Filament Spool Clip by walter Oct 13, 2012

Description

Small clip that attaches to the edge of the spool. Holds the end of the filament in place so it doesn't unraveling when in storage.

These are Awesome!!! Thankyou for such good clips! :-)
These are nice and compact compared to others and they hold perfectly for both UP & Octave spools. Printed on an UP!
The Octave clips work for the other suppliers such as -
Bilby CNC
3D Printer Gear.

Cheers!
I added a new version of the Octave clip that is more likely to work with other printers and plastics.
Printed one in PLA. Clipped onto the Octave spool pretty well, but it didn't hold the filament! I printed using ReplicatorG on a Makerbot Replicator1.
