Overview

Solder Dispenser

In this project, we'll design and 3D print a custom enclosure for storing and dispensing solder. This cute little enclosure looks like Adabot and can be used as a solder dispenser or tape dispenser. There's plenty of room in the enclosure to store two spools of solder or several rolls of small tape.

The spools can rotate independently, allowing you to have different solder spools sizes to quickly swap between different diameters.
