UP! / Afinia Filament Spool Holder by walter Oct 6, 2012

Description

Replacement Filament post for the UP! or Afinia 3D Printers. Designed to handle 700g filament spools from pp3dp and 1kg spools from Afinia, Octave and 3DD.

This design requires 12 - 5/16" ball bearings placed into the spool holder for it to work. (I used 5/16" slingshot ammo since it was cheaper and available in local sporting goods stores)

It uses 12 - 5/16" ball bearings.
This design printed up very nicely. What size ball bearings did you spec for the design?
I printed this on my Afinia and I love it. Thank you for sharing!

SWEET. Did you print 100% infill, or semisolid?
I don't recall what settings I used, but I don't think it needs dense infill. It will add some additional internal support ribs where it's needed, at least when printed on an Up.

I've downloaded, printed and assembled this. It looks great and works better than I thought it would. Great job and thank you!
I'm still looking for balls for the bearings, but other than that, I'm loving this holder.
