Spool holder for Prototype Supply filament. (Replicator, Replicator 2, and Replicator 2X)
by toybuilder, published
Replicator: Use the "r2d" version.
Replicator 2; Use the "r2e" version.
Replicator 2x: Use the "r2e" version.
This spool holder was created by editing the output of woale's Customizable Spool Holder for Replicator 2 -- thingiverse.com/thing:44906 to make the tongue fit into the slot on the Replicator.

The lastest spool holder works perfectly on my replicator 2! Thank you toybuilder for adjusting the part :)
Thanks for the pictures! I have updated the thing ("r2e" version) which should fit the shorter opening.
I'm sorry that you had a problem with the part.
I asked a customer to bring in his MakerBot official spool holder for his Replicator 2X, and it matched up against the official spool holder that I received with my (original) Replicator. Looking at them, and the printed part, it looks like this design should fit -- the tongue is narrower than that of the official ones. A much earlier version of this thing had the tongue too wide, but in its current form, it shouldn't be.
Could you perhaps take a picture to show where it is interfering? Maybe I'm still missing a detail for the R2?

Because this is a pretty big print, you will be fighting shrink and warp. If you can print PLA, I would recommend that. Also, to improve the strength of the spool holder, you might want to *slightly* under-report the filament diameter when slicing (or use any other techniques to fool the slicer into extruding plastic a *little* bit thicker). Finally, consider extruding the plastic a little hotter but slower than usual. YMMV.
Once your print is done, break off the little bridge-helper tabs.
