Description

This is a spindle for 40mm spools.

Combine with some Tinkertoys and you've got yourself a handy way to feed another color into your printer without removing existing spools.

I know, right? Archimedes posted one a couple hours before I did:

I have a theory that a new spindle of some kind is posted to Thingiverse every forty minutes or so.
Shows up on the same day as my solution does.

I'll probably build something like this one day.

Instructions

No construction necessary. Print two and fit onto a 1cm shaft.

Depending on your printer's fidelity, you may want to wrap a piece of tape around the inner shaft of each spindle to ensure a snug fit into your spool.

I use a strip of painters' tape on each spindle. Works great.
