We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This was just an experiment creating a printable spool after I had seen one elsewhere on Thingiverse. I didn't have any, and needed a better way to manage my 1lb filament roll that had come with the printer.
I had intended to mount it to my workbench, but ended up just hanging the spool and it worked fine without the central hub.
Now I don't have to babysit my filament and untangle it every 5 minutes. :D
I've got some bearings now to use for this, so I'll probably be updating the hub to accommodate them.
Print all 4 files.
I did notice that the dovetails on the end part of the arms were very weak, so I'll be working on making a better attachment for that point.
