Spool for Laywoo-D3 3mm and 1.75mm by 3Dprintergear Dec 29, 2012

Description

I designed this spool specifically for the Laywoo-D3 filaments. This one is actually printed in the Laywoo-D3 filament. Its a little bendy, and I suggest printing in either ABS or PLA.
I also designed this to be printable on an UP printer (140x140mm) and with no support.

Hole in the middle of the spool is just 2mm diameter too small to fit on the spool holder.
I like the design.

But looks like I'll have to make my own in openscad with larger hole.
hole centres 7.5mm apart on arms - guess I can still use your arms.

Had a thought. resized the hub to 110% in makerware and reduced the height, so it prints quicker. If I enlarge the arms also to 110% everything should still fit and the hole will be big enough to fit my spool holder. I'll let you know how well it works :-)

worked brilliantly ! hardest part was getting the laywood roll unrolled and wound onto the spool.

Great design, and for any flashforge creator users - print at 110% and it'll fit the standard print spool holders :-)

Oh yeah and instead of bolts, just use small cable ties. Just as strong.

Update. While it looks good, it's totally nonfunctional ! lol
Arms are too long and catch the filament and snap it. Even with a spacer to push it nearer the locking nut it's just too big to turn.

So what i actually need is one with arms about half the length and a bigger middle.
Guess I'll have to make my own after all :-)
Superb design! I'm gonna unspool it and spool it again to prevent any possible tangles. Think I will be able to sleep in peace tonight. Thank you for uploading!!! :))
This spool won't fit an Ultimaker 2. Any recommendations?

Print out one hub and 3 spool arms. They are adjustable for either 3mm rolls or 1.75mm rolls. Fasten an 8mm M3 screw/bolt from the back of the hub. There are provisions for two bolts if required.

The centre hub is 30mm in diameter.

Gizmodorks on eBay is selling it on spools in 0.8 Kg weight: ebay.com/itm/321348796045?var=510246481696&;ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
Works fine except for spooling on the filament which has a bad lay and has a tendency to tangle itself.
Yes totally agree. Not sure what can be done about that though. Maybe one day it will be sold on reels and we won't need to print our own!
This thing goes really well with the "Ultimaker Filament Spool Brackets"

Provided that you have an Ultimaker, that is :)
Printed nice and quick! Thanks!
You are welcome!
