We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
A variation of the "ultimaker pla holder for 30mm reels" with an extended shaft to accomodate 10cm width (4") reels and a more steep guard to prevent the reels from falling.
Simplified and cleaned the geometry and made a Sketchup version.
New version (2.1) with dent for 5-6cm spools (helps them stabilize) and wider supports that fir more snugly in the Ultimaker's box.
Added a lock pin too.
(I've left the old version in case someone prefers it, but i'd recommend using at least the pin from the new one)
Print main part with suport, layer height not critical, but keep a fill of at least 30%. Pin can be printed without support.
Place it in the back of the Ultimaker replacing the "11B" standard reel holder.
Use the pin to lock the support in place inserting it in the spaces above the reel holder after it's inserted in the slots.
