Cube 3D Printer bulk filament spool adapter
by nafis, published
It turns out that you can by-pass/defeat the Dallas Semiconductor 1-wire chip which is located in each cartridge. The chip stores the filament color, remaining amount, etc.
This adapter allows you to connect the plastic filament tube and then connect to a spool of generic filament. It was printed on the cube (version 1)

wow, just tested with all my fingers crossed on my first gen, no problems at all! can't thank you enough for the tip. i didn't have to even load an empty cartridge, just 'loaded' a standard one but really inserted my own into the print head and voila. (using octave plastic)
can use the cube 3d printer 2nd generation?
This box can only print it!! so cool!!
What the note?

I made a spool holder out of some 1/2 cpvc tubing:
1) three pieces of 6"
2) four pieces of 1"
3) two pieces of 3"
4) six T fittings
5) two 90 degree fittings
I hand drilled a hole so you can leave the cartridge filament hanging out. I will update the CAD models when I get the chance.
