This design is meant to sit above the printer, on the back wall. This allows the printer to sit close to a wall/take advantage of space. Other benefits inclue easier access to spool and no filament slipping.

It requires bearings and rod.
I used:
(4) bearings (5/16"OD ; 1/4" ID ; 1/4" Width)
(2) 7" lengths of 1/4" steel rod


1) Print out 2 copies of the spool holder.
2) Give the piece a light sanding.
3) Push the bearings into the holes.
4) Insert rods into bearings.
5) Place onto top of Solidoodle backwall.
6) Place spool on top of your new holder!

Note Scale up model by 25.4!!! (25.4mm=1in. NX exporting in metric & I made the part in inches)

How big is that spool

Where did you get the bearings and the steel rod? I'm looking to buy them on the internet, but I can make a trip to the hardware store if i have to

Going to print this out tonight. Nearly every one of my prints get funkied up because the filament won't feed from the spool, usually the second I turn my back. I'll probably change your design a bit to eliminate the rods and just use the 4x10x4 Bearings I have available.

Where did you get the giant spool

That looks to me like the spool that can be ordered with the Solidoodle.
