Description

This will hold a spool while allowing it to roll freely to feed filament. It prints in one piece that will (barely) fit on a cupcake platform.

Minimalistic indeed!
I modded it a bit, added some feet to help it not lift off my printbed, along with some guides to give my 608s something to sit on that was not threaded metal. I goofed a bit on my first print, not thinking that I needed to adjust the height after specifying the size of the bearings.

Works a treat, for the first time I've been able to make some unattended prints. Thanks!

Instructions

You will need 4 bearings with appropriate screws. I used 623s, but the design is, as always, parametric, so you can use whatever size you want. The STL is sized for MBI spools, which I measured as 74mm wide, but I've seen two or three other sizes, so measure your spool first! The one shown is from protoparadigm, and I had to print it 76mm wide.
