This is the second revision of the spool mount I am using for my Prusa Mendel. In this version, I am no longer using the top parts of http://thingiverse.com/thing:32320. I have designed my own top parts with bearings. This version still uses the bottom part of http://thingiverse.com/thing:30742 .


Print two of each:

You also need:

  • 2 x threaded rods of 8 mm x 20 cm and
  • 1 x threaded rod of 8 mm x 28 cm
  • 2 x bearings 608ZZ (or a plastic model)
  • 2 x 8mm washers and nuts (Wing nuts are better)

Sometimes, the spool tend to unwind itself when using "real" 608zz bearings. Instead, you can use plastic replacement (608zz Bearing Model)

Works perfectly with the left over smooth rod that I had laying about when i built my printer. Printed even with warping and it is still usable.
