Using a: Ultimaker 2
Extruder Type: Bowden  Nozzle Size: 0.4
Settings: Hot Glass bed 60c  Extruder temp: 220c
Print Speed: 10mm/sec   Travelling speed: 150mm/sec  Infill: 20%  Layer height: 0.15mm
Supports and Raft: No
Time to print:  1 Hour 50 mins
Notes: Intricate design & therefore a slow print speed is needed to achieve good results. A thin layer of glue is also needed for good adhesion to the bed. Design by Charles Fried @pencil_stroke. 3D printed by GlobalFSD @3DGlobalFSD

Using a: Nop Head Mendel90 (RepRap)  Geared Extruder  Hot End Type: J Type
Nozzle Size: 0.4
Settings: Hot glass bed 55c, Bowden extruder temp 195c
Supports Used
Print Speed: 40 mm/s
Time to print: 9 Hours
Notes: Excuse the teeth marks in the ball its on load from my Border Terrier ;)
Sliced using KISSlicer at 0.2mm.  No scaffolding used except for the lamp bell.  Bed temp actually set at 70c, theres a 15c drop through the glass)
Diluted PVA applied to the glass with a brush and allowed to dry to a mist before printing.

Using a: Nop Head Mendel90 (RepRap)  Geared Extruder  Hot End Type: J Type
Nozzle Size: 0.4
Settings: Hot glass bed 55c, Bowden extruder temp 195c
 
Print Speed: 40 mm/s
Time to print: 7 hours and 45 minutes
Notes: Sliced with KISSlicer using 3 loops and 25% circular fill (probably a bit overkill I would use less next time) and no supports/scaffolding.
Bed temp was set at 70c (there is a 15c drop through the glass so the real temp was 55c)
Diluted kids PVA applied to the glass with a brush and allowed to dry to a mist before printing.

Notes: These brackets are a direct swap-in replacement for the ones supplied by Nop Head in his Mendel90 kit. They change the spool holder so it fits the ~200mm x ~69mm spools supplied by 3DFilaPrint.
 
Each bracket is made up of a male and female half, similar to Nop Heads original design and you need two brackets in total, one for each side. There is also an extended dust trap which needs to be printed which is fitted to the left hand bracket as per Nop Head's original design. All the nuts, bolts and bearings can be reused from the original spool holders, no additional components are required and also the bolts go through the same holes so no additional drilling is required. The original spool brackets can be swapped back at any time.
 
If printing in PLA make sure you have a few loops so its strong, I used 3 loops personally on the 0.4mm head and have not had any issues with strength.
Time shown to print is in PLA with circular 25% infill, 0.2mm layer height and 3 loops.
I sliced with KISSlicer, and the time breakdown was 1:40 per female bracket, 2:20 per male bracket, 1:20 for the dust filter.
Bed temperature was actually set at 70c (there is a 15 degree loss through the glass on a Nop Head Mendel90 so its really 55c). I also used diluted kids PVA for adhesion which I allow to dry to a mist before printing and wipe off with a damp cloth afterwards.
