[EDIT:] first version was a bit loose: the holding teeth were too small so I've added some length & updated the files.

I got tired to remove broken pieces of filament in the plastic tubes and losing a print because of that. So I moved the spool spinners to the top using the cover holes and printed a few of these guides.

Works like a charm now and changing colors is not an hassle anymore!


Easy to print. I've printed 4 at the same time to let the top layers cool down a bit.
The inventor file is provided if you want to adapt to a different track size.

I was looking for a way to route wires to power some LEDs to illuminate the print bed (it's rather dark in there) and this great idea would work well for that. And good for what it's designed for, too! Thanks!

Great idea, I agree it's kind of dark some time.
Though with the spools on the top I don't have to mess with things under the platform so it's not so much an issue now.
If you think it's not strong enough (teeth too small) just tell me I'll upload an other STL.
