I've loaded 3mm "bundles" like that successfully, but the one 2.2kg bundle of 1.75mm PLA I loaded like that tangled horribly. The point of this spool is to wind a couple of 1kg bundles I have on so I can fix all the tangles before I start printing. I only buy spooled plastic now...
or a removable side, like mine: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Choose one of the inner holes: Either the 52mm hole for plastic spool compatibility, or the 8mm hole if you just want to put it on a smooth rod. Of course you can draw your own central hub to any size.
Cut two copies. The design is optimized to fit in a square of material. Take all of the spokes from both cuts and dry fit. Then glue (only 2 or 3 spokes really need to be glued, the rest aren't going anywhere). Two of the spokes have holes for securing the start of the filament.
