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)

-- Octave Natural ABS

This design printed up very nicely. What size ball bearings did you spec for the design?

It uses 12 - 5/16" ball bearings.

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 printed this on my Afinia and I love it. Thank you for sharing!

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.
