Perpendicular Spool Holder by julienM Jan 7, 2013


After looking at a lot of spool holders, and realizing that most would not fit a 2.3 Kg spool, or could not be printed on a Prusa, I decided to design my own. This was the first part I designed and printed.

This configuration has the advantages of never rubbing on the top bars. Allows very fast replacement of spools.

Print one _end and one middle.

The end part requires the top bars to be a bit longer than necessary. Remove the two outside nuts, slide on the _end and re-tighten the nuts. The _middle is fastened with zip-ties.

Four 608 bearing on 8 mm rods hold the spool. By adjusting the nuts, different width spools can be accommodated.
