For Solidoodle 2 and presumably Solidoodle 3, this assembled item mounts on the existing spool opening and is intended to guide the filament through the opening without creating shaving dust that could clog the extruder. It additionally has a cavity for placing a sponge inside and surrounding the filament to clean it of any dust on it's way through, ensuring clean filament only into the hot end.


Printed at .3mm at normal to slower speeds to keep threads intact. Designed to be printed without support necessary.

Hello nice work! for the thread depth is it a square 2 x 2 mm ? or 3 x 3 mm thanks

It worked on my Solidoodle 4. (But another 1/4"of thread would have helped. It fit with the rubber gasket in place. Without rubber it wobbled. I'd recommend updating the threats to add a little more thread length.

made it, had to fix warp off bed by setting temp at 80C then it took 4.5 hrs for big half and 2.5 hrs small to print

At what speed? Mine were less than an hour each.

Try using RepetierHost and updating it to the latest version from the RepetierHost website. The slic3r settings it uses seem to generate nice prints in 1/2 the time
