MMU2S and placing filaments on shelf ABOVE printer

Hi all,

I just have MMU2S update with a new buffer. I wish to place filament spools on shelf placed above printer to save some workspace on my table. Did anyone tried this already? Any experience with this solution?

I've got mine on hangars above the printer. No issues at all.

Can the same be said for the new buffer as well? I have the MK3S in an IKEA Lack enclosure and would like to minimize my footprint as much as possible.

Thank you.

This is the best way I've found. Just let them run free. (Ignore my ugly wall. It's seen some things...)

Could you give an explanation of how you set all of that up?! Looks amazing.

The PTFE tubes are just held in place by a clamp on the wall. The filament holders are stock MMU2 with the following additions:

It's all sitting on a wire shelf from Home Depot.

Here's some handy pegboard mounts if having the tubes flop around is too much for you:
