to push the plastic past the bottom of the viewing area, otherwise granules will escape.
8. If storing food granules e.g. coffee, make sure inside of the hopper and the cups are sanitised prior to use.
9. Screw the lid onto the hopper. Tip: If the lid is tight/jams, use a paper towel to smear a small amount of vegetable oil onto the thread.
