Up! Mini Octave Spool Holder by scocioba Feb 19, 2013

Description

Printed using my Up! mini for my Up! Mini. Octave.com sells affordable spools in the 1kg size and their form factor is much wider than the standard spools. I just bought a spool and needed a holder so I made this one quickly on tinkercad. Its my first time using the software so bare with me and feel free to edit and tweak the design to your liking. Enjoy.

This thing was made with Tinkercad. Edit it online tinkercad.com/things/iROEIGvrb5g

It works great. I would probably make the lip gap in the back where it attaches to the printer smaller to a distance of 2mm for a tighter fit but overall its good. Just use a tweezer or something to lift the lip into the slot so it can fit. Once its in it will stay in and the end lip securely holds the spool. The bigger lip gap does give the holder a little bit of play to it but that may be a good thing in case of a snag. I printed it solid and took me 2.5 hours.
