Description

Here is a spooler I made for someone on #reprap. It works quite well and decided to share it.

PS why did you add those wires coming from the inside? instead of using the regular yellow black cables?
Well thats a coincidence! I use the exact same power supply unit for my reprap! (which is nearing completion). i see you use RAMPS as well, does it hold well with all the needed Amps? love this design as well btw;) thats how I got here obvously...
This thingi works great! Printing a second one now.

Brilliant design !! Kudos on creating an SCAD version.
I love this minimalist design. Great use of the spool as part of solution. Since ABS is hydroscopic, some sort of moisture-proofing would make this perfect.

Nice work.
This looks very similar to this other thing: thingiverse.com/thing:11134

I like the fact that you've done it in OpenScad as it makes for a more easily modifiable design.
Yes that is what inspired me to make this. That one won't fit the spools I use. Unfortunately no source on that one so I needed to start from scratch. Enjoy!
