I made two, this thing works fine and save time when you get different spools from different providers. Thanks a lot to share.
I printed a couple versions of this spool holder to hold inexpensive PLA filament spools that have different dimensions than the MakerBot spools.

The result seems to work well, but I do have one suggestion.
I believe the design could be improved by doubling the height of the
bracket-end top-side spool shoulder
and adding a similarly sized
bracket-end bottom-side spool shoulder.
This would better control the position of inexpensive (and sometimes
slightly warped) filament spools.

Thank you for your time.
I printed one of these for a new spool of PLA I received with a smaller hole than the standard makerbot spools.

This seems to be working like a champ.

I printed it with 3 shells and a 20% fill.

<p>Very simple and effective extra spool holder. I'm surprised that Makerbot don't include multiple sized spool holders.</p>

<p>The object didn't require supports unlike other designs that I've seen.</p>

<p>Well done.</p>
