This is simply a support piece that clips to the top of your BFB Touch printer and allows you to mount the normal Spool holder onto it.
Why? Because I find my filament keeps snapping in the long feed tubes from the the bottom, and this lets you use a very short feed tube.

Update: I have added a slightly longer version to accomodate larger spools.


Print out part. ( 60% or more fill for stiffness )
Un-screw spool holder from base of printer and re-mount in holder.
Clip on to top rail of printer - I find works best at the back.
(Works fine with the lid on too )
Place spool on holder .
Cut a short section of feed-tube to help guide the filament.
Feed the filament and enjoy !

Awesome, Ive printed two. Would you mind making a version just 10mm longer. Most spools are a bit wider and I cant put the cover on.

Done :-)
