2 things I don't understand... what are you supposed to do with the two halves? Glue them together (assuming we're using PLA)? if so, I can see that the little holes on the far side of the cylinder are to hold the filament, but what about the other two holes. If you glue the two pieces together, the two other holes would end up in the middle of the spool and would be of no use. Something tells me the two pieces are not meant to be glued together...
There's an "Instructions" section for a reason.

my assumptions tells me the one side spool ( smaller diameter)slides into the larger diameter other side like other spools on the site for download.

Nice design - easy to print, looks very solid.

One request - can you add a clip or hole for holding the "loose" end of the filament to the spool? It doesn't have to be anything fancy, just a few holes in the rim, or perhaps slots to pull the filament into.

Very smooth design that prints well. I had some issues winding PLA onto this because it keeps springing back even after being tightly wound on.

Very cool though. Thank you.
