Summary

Ok! thats it! I beat the system. I have enough screws and LEDs to sort forever - no more throwing empty spools. Now I only need to print the drawers as fast as it runs out... kind of a paradox :)
pay attention to the measurements of the spools Im using- you can modify it as you will:
Inner circle : 90mm.
outer circle:200mm.
Hight : 56.5mm

Also you'll have to drill holes in the spool and use a long screw or pole through all the filaments.

hope it'll fit!
Enjoy!

This is pure Genius!! I printed up four of these and they fit my old Inland PLA spools perfectly without any modification! How do I drill the screw holes with any accuracy though? A drill guide that fits around the outside of the spool would be GREAT!

For a simple drill guide, check out my design at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2103466. Enjoy!

Damn, crashes my slic3r every time. Looks great though!

Just a quick note about my customized version. I had an error in there that was using the diameter as radius, so making it way too big. All fixed now! Thanks again for the original. :)

this is Genius. Now I have something to do with all my used up filament spools

someone remixed it to customize it !!!!

Such a clever idea to reuse spent filament reels!

Definitely needs to be remixed or made into a customizer!

Brilliant upcycling of an item usually discarded!

is this set up to run through the thingiverse customizer?

Such a clever idea! Thanks!
I put my first spool in our bin the other day and thought that it was such a waste to just throw them out, might have to make a few of these with empty spools!

How big is the hole through the drawer? I'm wondering if there's a way to use raw filament as the axle for the swivel over using (buying) a long screw. Run the raw filament through the holes, then melt each end a bit and push it flat to create a plug to hold the filament in place. I'll need to print one of these out when I get home and test it out!

I was going to get a brass rod from Lowes...gonna need something about 1/8" diameter and maybe 60mm long to hold the wings in...or maybe a small screw on each side

Either way, finally have something I can use all these empty filament spools for! Awesomeness!

What a great upcycling idea! Good job!

Excellent idea! Now add a rotating foot to it.

that's a good idea !

hello, very good idea!! can you share your CAD file? i ve a lot of different spool!! thx by advance!!

Hi! thanks for your comment. Ive designed it in Solidworks, so I only have a SLD file (or can export it to other format) , will it help?

Hi, great design! I think if you could export and upload it in STEP format it would be great for editing/remixing.

I use solidworks too !! Its perfect !! Thx a lot

Ok i'll upload it later today. cheers!
