Large spool holder by pintokitkat Jan 24, 2013

Description

This is a holder designed to fit onto the side of my replicator to allow me to use the large diameter spools that some filament comes on.

It has a slight angle to encourage the spool to slide towards the frame rather than off it, and a small diameter (34mm) to fit most spool holes.

Not given them much of a test yet, but they look quite funky!

It was some gold PLA I had last year. I was buying filament from all over at that time (I use a Filastruder now) and sorry, but I can't remember where it came from.
where you get that filament from? i have same spool pattern but dont know where the reseller is getting from. also how is quality. looks like this gold color.

Instructions

It's a bit over-engineered and took a couple of hours to print both left and right versions on my replicator, but the filament spools are quite heavy. I used a 10% fill and it seems very solid - you could probably get away with less.

It screws to the side of the Replicator using the middle case screw - or rather it doesn't because it's a bit too thick, so I had to use a slightly longer M3 (only a couple of mills longer).
