Summary

I was never satisfied with some of the larger spool holders that only held Makerbot spools. So I went back to the drawing boards and came up with this. Just slide you spool on it and slides like a dream. I've tried it with both Makerbot and the fatter, smaller ID spools and its works great.

Instructions

  1. Print
  2. Replace a y-axis rod cap of your choice with this spool holder.
  3. Install Spool.

Really a nice design.I love the way the screws are accessible with the screwdriver, that rigidity is obtained through design rather than from printing it @ max density and that there is a little border to prevent the spool from falling (whithout needing support for printing it). Would give it 4.5 stars out of five if possible :).
Printed 5 of it flawlessly (most at 60% which is seems dense enough for a 1kg spool)
