Great part(s), but it will not work for the larger spools some companies are supplying

Best holder by far!!!!!

This was one of the first things I printed with my printer. Been using it for a few months now. Works great

Instructions

I was a bit dissatisfied with the spool holder supplied with the Solidoodle 2. It forced me to position the printer very far from the wall and I felt it could be improved upon.

The holder is designed to accommodate a 1" PVC pipe. The pipe should be approximately 10.5" long. Light sanding on the flats mat be required for proper fitment. 8 small wood screws are also required for assembly

Honestly, it is a bit overbuilt and could be improved upon. Feel free to edit.

It works fine on my soildoodle 3 too. I use 3/4 pvc with caps on the end. the caps fit snugly into the printed pieces.

Definitely overbuilt, but it is working great with the Solidoodle filament rolls. I made a spacer for the larger spools but there just isn't quite enough room for them so I have to slide it forward a little. Could use another inch to get the big ones to clear.

Thanks for the work!!

I couldn't get right_upright.stl to load properly so I checked it in netfabb and discovered it had negative volume. I ran it through the cloud version of netfabb and fixed it (here's the repaired file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/qaxa... ) so it ought to work now.

Nice design, though. Hopefully my print of it turns out.
