Spool Holder for Taulman Nylon
by Vivenda, published
Comes in two versions.
Version 1 has the open top for the spool holder so it sits in without clipping on. Easy for roll changes.
Version 2 is closed. Spool clips into place so it's not accidently knocked off it's perch.

You're quite right. Since it was originally intended to be printed with Nylon, and nylon has a bit more flexibility I made it with less tolerance. I wlil probably revisit this one and make it PLA/ABS friendlier.
Thanks for the design, this will help.
I printed V2 (enclosed) in ABS and it printed very well (no warping or anything), but the snap-in pieces are tighter than I would like. When it came to installing the spindle that goes through the spool I actually used a hobby knife to shave off the outer snap features entirely. I found that it was far too tight otherwise, and all the other joints were so tight to begin with that it really doesn't need any snap features to hold the spindle in place.
