3D printed tamper stand
I *needed* a tamper stand for my La Pav Pro....
With the PF in place:
And storage for the tamper:
I'm a little surprised that we don't see many more 3D printed thingies as everyone has a mate with a printer.
Love this effort though, nice work Gonzo.
Yeah that's cool, nice work Gonzo
I recently discovered my local libraries have 3d printers and will print stuff very cheap. Have a search on thingiverse, there's a bewildering amount of models there. I printed portafilter holder forks for my mazzer I found the for about $3.
Nice Gonzo, look really good.
did you design and print this? Be interest to know the cost to print it.
Been looking to get a portafilter funnel printed too. Found this one on thingverse in case helps
I run Ubuntu Linux and I used FreeCad to design it. The resulting mesh looks like:

You see the hole in the PF handle slot? I put that there to enable me to tap a M4 thread for an adjusting screw to support the PF handle. I wasn't confident that I could measure the required height for the support. As it happened, the screw hole is right on the balance point for the PF, which means it wobbles a bit. So I didn't use the screw, and I made a rubber packer to support the handle at the outside diameter.
I'll investigate funnels, thanks
