Since not everyone buys a Makerbot Replicator which has nice spool holders, we needed to create a spool holder so that we could leave my Printrbot Jr alone to do its thing.

A couple 3D printed parts and 3 Bic pens later, we had our solution! Hope you get some good use out of it!

(Not using your spool support anymore? Use the base to be patriotic and make a little Bic pen flag pole http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:97841 :)

Im having lots of trouble printing the connector parts a pad for more adhesion to the tape might be a good idea

If you don't feel like printing, a bottle of wine can actually serve as a nice spool holder as well! You also appear that much more classy to your friends!

Great idea for an easy to print spool holder.

This is perfect, and we have the same digital caliper!
