A hub to hold(and eventually spool) your filament using a gear bearing to replace the 2 608s.

It spins smoothly, but need to tweak the gears to handle weight.


Still a work in progress. Visit the hub derivative page for needed hardware/remaining printed parts.

Will be updating over the next few days

Printed at 0.4 mm layer height with 75% infill and 2 perimeters, needs higher infill along with gear design changes

Will be trying 0.2mm layer height with 80% infill 2-3 perimeters after gear redesign
