So, what do you do when you find yourself with the following:
A brand new roll of 3/4" x 1296" Staples Invisible Tape, Idle Hands, and new found love for Onshape!?!?
You design a Tape Dispenser of course
This design was inspired by this little beauty:
CNC Machined Tape Dispenser
I needed a tape dispenser, and I wanted something to express myself as well as promote OB, so this was born
They are hard to see if the photos, but this has both my logo and the OB logo laser etched in each side, and of course the OB Gear Logo cut into the Spindle Cap
I have provided DXF and STL files, if any one wants another file format to maybe CNC this, please let me know. You could print the entire build, but I think the acrylic is the better choice. If you want acrylic parts and do not have a laser cutter please feel free to contact me, I'd be happy to provide those parts. I can also customize the laser etched logos
OB 3mm spacer can be substituted for the printed spacers (Option-1 in BOM)
Printed parts will need to be tapped to M5, I chase each hole with a 4.5mm (.177") drill prior to tapping.
Assembly is straight forward and simple...have fun
Here is a link to a view only version of the Onshape file. A quick search in OS should allow you to find the actual assembly and make a copy it if you want.

An easy simple Tape Dispenser, spawned out of necessity, and shared for the fun of it...
