30mm spool holder for makerbot replicator 2 and 2x by Duke360 May 1, 2013

Description

i've bought some PLA spool that have a 30mm hole, they simply doesn't fit in the spool holder the hole is too small and also the rod of the original pieces is too short.
so i've drawn a new spool holdet that fit perfectly in the replicator 2 and 2x, it is also inspired to the original design with some minor improvements to make it a little more durable.

hope this help!

it requires support to print: it is intended to be printed "standing up", the support required is not that much, just the ones required to build the octagonal basement. the rest are very few support on the sides that are usually irrelevant
I was trying to do this piece as my first 3D printed part. It started printing and then it occurred to me that it has a massive overhang, I don't understand how this will print without support underneath it (it actually started and it failed). Am I missing something, do I need to add something to the print file? Is it normally printed with the replicator 2X and scaffolding? Any help would be much appreciated (both for my edification and printing the part). Thanks
