This is a New design spool holder for the MakerGear M2 Printer. Less stress on filament and x-axis.
Project documentation is dowloadable as a pdf.
Project can be made using only items shipped with your m2 3d printer.
PLA was used for my prototypes and it works just fine.
All Models should be ready for slicing in the correct orientation.
A g-code file is included for printing the six required parts on a M2 Printer. It will print the set in under 3 1/2 hours.
It is recomended that you use 1/2" schedule 40 PVC pipe for your uprights and crossbar. You can get a 4 foot long piece for $1.25 at a home improvement store. If it is not available then you can use the supplied optional-tube.STL to print them.
