Spool support for wooden spool holder by richard_j_m Jun 30, 2013

Description

One of the first things I made for my 3D printer was a spool holder. This was just made up from some 19x19 wood I had lying about. However it was difficult to change spools so I've printed this support designed for an equilateral triangle wooden spool holder.

I like the combination of wood with printed parts. We often over engineer plastic printable parts when wood is quicker, stronger and uses less filament. Might think about a wooden printer...
